FRONTIERS: THE INTERDISCIPLINARY JOURNAL OF STUDY ABROAD
Call for Manuscripts and Proposals
Special Volume on “Study Abroad and the City”
The majority of today’s education abroad students will either study in a city or visit cities while learning abroad. Study in the city can provide rich learning opportunities for students from a variety of academic disciplines while also generating insights into cultural, artistic, scientific and other intellectual achievements of city dwellers. Further, cities can serve as living laboratories for the experiential and intercultural learning that are a critical part of learning abroad.
Frontiers seeks contributions to a special, thematically focused volume on “Study Abroad and the City.” Manuscript submissions and proposals should analyze, examine and explore how institutions, individual faculty, and study abroad programs use cities to enrich student learning and help participants connect both intellectually and personally with host country environments and people. The volume will also consider how certain cities foster study abroad learning in ways that are unique to those locations.
Submission deadline: June 1, 2009
Instructions for submissions: Both complete manuscripts and 1-2 page proposals will be considered. They should be submitted via email attachment as Microsoft Word documents to both Elizabeth Brewer and Michael Monahan, guest editors, at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
