Volume 6(2), 2017
Feminist Education for Social Justice
 


Publishing date
: November 2017

Deadline for submission of articles: June 1th, 2017

Coordination: Marta Nogueroles, Ana Irene Pérez Rueda y Ángel Méndez Núñez (http://www.gice-uam.es/)

Description:

We find ourselves at a historic moment in which the feminist struggle permeates social movements and has became a recurrent topic of discussion. Therefore, it is no accident that reactionary discourses are reinforced too. Discourses that try to delegitimise it through messages that disguise it as unnecessary and anachronic, as self-interested and convenient only to some or even as oppressive, comparing it with Nazism or with machismo. Moreover, as patriarchy adopts more and more invisible or subtle forms of discrimination, the idea that the school is already a gender-neutral institution spreads. Many of the voices that are being raised against segregated schools agree that mixed-sex schools are to a great extent coeducational and that every educational measure beyond sharing spaces, times and programs is indoctrination.

Far from this view, we support the idea that mixed-sex schooling is without a doubt insufficient, since it reproduces the cultural models of society. At the same time that it demands from the girls the learning of a subordinate personality, lacking autonomy and devoted to the others, it makes the boys more active and in control of their own criteria (Subirats, 2007, 2010). Therefore, it is still necessary to change the school, which we conceive as a space of socialization from where we can struggle against the undeniable legitimation and reproduction of the gender injustices that take place in the educational and social environment.

With the intention of publishing articles that help us to continue thinking and acting within this line, we propose a special issue about Feminist Education for Social Justice.

 

 
 

Volume 7, 2018
Education for Social and Environmental Justice
  


Publishing date
: 2018

Deadline for submission of articles: September 15th 2017

Coordination: Irene Moreno-Medina, Marian Suavita y Guillermina Belavi (http://www.gice-uam.es/)

Description:

¿What can the education do in relation to Environmental Justice? If the commitment to Environmental Justice is deep and real, then the question will also be valid with its inverted terms because Environmental Justice, conceived from the framework set, leads to rethink and redefine the role of education. Historically, the main task of the school was linked to the transmission of a knowledge and customs legacy highly valued by society. However, it is the same society which even with the —or despite the— legacy that it considers appropriate to transmitting, has put its own habitat on the brink of destruction. In this way, the Environmental Justice questions the traditional emphasis on passive assimilation and the reproduction of knowledge in a simplistic way, even when it responds at the same conservative purpose of the school, but nowadays it is not about the conservation of the particular way of life or a social order, but about the life itself on the planet. The Social Justice history imposes its mark, since if we follow its development line, its history harmonises better in the context of the political and environmental activism than with the mere transmission of knowledge about ecology, and this idea proposes to education socially and politically critical goals.

From this broad view, we invite you to participate in the RIEJS issue "Education for Social and Environmental Justice", with contributions that help to reflect about education and improve the practices in our schools. RIEJS is at the service of a collective reflection that will help and inspire us to work together for a sustainable world.
