Peter Lang Oxford is delighted to announce the 2021 Peter Lang Young Scholars Competition in Education Studies.
Proposals are invited from early career scholars for academic monographs in the area of Education Studies to be evaluated by a distinguished editorial board. This Young Scholars Competition develops from the platform of the established New Disciplinary Perspectives in Education series. The series looks to support new and groundbreaking work in the disciplines of Education (History, Philosophy, Psychology and Sociology) which addresses the current socio-economic and political crises of our times as they specifically relate to education, schooling and pedagogy. We are particularly interested in voices from the Global South, or studies exploring issues of gender, class, sexuality, disability or race. The competition will support at least one new text to publication and is looking for engaged educational work which combines theoretical and practical-empirical analyses. The series is inspired by the radical educational philosophy of Paulo Freire and the Critical Pedagogy tradition of thought but also welcomes alternative approaches to progressive pedagogy across our current educational practices.
Proposals for the competition should be submitted to Tony Mason (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 31 July 2021 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.
Applicants should be early career scholars who have been awarded a PhD between 2015 and 2020 or expect to be awarded a PhD in 2021.
Decisions will be made by 30 September 2021 and the winner will be notified shortly thereafter.
