The Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning is accepting submissions for their special issue “Centering Social Justice in the Scholarship of Community Engagement.”
The issue will highlight how scholars have centered social justice when designing and implementing service-learning opportunities or producing and applying engaged scholarship.
The editors invite abstracts for submissions from educators and researchers from all fields and disciplines that:
*Report research on the challenges, motivations, and experiences of practicing community engagement
*Explore the often-overlooked contributions to the field of community engaged-scholarship by educators, researchers, practitioners, community partners, and community members from historically marginalized backgrounds
*Evaluate methodologies for the practice and research of engagement based on their ability to achieve social justice
*Apply the lessons of critical theoretical and methodological lenses such as post-colonial theory, feminism, critical race theory, queer theory, disability studies, and ecocriticism, to advance community engagement pedagogies and practices.
