Summer 2012: Call for Papers: Globalization and Global Trends in Christian Higher Education
The editors of the Christian Scholar's Review invite submissions for a theme issue, “Globalization and Global Trends in Christian Higher Education,” which is scheduled for publication in Summer, 2012. Janel M. Curry and Joel Carpenter of Calvin College are guest editors.
Christian higher education has a rich heritage in the United States. Often this experience is not easily understood by Christian communities outside North America who assume that Christian higher education is synonymous with Bible colleges or seminaries. Likewise, many parts of the world are experiencing great growth in new, private institutions of higher education grounded in strong faith-commitments, yet those of us in North America have little knowledge of the context and shape that these institutions are taking. This issue proposes to broaden our understanding of the contexts, forms, and challenges to faith-based higher education around the world.
Proposed manuscripts are encouraged to address one or more of the following themes:
Discussion on the appropriateness of manuscript topics with the guest editors is recommended and encouraged through e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2011.
