LEARNING IN GLOBAL CITIES
Call for papers
London Review of Education, UCL Institute of Education
The London Review of Education seeks contributions about learning in global cities, for publication in summer/early autumn 2016, to complement and extend a feature about learning in London.
The ‘Learning in London’ feature aims to lift the lid on the city’s complex mix of success and difficulty, with high youth unemployment and persistent health inequalities despite a buoyant economy and strong educational achievement. The feature will locate research on attainment, wellbeing and progression within London’s context. It aims to analyse the key challenges of life and learning in London, and to offer new perspectives, perhaps by way of interdisciplinary research.
In the same issue, we hope to publish research and analysis that takes a similar approach to any aspect of education in other global cities in all parts of the world. Whether your expertise is learning in Beijing or Paris, Buenos Aires, Boston, Bangkok, Dubai, Stockholm, New York or any other of the modern global cities, we are keen to hear from you.
Articles are subject to full peer review. Research articles are generally around 6,000 words in length and must be written in good, standard English. Guidance for submissions can be found on the journal’s website (ioepress.co.uk/journals/london-review-of-education).
Please send expressions of interest, abstracts or completed manuscripts as soon as possible to the journal’s managing editor, Pat Gordon-Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org). The initial deadline for submission of manuscripts is 31 December 2015.
