JOURNAL OF INTERACTIVE LEARNING RESEARCH

A journal of the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE)

Scope and Author Guidelines

The Journal of Interactive Learning Research (JILR) (formerly the Journal of AI in Education) seeks papers related to the underlying theory, design, implementation, effectiveness, and impact of interactive learning environments in education and training.

JILR is a refereed academic journal published quarterly in paper form by the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE), an international professional organization.

Types of interactive learning environments that could be involved in research reported in JILR include:

In terms of structure, most JILR papers will identify a learning problem, clarify the kinds of learning opportunities which a given environment or system is intended to provide, describe its implementation, and if appropriate to give some evidence of effectiveness and impact.

Kinds of papers encouraged:

  • Description of a learning environment
  • Theoretical study
  • Experimental study
  • Literature review
  • Methodological study
  • Viewpoint JILR is intended to be a "going concern" rather than a staid archive of "old news." We intend to publish many special issues (see the next special issue-"Concept Mapping") with controversial positions and responsible critiques. Through an "Alternative Interpretations" section and the JILR Web site, we hope to encourage an interactive dialogue that will influence the field as a whole.

    This is an ambitious agenda, but with the caliber of people involved in this field around the globe, it is one that we can surely accomplish. We welcome your participation.


    _FEMINIST TEACHER_ IS LOOKING FOR CONTRIBUTORS

    How do you teach about sexism, racism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression? Have you developed lesson plans or courses dealing with AIDS, human rights, anti-Semitism, peace and justice, violence against women, world politics, imperialism, or the environment from a feminist perspective?

    _Feminist Teacher_ seeks essays, articles, course descriptions, bibliographies, and letters-to-the collective describing how educators address these and other issues in the classroom. _Feminist Teacher_ is committed to publishing articles that challenge traditional teaching practices, disciplinary canons, research methodologies, and approaches to daily classroom interactions. The journal also seeks reviews of books, periodicals, and videos that address pedagogical issues from a feminist perspective.

    _Feminist Teacher_, published three times a year, reaches educators in a variety of disciplines and at all grade levels -- preschool through graduate school, in traditional as well as nontraditional classroom settings. We ask authors to keep the diversity of this audience in mind and to avoid technical or abstract language. To make syllabi as useful and accessible as possible to readers, we ask that contributors include full citations of all texts as well as a brief introduction to clarify the background, primary concerns, or other important aspects of the class or material.

    Manuscripts submitted to _Feminist Teacher_ should be sent in triplicate, with the author's name, address, and institutional affiliation on the cover page only (i.e., do not put your name on any text pages). Manuscripts should follow the form specified in our "Guidelines for Authors" (available upon request), and be accompanied by a return envelope and return postage. The "Guidelines for Authors" is generally consistent with the MLA Handbook and/or the MLA Style Book (4th Edition).

    _SAGETRIEB_ SPECIAL ISSUE, AMERICAN WOMEN POETS OF THE 1950S

    For a special issue on American (N. America/ US) women poets of the 1950s, Sagetrieb invites proposals for essays of up to thirty-five pages. These essays should focus on women poets writing in the 1950s and seek to extend considerations of these poets beyond their work in this decade. Part of the goal of this special issue is to reconsider and recuperate poets who have traditionally been studied in isolation, either from other poets or from twentieth-century poetic lineages, and to anchor their work more firmly in critical considerations of American poetry. Thus, examinations that forge connections between women poets of the fifties and contemporary women poets are particularly welcome, as are essays which reconceive women poets of the fifties within contexts alternative to traditional considerations of their work.

    PROPOSALS SHOULD BE POSTMARKED BY JANUARY 1, 1998. Inquiries welcome and should be directed to

    >>> NEW CULTURAL THEORY & TECHNO-POLITICS <<<
    (Angelaki 4.2)

    Edited collection for publication winter 1998/99

    What *is* technology? What are its political dimensions? What is the significance of techno-politics and the so-called "new" cultural theories being advanced in response to the emergence of the "virtual," or, "cyber-society"? What are the implications of new information and communications technologies like Virtual Reality and the Internet for contemporary political theory and practice? What consequences are there for the state, social relations, authority, the acquisition of power and civil society? Do the newly developing cultural theories of technology and politics really provide a secure foundation for the construction of new ethical values or do they merely recycle old ones?...

