Learning, Media and Technology

Call for papers - special issue

Media and migration: learning in a globalized world

Learning, Media and Technology is acknowledged as one of the learning academic journals in the fields of educational technology and educational media. Proposals are invited for papers for a special issue of the journal on the theme of "Media and migration: learning in a globalized world". The special issue will be edited by Mariëtte de Haan (Utrecht University) and Kevin Leander (Vanderbilt University).

This special issue will bring together studies located at the intersection of migration, media and learning. The change in the mobilities of people, media, material goods that allow new connections between 'global' and 'local' life marks contemporary migration as well as social life more generally. >From the perspective of how young people's lives are formed and develop, these developments provide differently distributed resources from which youth can draw, and different processes through which identities, social networks, and knowledge may be constructed. In this issue research is brought together that considers how learning practices of youth in migration are shaped by new media.

Hope some of this community will contribute!
