The Association for Children's Literature in South Asia (ACLiSA) is currently soliciting entries for its upcoming blog series titled "Childhood Prets and other Premonitions" on the ghosts that populate South Asian childhoods, folklore, cultural memory and literature. We're looking for the spirits ('prets') of South Asia – the ghosts of childhoods past, if you will. The nightmares inside your heads, the monsters under your beds, zombies, chudails, bhoots that made up your bachpan. Stories that made you scream in fright or silently sent a shiver down your spine or made you pull the blanket close, eyes shut tight.

Contemporary Education Dialogue (CED), Sage Journals (ISSN: 09731849, 22495320), has launched a special section 'Teachers, Teaching and Teacher Education' and is looking for submissions of research articles (8000-9000 words) for this new section.

The deadline for the January 2023 issue is August 31, 2022.

 

This section aims to nurture scholarship on the practice and practitioners of education in India with methodologies and theoretical frameworks that further cultural, political, sociological, developmental, and historical understanding(s).

 

Some focus areas under the theme are:

 

1. Teacher and teaching-learning processes as related to critical pedagogy, fostering new methods of teaching-learning etc (inter-disciplinary frameworks are particularly welcome. Pedagogies can focus on school/higher education/other sites outside formal systems of learning as well)

2. The teacher and teacher education in policy and transnational discourses

3. ICT, technology and the teacher

4. COVID and its impact on teachers, teaching-learning and other related social, economic and political dimensions

5. Comparative studies on teachers, teaching and teacher education

6. Political economy of teacher education system(s)/institutions (economic studies, survey-based studies, reports)

7. Teacher professionalism, recruitment and career pathways

8. New Education Policy (NEP 2020) on teachers and teacher education

9. Historical/sociological studies around the teacher and teaching as a profession

10. Identity of the teacher and the politics of teaching-learning engagements (intersections of gender, caste, class, race, Adivasi, sexualities and other social identities/categories)

11. Technologies of governance: data, datafication and teachers

 

These are only some of the focus areas under the theme and the journal is open to other thematic ideas around teachers, teaching and teacher education as well that draw on interdisciplinary perspectives and use diverse methodological approaches.
