 Call For Papers: International Perspectives on School Choice 
Volume 3, No. 1, February 1, 2016 
Editors: Ann Allen, Ohio State University and Marytza Gawlik, Florida State University 

School choice and the market approach to public education is an important international phenomenon. Although school choice takes various forms across the globe, there is a myriad of common issues. School choice and the privatization of schooling raise questions about how choice schools are managed, including the use of private management organizations, the role of marketing in K-12 education, the tensions related to school choice admissions, and of course funding dilemmas school choice policies create. We particularly solicit works that approach topics from multidisciplinary perspectives, including law, economics, political science, education, etc. This issue of Global Education Review will focus on the issues and challenges that educators, researchers, and policy makers face in the growing marketplace for K-12 education. 
Submissions should address some or all of the following: 

 Issues and challenges related to educating students in a landscape of school choice. 
 Impact of school choice polices, practices, and strategies on the delivery of government-supported education. 
 Effects of school choice policies, practices and strategies on teaching and teacher quality. 
 Analysis of school choice policies and their impact on important educational issues such as educational finance, social cohesion, and equity and access. 

Please send an abstract in 12 point font of no more than 250 words to: or by March 1, 2015. Abstracts will be reviewed for fit. You will be informed if the article is invited for review. Full manuscripts are due by May 1, 2015.

Call For Papers-- Curriculum Inquiry 
Special Issue (to be published in January 2016, Volume 46, Number 1)
The Editors of Curriculum Inquiry are seeking manuscripts for a special review issue scheduled to be published in January, 2016. This issue will feature essay reviews written by new scholars of curriculum studies. “New scholars” include students actively enrolled in a graduate program in curriculum studies or related fields at the time of submission as well as individuals who completed a graduate degree after January 2013.
This review issue of the journal aims to recognize the insights of new scholars as commentators on recent as well as “classic” books in curriculum studies. By showcasing their work in this special issue, the Editors of Curriculum Inquiry would like to encourage and honour their valuable contributions to the field.
For this special issue, the Editors are interested in receiving essay reviews based on two or more books that can either be recent books (published in or after 2012) or “classic” books (published before 1990 and considered to have had a substantial impact on the field*). The reviews should identify and critically examine key themes or issues raised by the books, in relation to other relevant sources and/or contemporary perspectives and debates in the field. In the case of “classic” books, the Editors are interested in reviews that highlight the historical significance of the books and their relevance to contemporary issues and perspectives in the field. The Editors are particularly interested in essay reviews that juxtapose or bring into dialogue a “classic” book with one or more recent book(s), and thus take a comparative approach to reviewing them.
All manuscripts submitted to Curriculum Inquiry are subjected to a preliminary internal review by the editorial team, and those deemed appropriate for publication in the journal will be sent anonymously to external reviewers.
Submission Deadline: May 1, 2015
Manuscripts for this special issue are expected to be between 5000 and 8000 words. To see examples of essay reviews, you may consult Volume 41, Number 1 of Curriculum Inquiry (2011). Guidelines for manuscript submission along with other relevant information will be available on the journal’s website. Questions can be addressed to Sardar Anwaruddin
We look forward to receiving your submissions! Thank you,
The Editors of Curriculum Inquiry

The Ninth International Conference on Language Teacher Education welcomes proposals for papers and symposia on all aspects of the education and professional development of language teachers. Papers and symposia may report on data-based research, theoretical and conceptual analyses, or best practices in language teacher education.

The mission of the conference is to address the education of teachers of all languages, at all instructional and institutional levels, and in all the many national and international contexts in which this takes place, including: English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) instruction; foreign/modern/world language teaching; bilingual education; immersion education; indigenous and minority language education; and the teaching of less commonly taught languages. The conference aims to bring together teacher educators from these many contexts to discuss and share research, theory, and best practices and to initiate and sustain meaningful professional dialogue across languages, levels, and settings. The conference will focus on the following four broad themes:
  • The Knowledge Base of Language Teacher Education
  • Social, Cultural, and Political Contexts of Language Teacher Education
  • Collaborations in Language Teacher Education
  • Processes of Language Teacher Education
See detailed information about the conference themes at:

CALL FOR PAPERS: Association of Mexican American Educators (AMAE) Journal, Special Issue: Complicating the Politics of Deservingness: A Critical Look at Latina/o Undocumented Migrant Youth

Association of Mexican American Educators (AMAE) Journal 

Patricia Sánchez, University of Texas-San Antonio 
Oscar Jiménez-Castellanos, Arizona State University 
Antonio Camacho, Los Angeles Unified School District 


