"Pedagogical Perspectives on Race, Class, and Gender in Community Development” - Special Symposium of the Journal of Public Affairs Education
Call for Papers Date:
This symposium seeks to bring together an interdisciplinary group of authors to write on the importance of integrating race, class, and gender into college coursework and practitioner training programs in community development, in addition to pedagogical methods for this integration.
Potential papers may consider, but are not limited to, the following topics:
● Empirical analyses, including case studies, of the intercultural competence of community development practitioners and the need for training;
● The role of higher education- in terms of student preparation/ engagement/ collaboration- in community development practice and/or theory;
● Pedagogical tools and examples that can be used in the classroom to foster cultural competency; and
● Theoretical discussions on the merits and challenges of community-based research versus traditional research in terms of community development and student learning.
Papers can either focus exclusively on race, class, or gender or on the intersections of race, class and gender in the context of education and training for community development practitioners and/or researchers.
