Invitation to submit to an edited collection

An edited blind peer reviewed collection of “Changing Subjects, Changing Pedagogies: Diversities in School and Education” will be developed from a selection of NoFa5 conference papers.

“Changing Subjects, Changing Pedagogies: Diversities in School and Education” will appeal to upper-level undergraduates, postgraduates and academics working with subject didactics and diversities. It will also appeal to policy-makers and professionals, teachers and those studying for a qualification in education. Each chapter of the book will end with implications for research, policy-making and teaching practice.

To join, we invite you to submit a synopsis of your paper (9000 characters + references) by June 26th 2015 via this link: The synopsis should include the following information: aims of the paper, introduction with key literature, methods, results and discussion with implications for research, policy and practice. In order to strengthen the scope of the collection, we ask writers to strictly keep within the frame of subject pedagogy and diversities. Each writer is responsible for the language checking and revisions of their chapter. References should follow the Chicago Manual of Style. Please use the provided word template for your synopsis.
