Inaugural issue: Philosophy and Theory in Higher Education
Peter Lang announces the publication of the inaugural issue of Philosophy and Theory in Higher Education. PTHE is an international refereed scholarly journal committed to advancing understanding of the role(s) and purpose(s) of higher education. The journal strives to be inclusive in scope, addressing topics and issues of significance to a wide range of scholars and practitioners concerned with the relationship between higher education and society. Rigorous submissions informed by diverse philosophical and theoretical orientations, including, but not limited to, critical theory, existentialism, feminism, queer theory, post-colonialism, Marxism, liberalism, poststructuralism, postmodernism, and posthumanism will be welcomed.
PTHE aims to stimulate critical analyses of policy and practice in higher education, with an emphasis on inter-disciplinarity and international perspectives. The content will be primarily philosophical and theoretically-based research papers. Analytical papers that reflect on empirical projects will also be featured in the journal. Short responses to previous articles as well as essay reviews of new works in the field will be considered in order to promote ongoing critical dialogue within the journal. Proposals for special issues, with thematically linked papers, are encouraged.
The inaugural issue is open-access. To access the first issue, find more information about the journal, and/or submit a manuscript, go to:
