The Journal of Homosexualityinvites submissions for a special issue regarding Queering Education: Serving LGBTIQQ Students in P-12 Schools. Anticipated publication date for the special issue is 2012/2013. The purpose of this special issue is to call the diverse fields within education to consider new and innovative ways to address lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning (LGBTIQQ) students’ experiences and concerns within the P-12 educational system. Specifically, the special issue seeks to represent interdisciplinary perspectives of established scholars and new voices across teacher and other school personnel professions, including but not limited to the disciplines of teacher and educational leadership, school counselor and other school-based mental health, as well as fields related to the development and implementation of school policy, systemic transformation, and student advocacy.
The guest editors of this special issue invite 1500-2000 word proposals that include an abstract and keywords, in accordance with the 6th edition of APA style. Proposals should focus on research, theory, or practice-based topics related to the education of LGBTIQQ students from early childhood through high school. The special issue guest editors seek to balance the perspectives of scholars, students, community-based organizers, and activists, as well as encourage collaborative authorship across academics, practitioners, and policy-makers. Authors are encouraged to submit proposals that specifically attend to: a) the intersection of multiple socially constructed identities, b) discuss the tensions between risk factors and resilience, c) incorporate the role of heterosexual allies, peers, or family, as well as d) consider ecological or systems-based conceptualizations or interventions. The deadline for proposal submission is July 30, 2011.
All submitted proposals will undergo a peer-review process and therefore acceptance is not guaranteed. Submissions must be original and not previously published. Authors will be notified of proposal dispositions by October 31, 2011.
If a proposal is selected to move forward, a full manuscript with a maximum length of 20 double-spaced pages will be due by December 31, 2011. Subsequent anonymous, peer-reviews, and author revisions according to reviewer feedback will occur in 90-day cycles. Due to the publication schedule, no extensions will be provided at any point in the process. The deadline for proposal submission is July 30, 2011. Please submit an electronic copy of your proposal to both Dr. Kristopher M. Goodrich at email@example.com and Dr. Melissa Luke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to receiving your proposal!
