Call for proposals: 2018 Peter Lang Young Scholars Competition in Education Studies

Peter Lang Oxford is delighted to announce the 2018 Peter Lang Young Scholars Competition in Education Studies.

Proposals are invited from early career scholars ­in Education Studies for academic monographs to be evaluated by a distinguished editorial board. The winner of the competition will receive a contract to publish the volume in the book series New Disciplinary Perspectives on Education.

This series supports emergent work on education that combines emphases on theory and activism, focusing on challenges to recent developments in education policy arising from the marketisation and commodification of education and educational institutions. In particular, the series welcomes work that does not simply critique these developments, but marks out a space for new and alternative educational practice. This work might focus on university education, further education or school institutions at primary or secondary level.

Proposals for the Education Studies competition should be submitted to oxford@peterlang.com by 31 August 2018 and include an abstract (including chapter synopses), CV and a sample chapter (5,000 to 10,000 words in length) in separate Microsoft Word documents. Proposals under review elsewhere should not be submitted.

The winner will be offered a contract for a non-subsidised book to be published within six months of receipt of the complete and approved manuscript. Planned manuscripts should be 60,000 to 100,000 words in length. Authors will be expected to copy-edit the manuscript in accordance with the style guidelines provided.

Applicants should be early career scholars with connections to the UK or Ireland:

  • They should have been awarded a PhD between 2013 and 2018 or expect to be awarded a PhD in 2019.
  • They should be resident in the UK or Ireland, or hold British or Irish citizenship or resident status, or have completed some or all of their postgraduate education at a British or Irish university.

Decisions will be made by 1 December 2018 and the winner will be notified shortly thereafter.

For general information about the competition, please contact Peter Lang Ltd, 52 St Giles, Oxford OX1 3LU. E-mail: oxford@peterlang.com. Tel: 01865 514160.
