CFP: Community Literacy Journal Call for Reviews

CFP: Community Literacy Journal Call for Reviews

The peer-reviewed Community Literacy Journal seeks book and/or multimedia reviews for our inaugural, Fall 2006, issue. We are soliciting reviews of books and/or multimedia, along with book/ multimedia suggestions for review, that address any social, cultural, rhetorical, or institutional aspects of community literacy.

We invite you to submit reviews that you feel should be included in our budding conversation about literacy work that exists outside mainstream educational and work institutions. It can be found in institutionalized programs devoted to adult education or lifelong learning or work with marginalized populations, but it can also be found in more informal, ad hoc projects.

One goal of the journal, and of the review section in particular, is to extend and expand beyond conventional book reviews to include more visual and digital representations. By multimedia, we mean: digital film, DVD, website, or other visual representations of communities where literacy issues may be represented, discussed, displayed (just to name a few examples).

Reviewers should include in their e-mail the following contact
Reviewer's full name
Reviewer's title
Institutional address
Telephone number
Fax number
E-mail address
Book/Multimedia title
Author’s name
Publication information, including: date, location, and publisher

Book/Multimedia Review contributions should be 500-750 words in length, but longer submissions will be accepted for reviews that incorporate multiple titles.

Deadline: For Fall 2006 edition -- March 15, 2006
Format: MLA citation and endnote style

To submit reviews, suggestions for reviews, or request further
information, send a message to the Book/Multimedia Review Editor
Sarah A. Truax, Michigan Technological University

Please submit all reviews as either a Word document or .rtf file and
as the e-mail’s subject put “Community Literacy - Review submission”
