CfP Special Issue on Academic Citizenship

Dear all,

Please find below the call for papers for a special issue on Academic Citizenship of the Journal of Praxis in Higher Education.

I hope this will be of interest to several of you.

Best wishes, Serge Horbach

Call for papers: Special Issue "What is academic citizenship?"

Academics and wider publics alike highlight the conflicting and often frustrating demands that are levelled against the university academic: be engaged in society, be truth-seeking and objective, be problem-solving, be innovative and entrepreneurial, be independent, and contribute!

With this special issue, we aim to create a collection of thought-provoking essays about where these complexities leave the figure of 'the academic citizen' and about which futures can be imagined for academic citizenship. This implies many additional questions, such as who qualifies as an academic citizen, what society one is a citizen of, and how the notions of 'academic', 'society' and 'citizens' relate. We welcome contributions that inquire into the future(s) of academic citizenship in a university which will not go back to what it was in an often-idealised past. We hope for a number of short academic essays of max. 3000 words; thought-provoking pieces which pointedly discuss important problems of academic citizenship, or new ideas for academic citizenship. The essays are stylistically freer than an academic article and references should be kept to a minimum of 10-15.

Visit the journal's website to read the full announcement.

Serge P.J.M. Horbach
