Call for Papers: Ethnicity, Race, Gender, Class, and Youth Development
Teachers College Record announces a call for papers for a special issue on
Ethnicity, Race, Gender, Class, and Youth Development edited by Jean Anyon,
Ratna Ghosh, and Roslyn Arlin Mickelson. This issue will feature papers
reporting on original research regarding the development of youth,
particularly in urban contexts. As urban youth develop, they create
meaning, identity, and a sense of themselves in the world by utilizing a
variety of sources, including, perhaps most centrally, existing social
constructions of ethnicity, race, gender, and social class. By what methods
do youth create these meanings? How do they attain a sense of the future
and its opportunities or hazards that leads them to appropriate elements of
the environment in ways that are either positive or self-destructive? How
do they define these and other options? What strategies do they employ to
deal with poverty, racial, gender, or other discrimination and the disdain
of dominant groups in society? What qualities of their communities and
neighborhoods do they utilize as they grow? How do they negotiate the often
rough terrains of school, the streets, or incarceration? Finally, how do
urban youth develop a critical account of their societies, and how do they,
or can they, move from cynicism or alienation to an informed resistance to
The editors are interested in all of these and other questions about the
development of urban youth. Manuscripts that are submitted should engage
these or other important issues. The scholarship must employ more than one
of the following: original empirical research (qualitative and/or
quantitative), sophisticated theorizing, political economy, comparative
study, or historical analysis.
Manuscripts should be submitted using the TCR online submission system.
Indicate that the paper is for the special issue on youth development.
Review of manuscripts will begin immediately and continue until May 1,

This wouldn't be a not-so-subtle way for you to suggest that some of us more longwinded folks more productively put our money where our didactic mouths are? Would it?
Thanks. I may actually toss a log into this fire.