    This edition of Angelaki will focus on the growing interest in techno-politics and the new cultural theories and practices being developed by researchers and activists in political science, philosophy, literature and cultural studies. It will incorporate discussions of the relationship between new information and communications technologies, virtual, or, cyber-politics and contemporary cultural theory. The editor invites contributions which address the technological nature, political importance and cultural development of: cybernetic capitalism, Virtual Reality, the Internet, virtual class warfare, cloning, posthumanism, cyborgs, cyberfeminism, speed, cyberspace, Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZs), cyberwar, cybernetic art, literature, cinema and popular culture.

    The issue aims to present a *critical* exploration of techno-politics and also to position it within the broader context of cultural theoretical approaches derived from: Autonomous Marxism, Poststructuralism, Anarchism, Situationism and Postmodernism. It is hoped that such a publication will make a core contribution to these and related perspectives on technology, politics and cultural theory. Not the least of the difficulties confronting such a project is the fact that the technology at issue itself destabilises the approaches and disciplines that have tried to work on and through it. _New Cultural Theory & Techno-Politics_ will not take any academic or political categories for granted and will open itself up to any critical engagement.

    This is the only journal issue (so far) to consider techno-politics and its importance for cultural theory. It is anticipated that it will provide a wide variety of essays, review articles and interviews for the benefit of cultural and political theorists, activists and others working in the humanities, social sciences and the arts.

    Essays, review articles, interviews, proposals and requests for further information should be addressed to the editor:

    EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY WOMEN: STUDIES IN THEIR WORKS, LIVES, AND CULTURE

    Linda Veronika Troost, Editor

    EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY WOMEN: STUDIES IN THEIR WORKS, LIVES, AND CULTURE will publish notes, articles, and book reviews in the fields of literary, biographical, bibliographical, social, and cultural history. It will focus on women in Great Britain, Europe, the Americas, and the rest of the world during the "long" eighteenth century, extending roughly from the restoration of the English monarchy (1660) to the fall of Napoleon (1815).

    The journal aims to become a record of women's lives and accomplishments, not only as essayists, novelists, playwrights, poets, translators, pamphleteers, letter-writers, and journalists, but also as mothers, wives, daughters, queens, princesses, reformers, business owners, educators, socialites, ladies of the manor, ladies of the night, intellectuals, natural philosophers, travelers, theater managers, actresses, musicians, artists, artisans, consumers, arbiters of taste, and promoters of fads, fashions, and morals.

    In addition to notes and articles, each volume will print an annotated list of newly edited works by 18th-century women (anthologies, classroom texts, critical editions) as well as several in-depth reviews of recent scholarship.

    The annual is aimed at advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professional scholars in literature and history as well as the lay person interested in the growing fields of women's studies and cultural studies in the late 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries.

    Original scholarly work may be submitted for two categories: notes (1,000-2,000 words) and essays (5,000-13,000 words). Send one double-spaced copy in (preferably) MLA style to:

    Prof. Linda Veronika Troost
    Editor, EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY WOMEN
    Washington and Jefferson College
    Washington, PA 15301-4801

    New Approaches to Passing as a Cultural Phenomenon

    "Passing for white" dominates most discussions of passing, but this figuration is proving itself to be increasingly narrow and inadequate to discussions of identity formation. Hence the essays in this volume will question and expand traditional historical constructions of passing in twentieth-century North America. Essays exploring the dynamics of passing that expand the traditional black/white construction are solicited. Possible topics include but are not limited to: passing as straight or gay, passing as a non-white, passing as a citizen or foreigner, and so on.

    Essays with a theoretical bent or framework are particularly welcome. Approaches may range from the literary to the sociological, political, and/or anthropological. Submissions should be 15-25 pages in length (MLA format) and should be made in triplicate (no electronic submissions please) to

    Dr. E. Barnsley Brown
    Department of English
    Box 7387 Reynolda Station
    Wake Forest University
    Winston-Salem, NC 27109-7387.

    The deadline for submissions is February 8th, 1998; however, earlier submissions are encouraged. Queries may be directed to E. Barnsley Brown at browneb@wfu.edu or Adam Mckibble at adamckib@email.unc.edu. Scholars from a variety of disciplines will be represented in this project.


