Full call, followed by submission guidelines and review process:

The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (JITP) seeks scholarly
(especially creative and experimental) work that contributes to or is
informed by the liberatory pedagogical legacy of bell hooks. Paying special
attention to texts like Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice
of Freedom (1994) and Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope (2003), this
special themed issue explores how collaborative, community-centered, and/or
multimodal engagements with technology—as informed by hooks’s work—can
transform frameworks and outcomes for instruction, as well open up new
shared spaces for learning.

Drawing on hooks’s radical, inclusive, disruptive, and recuperative
legacy—and the scholars informed by it—this issue will highlight the use of
digital technology in teaching, educational organizing, and anti-oppressive
praxes within, alongside, and beyond academia. We ask: What kinds of
embodied and communal interactions are enabled by teaching with technology?
How can we reconcile the inherent contradictions in a learning community
where technology functions at once as a tool for social justice and for
surveillance capitalism?

We are especially interested in the intersection of technologies and


   anti-colonial, anti-classist, anti-capitalist, anti-patriarchal

   Black liberatory, Black feminist, and socially just forms of teaching,
   learning, and community organizing.

Besides scholarly papers, the submissions can consist of audio or visual
presentations; interviews, dialogues, or conversations; and creative,
artistic, experimental, and multimodal engagements with hooks’s work.

A consideration of digital tools and technology in the context of hooks’s
pedagogical scholarship might address:


   engagements with open technology

   radical collaboration and/or creativity in the classroom and beyond

   systemic critiques of digital tools in teaching and learning

   the labor and care considerations of academic technology projects

   critical and community-centered teaching and learning frameworks

   the ethics and politics of publishing student and/or community-centered

   social justice pedagogies involving radical reimaginations of
   pedagogical structures and communities

   academic mentorship, advisement, and committee work

   theorizing praxis through lived experience

   technological infrastructures and the promise of radical co-liberation

Brief Guidelines for Submissions

Research-based submissions should include discussions of approach, method,
and analysis. When possible, research data should be made publicly
available and accessible via the Web and/or other digital mechanisms, a
process that JITP can and will support as necessary. Successes and
interesting failures are equally welcome. Submissions that focus on
pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical
considerations of how new technologies play out in both formal and informal
educational settings. Discipline-specific submissions should be written for

For further information on style and formatting, accessibility
requirements, and multimedia submissions, consult JITP’s accessibility
guidelines <https://jitp.commons.gc.cuny.edu/submit/#accessibility>, style

submission guidelines

Submission and Review Process

All work appearing in the Issues section of JITP is reviewed by the issue
editors and independently by two scholars in the field, who provide
formative feedback to the author(s) during the review process. We practice
signed, as opposed to anonymous or so-called “blind,” peer review. We
intend that the journal itself—both in our process and in our digital
product—serves as an opportunity to reveal, reflect on, and revise academic
publication and classroom practices.

As a courtesy to our reviewers, we will not consider simultaneous
submissions, but we will do our best to reply to you within three months of
the submission deadline. The expected length for finished manuscripts is
under 5,000 words or an equivalent length or scope for timed or other forms
of media (e.g. roughly 20–25 minutes of dialogue, 45 minutes of a spoken
presentation, etc.). Both text-based and multimedia should be prepared to
undergo review for their relationship to scholarly and related
conversations, as well as be amenable to revision. All work should be
original and previously unpublished. Essays or presentations posted on a
personal blog may be accepted, provided they are substantially revised;
please contact us with questions at admin at jitpedagogy.org.
