The volume editors of the Oxford Handbook of Global South Youth Studies (forthcoming 2020), Sharlene Swartz, Adam Cooper, Clarence Batan and Rosa-Maria Camarena-Cordova, invite contributions and partnerships towards this important and exciting new project.
Contributors will predominately be from the Global South (working in either the North or South) or from the diaspora or aboriginal communities in the North. While the handbook is open to contributions from Scholars working on the Global South but who are not from the Global South, we expect these contributions to be in a minority or to be in partnership with Southern scholars.
What a proposal for a chapter should consist of?
- The entire proposal should be no more than 1 page long.
- An abstract of approximately 300 words that describes your ideas for addressing a particular concept, with the theory/ies you will advance or the theorist/s you will use, the key argument you will make, the regions addressed and youth studies issues that will be engaged in their chapter.
- A brief outline of the proposed chapter including sub-headings and the focus of each sub-section.
- A short biosketch (150 word maximum) that includes your research areas, national origin, current institution and motivation for involvement in this project.
Evaluation of submissions
Proposals will be reviewed by the volume editors according to the following criteria:
- Does the chapter contribute to advancing a Southern approach to youth studies?
- Is it an original piece of work, not previously published, and contributing to knowledge?
- Is it critical and theoretically informed? Does it use empirical evidence?
- Does it contain some comparative aspects across Southern contexts?
- Is the author from the Global South or the diaspora, or if not, are there other compelling reasons to accept their contribution?
