Call for Paper and Chapter Proposals: Service Learning and Rural Communities Anthology Book
Call for paper proposals: 500 word proposal
RASL--The Rural Alliance for Service Learning—invites paper proposals for an edited collection that will focus on the practice of service learning with rural communities in North America. The collection will highlight how service learning in rural areas highlights unique lessons that can inform all service learning. Please view the RASL white paper, which helps to frame the collection, and initial examples of case studies on our website at http://comm-org.wisc.edu/rasl.
Chapter topics submitted to date:
• Geographic Disparities in Access to Service Learning
• Role of Risk in Rural Service Learning
• Student Voice in Rural Service-Learning
• Service Learning in the Rural Community College
• Using Participatory Action Research to Fight Rural Poverty
Please submit a 500 word proposal outlining the paper, an estimate of its approximate length for consideration. We are currently interested in anything from a 5-page case story to an in-depth theoretical paper or empirical study. Submissions can be sent to Jenni Walsh, Wisconsin Campus Compact Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
