The September 2020 edition of the Journal of Museum Education seeks to explore how educators are changing how we think about authors and literature, through programming that invites participation and asks questions; challenging the cult of the author in favor of exploring how literature relates to our lives today. We invite proposals that raise critical questions through the lens of museum education and interpretation about the role of literary museums today.
Submit your article proposal by answering the questions below. Be clear and concise. The guest editor will review submissions with the support of the MER Editorial Team and if your proposal is of interest, we will contact you to discuss your article in greater depth.
Article proposals must be submitted via the online form by Monday, July 1, 2019.
If your article proposal is accepted and you agree to contribute, a draft of your 4,500-word article will be due on or before Monday, February 3, 2020 with the final version due for submission for peer review on Friday, April 3, 2020. All articles will undergo the standard double-blind peer review process, meaning you will not know who reviewed your work and reviewers will not know who wrote the article. Reviewers recommend publication, revision, or rejection of an article.
Feel free to contact the JME editors at JMuseEd@gmail.com with questions. Learn more about the Journal of Museum Education and the Call for Article Proposals at www.museumedu.org/journal/submission-guidelines
