Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Decolonizing Higher Education Canada & South Africa: Due January 15, 2018

Posted on

This exciting dual-site research project is a comparative study of student led/directed efforts to decolonise/Indigenise higher education in Canada and South Africa. Sparked by the University of Winnipeg’s Indigenous Course Requirement, and South Africa’s widespread #FeesMustFall protests, this project seeks to comparatively investigate ways students in higher education are narrating, resisting and challenging colonial legacies in their unique contexts. This project explores ways that students are reimagining and engaging with their own education to develop emergent spaces that challenge violence and insecurity related to colonial legacies.

14th Annual International Globalization, Diversity, and Education Conference
 
The conference theme, Power and Cultural Politics in Antiracist and Decolonial Education and Educational Research: Intersectionality, Resistance, and Survival, invites proposals for paper presentations, workshops, and posters that share research that interrogates the cultural politics of education and engages scholarship that critically examines the relationships between knowledge, power, and experience in education for greater equity and justice. What is the role of education and of educational research in a public culture of dissent? How can oppositional pedagogies, or “pedagogies of dissent” (Mohanty, 2003) operate in the context of cultural politics? What does it look like in K-12 education and higher education? Presentations that interrogate the cultural politics of education and engage in questions of knowledge, power, and experience in education for greater equity and justice are especially welcomed.

Call for Papers: Pedagogies of Resistance (Canadian Journal for New Scholars in Education), Due January 8th 2018

Call for Papers: Pedagogies of Resistance
The Canadian Journal for New Scholars in Education (CJNSE) supports educational researchers and educators who are committed to anti-oppressive work, which criticizes the ways power is used and abused against those who are minoritized. As such, our Spring 2018 issue will focus on “Pedagogies of Resistance.”

In this issue, we wish to build on the ways educationalists can examine diverse educational spaces in such a way that encourages dialogue and action in an effort to do and be better. It is only through engaging in this work that we, as critical scholars of education, can strive for social and educational spaces where people of all ages and backgrounds feel valued, respected, and safe.

Pedagogies of Resistance invites submissions from graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty, and community educators.

Manuscripts must be formatted according to the APA Manual (6th edition) and include a covering letter. Persons interested in submitting should review the guidelines on the CJNSE website. Manuscripts must be submitted through the online portal by January 8th, 2018 23:59 PST.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1nB66Jf2k4RXMCT-5MzVngJwRt3SoNcvUo8zM5Cw5EW4/edit

Article Reviewers (ongoing): As a non-masked peer-reviewed journal (one where the reviewer(s) and the author(s) are provided each others’ names) we require graduate students (as well as post-docs and faculty) who are willing to review articles that have been submitted to the journal for publication. Reviewers are selected based on the interests they submit when they register for the CJNSE website.

Typically, reviewers may be asked to review one article per year, but this depends on whether or not your research interests align with what has been submitted; you may also decline to participate if your schedule does not allow you the time to volunteer. A review consists of reading a submission and providing feedback based on the review form. This will take 1-2.5 hours of your time, roughly.

Review Mentors (ongoing): Review mentors are often (but not always) PhD candidates who have some experience with the academic publishing process. Their role is to help the author(s) whose pieces have been accepted to take the feedback from the reviewers and make the article publishable. This may include helping the author(s) with editing and copyediting, suggesting additional sources, constructive criticism, and encouragement. The Review Mentor for an article will be further mentored by a Senior Review Editor.

This time commitment is in the range of 4-5 hours per article. Again, you will only be asked to be a Review Mentor if your research interests align with what has been submitted for a particular issue, and typically you will only be asked to volunteer once per academic year. In order to be selected as a potential Review Mentor, interested individuals must register for the CJNSE website and indicate their academic research interests.
