First let us say, ‘thank you’ for being a member of the Peace and Justice Studies Association and for continuing to support such important work in these tumultuous times.
Starting with our next issue, the editorial team at the Peace Chronicle is asking our members to submit contributions. This move is in response to a request from our membership to have more input on the newsletter, and a desire from our editorial team to have the Chronicle more a collective effort and a shared reflection of the amazing work our members are engaged in.
In order to gather submissions for the next issue, we are using a Google form to collect material. In order to contribute, visit https://goo.gl/forms/YUAsLIAjKdRadyTj2 and complete the fields to contextualize your submission. At the end of the form you may either paste your contribution in as text or email the file as an attachment.
As far as content, we are looking for book reviews, film reviews, position papers, essays, letters, news, event report backs (e.g. conference, demonstration), short blurb reporting, job postings, advertisements, announcements for new publica- tions, programs and projects, opportunities for folks to publish and collaborate, or other forms of commentary on our work, our world, and our struggles.
We hope that this new form of association-wide publishing will make for a more dynamic, diverse and engaging newsletter that more closely reflects our network. In conjunction with this new method of gathering content, the Peace Chronicle will also feature a new, updated look, and will be assembled by PJSA’s Executive Director serving as managing editor, and work- ing in close collaboration with the student research team at Miami University. For more information on our student team please visit https://www.peacejusticestudies.org/about/staff.
The deadline for the Spring-Summer issue is May 1, 2017, with the issue to be published within two weeks of that date. If you have questions, please contact Michael@peacejusticestudies.org or firstname.lastname@example.org.
