Call for Papers

Two Call for Papers opportunities:

Life in Inclusive Classrooms:
Storytelling with Disability Studies in Education ››

Life in Inclusive Classrooms seeks to draw attention to the use of storytelling as a critical strategy for creating a new, expanded conversation about inclusive classrooms and school communities. We are seeking essays that explore how disability, inclusion, and exclusion feel to those who are inside “inclusive” classrooms.

Manuscripts Due: March 15, 2016

 

Queering Education: Pedagogy, Curriculum, Policy ››

Report: experiences of children born into LRA captivity

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the publication of a field note by the Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP) titled “We Are All the Same: Experiences of children born into LRA captivity”.
This note documents the views, experiences and hopes of 29 children born into the captivity of the Lord’s Resistance Army and now living in the urban centre of Gulu. As an often overlooked category of survivors, it offers nuanced findings as to the children’s lived experiences and makes key recommendations to ensure their inclusion and redress in transitional justice.
Also, researcher Beth Stewart reflects on the process of documentation and the questions raised by the children who participated in blog on JRP’s website here: http://justiceandreconciliation.com/blog/2016/i-want-to-ask-why-are-you-writing-this-documenting-the-experiences-of-children-born-into-lra-captivity/

This month, Youth Circulations features a series of conversations between two migration scholars, Heide Castañeda (University of South Florida) and Kristin Yarris (University of Oregon).

Their research is funded by The Wenner Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and is a collaboration with Dr. Juan Manuel Mendoza of the Universidad Autonoma de Sinaloa.