    *Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal*

    Special Issue, "Virginia Woolf in Performance"

    Deadline: February 15, 1998

    Recent criticism of Virginia Woolf points up the challenge she poses to literary and social historicism: although intensely interested in history, she uses sources selectively for aims that vary according to her purpose and audience. That is, her works across all genres are rhetorical, often dialogical *performances.*

    *Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal* is planning a special issue to be called "Virginia Woolf in Performance." Invited for consideration are essays dealing with Woolf "in performance" broadly defined. In addition to issues of textual performance suggested above (including negotiations of gender and sexuality), topics might include multimedia, film, or live performances of Woolf's work; photo-essays and other creative responses are welcome. Another possibility is the issue of Woolf's own continued ability to perform: what will she sound like in a few years when she becomes a writer of the previous century? What are the difficulties and pleasures of keeping her voice alive?

    Essays should be 20-25 pages in length. Deadline for sending completed submissions is (postmarked) February 15, 1998. Please send to guest editor

    Sally Greene
    406 Morgan Creek Rd.
    Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA 27514

    SIZE MATTERS: The Film Screen in Public and Private Exhibition
    Editor: Alison Trope

    While revisionist writing on film exhibition has significantly incorporated an industrial economic paradigm, these studies do not always account for the wider context of film exhibition that exists outside the average commercial theater. With new developments in cultural studies and reception theory as well as current theories on popular geographies, virtual spaces and new technologies, the scope of exhibition studies can be reconfigured along original and more comprehensive lines. This issue will re-examine the history as well as the future of exhibition within two distinct, yet interrelated spaces: the public and the private (or domestic) exhibition sphere.

    Possible essay topics include:

  • Public Exhibition Spaces: the drive-in * big screen and technological experimentation * the revival, repertory house * the film society * the film festival * museum or archive exhibition * avant-garde, political activist exhibition and independent outlets * the sports venue, the concert venue * the theme park, public fair, expo * pedagogical and propaganda films
  • Private Exhibition Spaces: home theater systems * home movies, home video * film on cable TV * film on publicTV * film on network TV * film on CD ROM, DVD, etc. * film on the Internet Please submit a 12-25 page, double spaced manuscript in Chicago endnote style to:

    Performance Practice

    Submissions are invited for Issues 3 and 4 of 'Performance Practice', a peer-reviewed journal, which deals with the processes of making creative practical work for and with students. Papers concerned with interdisciplinary investigations, mixed-media presentations and/or installations are as appropriate to the philosophical 'brief' of 'Performance Practice' as are more ostensibly conventional productions.

    The policy of 'Performance Practice' is to recognise diverse forms of documentation in much the same way that one would seek to encourage a variety of directorial methodologies. The concern of the recently appointed Editorial Board is that the journal foregrounds a concentration on performance as an event which is always distinct from the 'dramatic text' of literary discourse.

    'Performance Practice' Is perhaps most usefully described as one aspect of the production-process; an aspect that always strives to be more provocative than prescriptive and which allows the creative event a resonance beyond its immediate, original audience.

    Authors submitting material for inclusion retain copyright of their work. Submitted articles are sent 'blind' to appropriate members of the board for approval and/or comments. Authors of accepted articles will be invited to submit a brief synopsis of their careers and research Interests to date. 'Performance Practice' has a commitment to the retainment of the author's voice; as such, only those sections of text which are considered to impede the reader's understanding will be subject to editorial alteration. The editorial team will endeavour to check any amendments with authors prior to publication. wherever possible, articles should be submitted in Word 6, on HD PC disks and printed version to

    John Freeman
    'Performance Practice'
    University College Chester
    Cheyney Rd
    Chester CHI 4BJ UK.

    Alternatively. material can be faxed on 01244 373379 or e-mailed to jfreeman@chester.ac.uk

    Numbers 1 and 2, alongside all future Issues of 'Performance Practice', are available online here or here. Copies in magazine format are available by subscription.

The REVIEW publishes in French, German, and Spanish, as well as in English. Authors must be members of RMMLA, but since the Rocky Mountain region seems to be more a state of mind than a geographic location, we have many members from flatter and wetter lands.

    We use double-blind reviewing and usually have a decision in 2-4 months. Our acceptance rate is about 1 in 7. Send two copies of essays, using MLA style, and return postage if you wish the manuscripts returned.
