Call for Submissions

Catalyst: A Social Justice Forum is pleased to announce a call for submissions for a 2016 themed issue:

Social Justice in STEM Education

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) field has been greatly promoted as a career path for students in recent years, and the demand for individuals specializing in STEM disciplines is expected to rise. One unique aspect of STEM is its role in helping to improve our well-being as individuals and society as a whole, not only through improvements in fields such as technology and medicine, but also as a tool for promoting social justice in the classroom, workplace, and beyond.

This issue of Catalyst aims to present a collection of works that examines the role of STEM education in promoting social justice not only in the PK-12 classroom, but also in the college classroom, pre-service educator training, and in-service teacher training. Qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, and theoretical papers are all welcome for review. Submissions should follow APA guidelines.

Submissions are due by January 16, 2016.

Please contact the guest editor at cscott1@coastal.edu with questions.
