Vol. 3 No. 2 "Globally Engaged Scholarship and Creative Practice"

Submissions will be accepted between 1/15/15 - 2/1/15. 
Information is available at

We invite submissions that consider resonances and differences between public scholarship and practice foregrounding civically engaged arts, humanities, and design in one's home country and when working elsewhere.

Some of the questions to consider include:

  • In what discourses and for what purposes are the principles of what we in Imagining America call 'engaged' research, student learning, and creative practice being enacted in sites across the globe?
  • In what contexts do you see your international engaged initiatives? What antecedents inform you? What are the gaps or pitfalls between scholarship and practice?
  • How can/do/should we shift our pedagogical approaches when involving students in international engaged work? What do we want our students to learn related to the international context?
  • What are ways to build and sustain relationships with international partners in arts, humanities, and design endeavors?

We welcome the following formats, linked to the theme of the issue: Principles and Practices (critical pieces in any or multiple media, single or collaboratively authored, narrative or interview format); Case Studies and Resources (innovative research methods, syllabi, assignments, et cetera, at any level); and Proposals for Reviews (of relevant books and cultural events).

Public is contextualized by IA's vision: publicly engaged artists, designers, scholars, and others, in and out of the academy, enriching civic life for all.We request the integration of the arts, humanities, or design in submissions and welcome contributors from academic, cultural, or community contexts.
