Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education Call for Papers

Deadline for article submissions is February 1, 2012.  The Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education aims to advance the status and prospects for publicly engaged teaching and research in the academy by showcasing the new disciplinary and/or pedagogical knowledge generated by engagement with the community. The Journal provides a dedicated venue for higher education faculty, staff, and administrative leadership to reflect on the ways that community engagement affects research, teaching, and service activities in higher education – and its related outcomes for the classroom, the advancement of research and knowledge creation across the disciplines, faculty development, tenure and promotion processes, the preparation of graduate students, etc. The Journal welcomes diverse manuscripts, from empirically‐based examinations to critical reflection pieces, theoretical investigations, commentaries, case studies, and pedagogical and research designs. All submissions must identify implications for the growth and viability of public scholarship in the academy. 

Call for Papers: Service-Learning in the Humanities

The Fall 2012 issue of the journal Interdisciplinary Humanities will be a special issue on service-learning in the humanities.  The editors welcome submissions of articles, essays, and reflective pieces on service-learning from various points of view: students, faculty, agency mentors, and higher-education and non-profit community administration and staff. Documents may focus on studies, theory, practice, interdisciplinary collaboration, and school-community partnerships as they apply to service-learning. The co-editors for this special issue are Isabel Baca (University of Texas-El Paso) and Joana Owens (Jacksonville University).  

More Information on Interdisciplinary Humanities: Interdisciplinary Humanities is a refereed scholarly journal, published three times a year by the Humanities Education and Research Association (HERA). The journal accepts articles that deal with "any learning activities with content that draws upon the human cultural heritage, methods that derive from the humanistic disciplines, and a purpose that is concerned with human values." Articles dealing with the interdisciplinary humanities or humanities education at all levels (K-12, college, and adult learning) are welcome, as are creative works of poetry, fiction and non-fiction that reflect the journal's interests and the themes of specific issues. For more information about IH's sponsoring organization, see HERA's website at: 

Submission Guidelines: Interdisciplinary Humanities defines “interdisciplinary humanities education” as any learning activities with content that draws upon the human cultural heritage, methods that derive from the humanistic disciplines, and a purpose that is concerned with human values. Academic courses don’t have to be labeled “humanities” to be interdisciplinary. Integrated courses and units are often disguised under such names as World History, Freshman English, Music Appreciation, Beginning Spanish, Introduction to Religion, Senior Honors, etc. Integration can range from the use of a novel in a history course to team teaching to comprehensive thematic extravaganzas that combine the arts, literature, philosophy, and social sciences. We welcome manuscripts from university colleagues, but also ones that examine interdisciplinary scholarship and education in elementary grades, teacher education, adult public programs, graduate seminars, educational radio and television, museums, and historic parks. More detailed information on submission guidelines can be found at 

Editorial decisions for publication are normally made within four months following submissions. 
Upcoming and proposed editions of Interdisciplinary Humanities are subject to change without notice.

CCNCCE invites you to collaborate with your colleagues to submit a proposal for the 2012 Annual National Conference - Leaders Leading Leaders in Service Learning and Civic Engagement on May 23-25, 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

As you prepare your proposals please keep in mind the three major focuses of this year's conference: Leadership, Technology, and Higher Education's Mission to Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement

How is higher education meeting its civic and democratic mission?

The 2012 CCNCCE Conference will invigorate your knowledge and imagination by assisting you, through its new format, to return to your campus with new strategies, best practices, informed information and passion, to implement the necessary steps to take you to the next level in helping build our future and our leaders.
