Call for Submissions

 

The Role of Performances in Educational Practices

We are welcoming submissions to be considered for publication in our twenty-fourth issue titled The Role of Performances in Educational Practices (Autumn, 2019). We are interested in manuscripts that focus on the use of performances in process and/or product to inquire, learn, teach and foster change. We define performances broadly to include a range of embodied approaches and activities (such as drama, dance, music and informal play). We are interested in articles that use different modes of portrayal, that show rather than just tell, and that demonstrate the impact on learners, teachers and, or audiences, and any challenges encountered.

Generally, manuscripts should be 4000-6000 words in Microsoft Word (Times New Roman 12-point font) and formatted according to APA style guidelines. Visuals and other forms of representation are welcome and may be shorter. All submissions should include keywords, an abstract of not more than 100 words and a biography of about 100 words accompanied by a digital photograph and two manuscripts, one blinded for review (see link to checklist below). Any graphics should be in JPEG format (highest possible resolution; minimum 150 dpi), with articles sent as attachments to mstewart@learnquebec.ca. 

LEARNing Landscapes is an open access online education journal supported by LEARN (Leading English Education and Resource Network). Published in the autumn and spring of each year, it attempts to make links between theory and practice and is built upon the principles of partnership, collaboration, inclusion, and attention to multiple perspectives and voices. The material in each publication shares and showcases leading educational ideas, research and practices in Quebec and beyond by including articles, interviews, visual representations, arts-informed and multi-media texts, etcetera, that we hope will inspire teachers, administrators, and other educators to reflect upon and develop innovative possibilities within their own practices.

 


Deadline for submissions is September 1, 2019.
