Call for Papers : “Pedagogies: What We Share” 

Submissions due: 9/30/18

Guest Editor: Rosanne F. Denhard, Ph.D., Professor of English

Teaching is profoundly creative and collaborative. Across disciplines, and across perspectives, methods, and philosophies, one constant is that sharing is at the heart of pedagogy. We share with our students, our colleagues, and the wider world. In this time of change and possibility, we welcome your contributions exploring how and what you share through your teaching, including: re-visioning pedagogies in relation to the needs of new generations of students; experimental and experiential pedagogies (including performance, undergraduate research, and travel learning); and how we nurture and inspire our own pedagogical practices and philosophies and those of future educators. Like all The Mind’s Eye issues, this one is open to myriad forms: poetry, fiction, science fiction, essay musings, artistic works, photojournalism, case studies and more formal academic research/papers. This issue will present work by MCLA community members sharing multiple narratives from diverse pedagogical perspectives. As guest editor, I imagine contributions that will coalesce to create a rich, complex picture of who we are as educators as we cultivate and share our engagement with the many facets of pedagogy.

Submission Guidelines

The Mind’s Eye is a peer-reviewed journal of the Massachusetts College of the Liberal Arts that publishes scholarly and creative work. While emphasizing articles of scholarly merit, the journal focuses on the general communication of ideas of interest to liberal arts.

The Mind’s Eye transitioned from a printed journal to an online journal in 2017. We are very excited about this new format and look forward to showcasing the wide range of work that our colleagues are exploring. We will aim to publish a new “issue” at the end of each semester.

Submit unpublished material as an email attachment in .docx (Microsoft Word) format. Please use MLA style for endnotes. While we will consider articles of unspecified length, preference is given to manuscripts of fewer than 20 pages. In addition to commentaries and studies, we will consider other formats, including fiction, poetry, book reviews, interviews, cartoons, drawings and photography.
