Global Citizen Digest
The Global Citizen Digest magazine is looking for employee and student submissions for our upcoming issue:
Is global citizenship for everyone?
Here are some points to consider:
- Who can be a global citizen and how is global citizenship assigned?
- What are the defining features of a global citizen?
- Is a global citizen different from a local citizen or national citizen?
- How social locations such as race, religion, wealth, gender, etc. impact one’s "right" to citizenship.
In a climate of rising xenophobia and populist-nationalism, such questions are important to consider as institutions of higher education internationalize and work toward inclusion.
We invite staff, faculty and students to reflect on this theme and consider the following questions for your submissions:
- How can the field of Global Citizenship Education:
- foster solutions to current issues and attitudes around citizenship, rights, and inclusion?
- create safe spaces that cultivate understanding, unity and support during a time of fear, suspicion and ignorance?
- create conversations centered on equity during a time when dialogue is breaking down and becoming more polarized?
- address racism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, sexism, and transphobia?
Submissions are due Monday, May 1, 2017.
You can use a wide range of formats including, but not limited to: interviews, research articles, art work, reflection and opinion pieces. Submissions are 1,000 words or less and all photos must be jpeg (300dpi or more). Please follow APA guidelines. For further details on magazine guidelines, please see the attachment.
