Call for Articles

The editors would like to invite authors to submit innovative articles dealing with the production, content and reception of educational media. The Journal of Educational Media, Memory, and Society (Berghahn Journals) explores perceptions of society as constituted and conveyed in processes of learning and educational media. The focus is on various types of texts (e.g. textbooks, museums, memorials, films) and their institutional, political, social, economic, and cultural contexts. The construction of collective memory and conceptions of space, the production of meaning, image formation, forms of representation, and perceptions of the “self” and the “other”, as well as processes of identity construction (e.g. ethnic, national, regional, religious, institutional, gender) are of particular interest. Special importance is given to the significance of educational media for social cohesion and conflict. The journal is international and interdisciplinary. It welcomes contributions from the humanities and the social sciences as well as theoretical and methodological studies.

Contributions should be no longer than 7,000 words and prefaced by a 100 word abstract.
