Review of Education, Pedagogy and Cultural Studies

Deadline: January 3, 2020

Special Issue:

Visual Studies in Education: Ethics and Pedagogy Beyond Data Collection

The Review of Education, Pedagogy, and Cultural Studies is seeking articles for its Summer 2020 issue, “Visual Studies in Education: Ethics and Pedagogy Beyond Data Collection.” Visual Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study that seeks to understand the role of visuality in modern social life. The conversation around ethics within visual studies is also evolving, yet often stops at data collection. This themed issue plans to unpack and complicate ethics in visual studies within education. Specifically, this issue aims to creatively explore how the visual culture of schools, pedagogy, and learning can leverage the power of visual work without compromising the privacy, protection, and agency of young people and communities.

Articles may consider the following questions around visual ethics in education and with stakeholders (e.g. students, parents, community members, teachers, administrators, and the like):

  • How do we ethically integrate stakeholders into the visual research process, while providing spaces for power negotiations?
  • What are the ethical issues involved in using stakeholders’ faces in visual work?
  • Where do we see stakeholders’ agency surface in the research process beyond data collection?
  • How can researchers honor stakeholders’ agency and self-representation in educational spaces, while navigating the tensions inherent in our institutional ethical standards and human protections practices?

These questions suggest topic areas but are not exhaustive. We encourage submissions not only from scholars and researchers, but also from students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members.

Submissions should not exceed 9,000 words, including all references and back matter to the article.  We seek previously unpublished materials. For full author instructions, please visit the journal website.
