Dear Colleagues, 

I wanted to make you aware of a publication opportunity with the upcoming special issue of Experiential Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ELTHE), and the recently published call for submissions

ELTHE is a publication in partnership with the National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE) and Nova Southeastern University, and this special issue is dedicated to the theme: Exploring the Relationship between Experiential Learning and Social, Economic, Environmental, and Racial Justice. We welcome scholar-practitioners, faculty, staff, administrators, community partners, and all experiential learning educators working in or with higher education institutions to contribute to this scholarly dialogue. This stems from the work of the NSEE Research and Scholarship Committee, working to foster pathways for scholarly work to continue building the field of experiential education. 

At this pivotal moment in between a global pandemic, a global racial justice movement, and a politically divisive environment challenging democracy, experiential learning and teaching spaces are critical to connect communities, address social issues, explore solutions, and embrace change to foster the public good. This special issue seeks to explore and deepen the relationship between experiential learning and justice. Through generating dialogue on this topic, we seek to expand inquiry into and interrogation of educational practices and strategies that affect social, economic, environmental, and racial justice. We are accepting proposals for scholarly papers or creative works that include:

  • Research-based approaches
  • Practice-based approaches
  • Theory-building approaches/ thought pieces on praxis
  • Community-based methodologies (e.g., community-based research, action research, participatory research, etc.)
  • Public Scholarship/Multimodal submissions (e.g., creative, humanities-centric, artistic representations with narrative)
