Theory in Action: Call for Papers

Theory in Action!
The Journal of the Transformative Studies Institute


While there have been many theoretical analyses of such aspects of social justice as stratification and inequality, and civil rights, there is a need for more research that connects activism with theory.  We believe that theory without action and action without theoretical grounding are inherently flawed. To change the world, activists and scholars need to collaborate in order to inform one other’s work.  To this end, we especially seek papers in which theoretical analysis fosters societal change or in which practical experience guides theoretical research.

Theory in Action invites U.S. and international submissions of well-researched and thought-provoking papers. We accept both theoretical and empirical papers. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

*   Labor / Unions / Collective Bargaining
*   Globalization
*   Social Movements
*   Role of State Actors
*   Race & Gender
*   Direct Action
*   Political Action
*   Activism, Academia, & Scholarship
*   Environment & Space
*   Transformative Learning & Action
*   Inequality & Power
*   Novel Means of Resistance
*   The Media & Societal Justice
*   Historical Analysis

Theory in Action is an international peer reviewed journal.
Submissions are due April 31, 2008.
