*InterActions: UCLA Journal of Education and Information Studies

* Call for Papers 2009-2010***

*InterActions** *is a peer-reviewed on-line journal committed to the
promotion of interdisciplinary and critical scholarship.  Edited by students
in the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, the
journal brings together senior and emerging scholars, activists, and
professionals whose work covers a broad range of theory and practice. *
InterActions *is published twice yearly with funding provided by the UCLA
Graduate Students Association and the UCLA Graduate School of Education &
Information Studies.

*Interdisciplinary Focus*

Current work in disciplines as diverse as legal theory, literary criticism,
design, and technology studies exercises a profound impact on educational
and information studies research. At the same time, the traditionally
separate sub-disciplines within our fields, such as sociology, curriculum,
policy, psychological studies, systems design, information literacy, and
digital preservation are being connected by researchers in new and
innovative ways.  Education and information increasingly serve as the common
ground where the social sciences and the humanities can meet. *InterActions
*provides a forum for these interdisciplinary encounters.

*Critical Perspectives *

At the start of the 21st century, both education and the management of
information have become highly visible subjects of public debate. Scholars
are challenging traditional approaches and suggesting new directions for
research into the purposes, practices, and organization of education and
information institutions at all levels.* InterActions** *offers a timely and
reasoned contribution to these debates by providing critical commentary on
current issues and promoting perspectives in educational and information
systems that can serve the cause of social justice.

*Aims and Scope*

InterActions seeks to promote alternative and liberatory visions,
methodologies and practices.  We are particularly interested in work that
analyzes inequities and links research to larger social and political
contexts, and we encourage contributions that utilize critical frameworks in
provocative and politically engaged ways.

Submissions may draw from traditional areas of inquiry within the fields of
education and information studies or from newer interdisciplinary
perspectives such as women’s studies, science and technology studies, ethnic
and cultural studies, film studies, queer studies, disability studies,
critical race theory, postcolonial theory, critical pedagogy,
postructuralism, etc.  We encourage authors to think creatively about what
constitutes a “critical approach” and to advance fresh and progressive
analyses and research.

*Submissions Guidelines*

InterActions encourages practitioners, activists, and both established and
emerging scholars to submit manuscripts throughout the year.  Authors retain
the copyright to material they publish in InterActions, but the journal
cannot re-publish material that has previously been published elsewhere and
does not accept papers that are simultaneously submitted to other journals.

We welcome:

·          *Articles* (not to exceed 30 pages)

·          *Review essays* (10-20 pages)

·          *Interviews* (10-20 pages)

·          *Book reviews* (not to exceed 1100 words)
