Special issue for 2023: Designing for racial equity through speculative education

In October 2020, the Journal of the Learning Sciences released a call for proposals to publish a special issue in 2023. Our editorial team has carefully reviewed the proposals received, and selected a proposal on designing for racial equity through speculative education, to be edited by Antero Garcia and Nicole Mirra.

This special issue aims to bring together multiple disciplinary perspectives and innovative methodological approaches to advance learning theory, practice, and research inspired by speculative theory, guided by a commitment to generative, justice-oriented world-building. Multigenerational and international author teams are particularly encouraged to submit. 500-word abstracts are due June 1st, 2021.
