Call for Book Reviews
Aims and Scope: Educational Studies, as the official journal of the American Educational Studies Association (AESA), invites submissions relevant to AESA and the disciplines of social and educational foundations. AESA was established in 1968 as an international learned society for scholars, researchers, teacher educators, students, teachers, and administrators who are interested in social and educational foundations, both in and outside of schools. The organization has attracted scholars who engage within the disciplines of anthropology, economics, history, philosophy, politics, and sociology of education, as well as race/ethnic, gender, queer, cultural, comparative, and transnational studies. Educational Studies provides a cross-disciplinary forum for the exchange and debate of ideas generated from the above-mentioned fields of study. In addition to research articles, the journal invites submissions of reviews of books, films/documentaries, arts, and new media; essays dealing with pedagogical issues in social and educational foundations courses; and other creative works relevant to social and educational foundations scholarship.
