Call for Chapter Proposals: Creative Data Analysis

The primary audiences for this edited collection will be Postgraduate Researchers and Early Career Researchers and it will also be a useful resource for Masters’ students, practice-based and mid-career researchers.

Increasingly researchers, practitioners, and students are working with data in creative analytic ways, whether their data was creatively or conventionally gathered. Therefore, this ‘how-to’ edited collection, setting out ways to adapt, or devise, a method of creative data analysis is a much-needed resource.

The editors interest lies in international proposals from all disciplines, and transdisciplinary work is welcome. Analysis may be of quantitative, qualitative or mixed data. A broad definition of ‘creative’ is used to include arts-based, embodied, lateral thinking, participatory, technological, multi-media, and other such approaches. ‘Analytic work’ can include methods of sense-making beyond working solely with data, and we do not necessarily regard data analysis as something that comes in between data generation and research reporting. The editors are open to chapters offering a creative approach to a specific aspect of analytic work, rather than a complete method.

Call for papers - Transdisciplinary Research for Understanding and Transforming Food Systems

Frontiers

 

The goal of this Research Topic is to offer a forum to gather and critically synthesize new insights on how transdisciplinary research approaches and processes can be mobilized to understand better and transform effectively and inclusively food systems. By definition, transdisciplinary research integrates insights from different academic disciplines and non-academic stakeholders in processes of knowledge production. The starting point of this Research Topic is that food systems are multi-dimensional and hence any effort to understand them would require not only insights from different academic disciplines, but also input from stakeholders beyond academia that have intimate knowledge and different experiences of processes in food systems. At the same time, the transformation of food systems is typically considered to be a “wicked problem”, without any possible simple and definitive solution. Transdisciplinary research approaches are often viewed as promising avenues to inform decision-making in the context of such problems. In this sense, the transdisciplinary integration of multiple - and often contradictory - approaches, knowledge systems, and worldviews is challenging, but also a unique opportunity to understand and transform food systems.

Speciel issue call for papers - Integrative sustainability education: emerging concepts and approaches

Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences

 

Sustainability challenges are complex and entail closely interlinked elements that span across disciplines, actors from all parts of society (citizens, NGOs, companies, local to national governments, intergovernmental initiatives,...), scales (local to global), etc. Higher education institutions play a critical role in tackling these challenges. Research on sustainability challenges and solutions as well as the management of higher education institutions for more sustainable operations have already received a lot of attention in the scientific arena. Education of students has so far received less attention. Although sustainability pedagogy and specific skills and learning outcomes for individual courses are increasingly being represented, the scientific literature still lacks depth in analyzing how to teach integrative skills. For this special issue, we encourage authors to consider the following dimensions of integration:

 

  • Sustainability in educational programming
  • Student population
  • Co-curricular activities
  • Institutional level
  • Disciplines/Stakeholder engagement
  • Sustainability issues/challenges

 

Deadline: 15 December 2021

Global Social Challenges Journal

 

How can we re-imagine society in an era of climate change, pandemic, hunger, poverty and other pressing global societal challenges? Significant threats and dangers lie ahead of us, but so do opportunities. This new fully open access, not for profit journal aims to facilitate thinking about these positive new trajectories and become the journal of choice to address the complexities of global social challenges across disciplines. The Global Social Challenges Journal will be the first such journal to be based in the social sciences, whilst engaging with research from humanities, arts and STEM. It will be an important home for research that contributes to the creation of alternative futures that are socially and environmentally just and sustaining.
