Joe Curnow and Susan Jurow to edit next special JLS issue

In November we invited proposals for a special issue, to be published in early 2021. After reviews by the editors and associate editors of 7 proposals, we have selected: “Learning In and For Collective Social Action”, to be edited by Joe Curnow (University of Manitoba) and Susan Jurow (University of Colorado). This proposal responds to a growing interest to politics, ethics and social justice in the field. We are excited about this proposal and look forward to working with the guest editors on it. Expect to see an open call for abstracts from the guest editors soon.
