Special Volume on "Study Abroad and the City"
The majority of today's education abroad students will either study in a city or visit cities while learning abroad. Study in the city can provide rich learning opportunities for students from a variety of academic disciplines while also generating insights into cultural, artistic, scientific and other intellectual achievements of city dwellers. Further, cities can serve as living laboratories for the experiential and intercultural learning that are a critical part of learning abroad.
Frontiers seeks contributions to a special, thematically focused volume on "Study Abroad and the City." Manuscript submissions and proposals should analyze, examine and explore how institutions, individual faculty, and study abroad programs use cities to enrich student learning and help participants connect both intellectually and personally with host country environments and people. The volume will also consider how certain cities foster study abroad learning in distinctive ways that are unique to those locations.
Instructions for submissions: Both complete manuscripts and 1-2 page proposals will be considered. They should be submitted via email attachment in Microsoft Word to both Elizabeth Brewer and Michael Monahan, guest editors, at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Full manuscripts should be 5,000 to 6,000 words in length (including footnotes), follow MLA or APA style, include a one-paragraph abstract, and a short biography of author(s). They should include on the first page the name(s), affiliation(s) of author(s), and full contact addresses for correspondence, including e-mail.
Proposals should outline the intended approach of the article and its relevance to the volume. Proposals should include a short biography of author(s) and the name(s), affiliation(s) of author(s), and full contact addresses for correspondence, including e-mail. Authors of successful proposals will be invited to submit a full manuscript that will be due by January 1, 2010.
