CfP (Edited Volume): Diversity & Decolonialization in German Studies
For the Spring 2018 issue of Boyhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal (Volume 11), the editors invite critical contributions to theories of “boyhoods”, “male development”, and “young masculinities”. These various monikers already advertise divergent angles and frames of approaching, circumscribing, and capturing boys’ lives in theory.

We are pleased to announce the completion of Digitizing American Feminisms (americanfeminisms.org), a five-year initiative sponsored and funded by Oberlin College with support from the ‘Digital Collections: From Projects to Pedagogy and Scholarship’ grant, awarded to the Five Colleges of Ohio by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation .
The current Special Issue provides a focal point for presenting authoritative references, academically rigorous research, and case studies in both theoretical and applied research.
Its purpose is to discuss the effective management in state-of-the-art innovative distance learning.
Papers addressing the difficulties of students for whom academia is foreign, considered in terms of the student’s alienation, psychological unpreparedness, underdeveloped perspective, etc. How can such students be incorporated into academia, and thereby into work (and life broadly) made accessible by education? Alternatively, should we seek such incorporation, or instead reimagine and change academia, and how? Institutions have implemented a variety of assimilation and retention strategies, some with better records than others.