Association of Mexican American Educators (AMAE) Journal Special Issue 

Complicating the Politics of Deservingness: 
A Critical Look at Latina/o Undocumented Migrant Youth 

Guest Editors: Genevieve Negrón-Gonzales (University of San Francisco), Leisy Abrego (University of California, Los Angeles) and Kathleen Coll (University of San Francisco) 

The separation of marginalized people into categories of deserving/undeserving, civil/uncivil, and worthy/unworthy is not new; yet it took on a new dimension when, in the summer of 2014, tens of thousands of Central American refugee children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border made headlines. Although the migration and settlement of Mexican and Central American children has a long history, for the first time, the public saw images of children packed into bare rooms, sleeping on the floor, in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. The collective, if short-lived, outrage was later followed simultaneously by angry protests that blocked buses of children from entering towns and supporters who welcomed them. Protesters considered them dangerous invaders while supporters invoked notions of innocent childhood. The media coverage and competing actions opened the space for conversations about what is now very clearly a “broken” U.S. immigration system tied to violently consequential foreign policies in the region. Indeed, undocumented youth in the immigrant rights movement have been mobilizing to put an end to the reprehensible immigrant detention and deportation system that makes them and their families vulnerable. 

In this special issue, we aim to highlight the complex and important ways in which the experiences and institutional interactions of refugee children, undocumented youth, and young immigrants are both distinct and interconnected. Challenging notions of deservingness that distinguish between “good” versus “bad” immigrants, we solicit contributions informed by a structural analysis of childhood and youth as it has played out in the discourse about the lived experiences of immigrant youth and their families. Our goal is to open the space for a critical immigration scholarship that grapples with the production of illegality, citizenship as a commodity, and a disruption of the deserving/undeserving immigrant narrative. We invite pieces that complicate the contemporary conversation about undocumented young people as well as those that problematize the myth of a U.S. context that protects childhood and families of color. 
The special issue will bring together conversations about “DREAMers,” unaccompanied migrant children, and grassroots struggles working to transform the current immigration system and end the institutional violence it engenders. Together, submissions will acknowledge U.S. intervention, global capitalism, geopolitics, and racism in this multi-layered migration regime. We are particularly interested in manuscripts that are interdisciplinary and that engage with the complexity of these dynamics and the nuances in the broader field. We welcome manuscripts 

that offer theoretical perspectives; research findings; innovative methodologies; pedagogical reflections; and implications related to (but not limited to) the following areas: 

● Political subjectivities of “DREAMers” & unDACAmented youth 
● The unaccompanied child migrant “crisis” 
● Grassroots activism around immigrant rights 
● Deportation, detention, and the state 
● The politics of a divide between “deserving” children and “undeserving” adult immigrants 
● Undocumented children and the educational system 
● Legal services provision and due process for youth 
● Local and municipal responses to federal policies 
● The relationship between immigration debates and the welfare and carceral systems 

Submissions suitable for publication in this special issue include empirical papers, theoretical/conceptual papers, historical work, essays, book reviews, and poems. It is important to note that the special issue is interested in the broader Latina/o experience and not solely focused on the experiences of Mexican Americans (per the title of the journal). 

The selection of manuscripts will be conducted as follows: 

1. Manuscripts will be judged on strength and relevance to the theme of the special issue. 
2. Manuscripts should not have been previously published in another journal, nor should they be under consideration by another journal at the time of submission. 
3. Each manuscript will be subjected to a blind review by a panel of reviewers with expertise in the area treated by the manuscript. Those manuscripts recommended by the panel of experts will then be considered by the AMAE guest editors and editorial board, which will make the final selections. 

Manuscripts should be submitted as follows: 

1. Submit via email both a cover letter and copy of the manuscript in Microsoft Word to: Dr. Genevieve Negrón-Gonzales ( ). 
2. Cover letter should include name, title, short author bio (100 words), and institutional affiliation; indicate the type of manuscript submitted and the number of words, including references. Also, please indicate how your manuscript addresses the call for papers. 
3. Manuscripts should be no longer than 7,000 words (including references) and have an abstract of 200 words or less. Please follow the standard format of the American Psychological Association (APA). Include within the text all illustrations, charts, and graphs. Manuscripts may also be submitted in Spanish. 

Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2015. Please address questions to Dr. Genevieve Negrón- Gonzales ( ) or Dr. Patricia Sánchez ( ). Authors will be asked to address revisions to their manuscripts during the summer months of 2015. This special issue is due to be published in December 2015.
