CALL FOR PAPERS: SPECIAL ISSUE: Exploring the Relationship between Experiential Learning and Social, Economic, Environmental, and Racial Justice

Guest Editor: Patrick M. Green, EdD, Loyola University Chicago,

National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE) Engaged Scholar

We invite you to submit a proposal (maximum 500 words) for inclusion in a special issue of Experiential Learning & Teaching in Higher Education (ELTHE), focusing on social, economic, environmental, and racial justice. ELTHE focuses on concepts, strategies, practices, research, and scholarship relevant to experiential educators and the communities in which they work. For more information about the journal visit https://nsuworks.nova.edu/elthe/

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 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.
