The Journal of Interactive Technology and
Pedagogy <> (JITP) seeks scholarly
(especially creative and experimental) work that contributes to or is informed
by the liberatory pedagogical legacy of bell hooks. Paying special attention to
texts like Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom (1994)
and Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope (2003), this special themed issue
explores how collaborative, community-centered, and/or multimodal engagements
with technology—as informed by hooks’s work—can transform frameworks and
outcomes for instruction, as well open up new shared spaces for learning.

Drawing on hooks’s radical, inclusive, disruptive, and recuperative legacy—and
the scholars informed by it—this issue will highlight the use of digital
technology in teaching, educational organizing, and anti-oppressive praxes
within, alongside, and beyond academia. We ask: What kinds of embodied and
communal interactions are enabled by teaching with technology? How can we
reconcile the inherent contradictions in a learning community where technology
functions at once as a tool for social justice and for surveillance capitalism?

We are especially interested in the intersection of technologies and

  *   anti-colonial, anti-classist, anti-capitalist, anti-patriarchal frameworks
  *   Black liberatory, Black feminist, and socially just forms of teaching,
learning, and community organizing.

Besides scholarly papers, the submissions can consist of audio or visual
presentations; interviews, dialogues, or conversations; and creative, artistic,
experimental, and multimodal engagements with hooks’s work.

A consideration of digital tools and technology in the context of hooks’s
pedagogical scholarship might address:

  *   engagements with open technology
  *   radical collaboration and/or creativity in the classroom and beyond
  *   systemic critiques of digital tools in teaching and learning
  *   the labor and care considerations of academic technology projects
  *   critical and community-centered teaching and learning frameworks
  *   the ethics and politics of publishing student and/or community-centered
  *   social justice pedagogies involving radical reimaginations of pedagogical
structures and communities
  *   academic mentorship, advisement, and committee work
  *   theorizing praxis through lived experience
  *   technological infrastructures and the promise of radical co-liberation

Brief Guidelines for Submissions

Research-based submissions should include discussions of approach, method, and
analysis. When possible, research data should be made publicly available and
accessible via the Web and/or other digital mechanisms, a process that JITP can
and will support as necessary. Successes and interesting failures are equally
welcome. Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical
frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies play out in
both formal and informal educational settings. Discipline-specific submissions
should be written for non-specialists.

For further information on style and formatting, accessibility requirements, and
multimedia submissions, consult JITP’s accessibility
guidelines<>, style
guide<>, and multimedia
submission guidelines<

Submission and Review Process

All work appearing in the Issues section of JITP is reviewed by the issue
editors and independently by two scholars in the field, who provide formative
feedback to the author(s) during the review process. We practice signed, as
opposed to anonymous or so-called “blind,” peer review. We intend that the
journal itself—both in our process and in our digital product—serves as an
opportunity to reveal, reflect on, and revise academic publication and classroom

As a courtesy to our reviewers, we will not consider simultaneous submissions,
but we will do our best to reply to you within three months of the submission
deadline. The expected length for finished manuscripts is under 5,000 words or
an equivalent length or scope for timed or other forms of media (e.g. roughly
20–25 minutes of dialogue, 45 minutes of a spoken presentation, etc.). Both
text-based and multimedia should be prepared to undergo review for their
relationship to scholarly and related conversations, as well as be amenable to
revision. All work should be original and previously unpublished. Essays or
presentations posted on a personal blog may be accepted, provided they are
substantially revised; please contact us with questions at<>.

Important Dates

Submission deadline for full manuscripts is 31 May 2023. Anticipated publication
via Manifold Scholarship<> is December 2023.

Please view our submission guidelines on our commons
site<> for information about submitting
to the Journal.

        Subject: CFP: Is AI the future of collective memory?

Dear Colleagues,

You will find a special issue CFP on the relationship between AI and collective
memory on this link

This project aims at bridging the AI scholarship and the field of memory studies
which have not been crossing so far, strangely enough.

We would be grateful if you could circulate it in your networks and of course
consider contributing to this project and the informal network it aims at
creating, beyond the publication of the special issue per se.

Very sincerely
Sarah Gensburger and Frederic Clavert
