CFP: Journal of Information Literacy Special Issue on Critical Information Literacy, June 2023: Call for papers, contributions and publication mentors

Editors: Lauren Smith & Alison Hicks

The aim of this special issue of Journal Information Literacy is twofold: to expand on the rich knowledge sharing occurring in critical information literacy practice; and to highlight explorations of this work from a research perspective. What is the nature of the ways the body of theoretical and research literature on critical information literacy is (and is not) reflected in practice?  How are social changes influencing discourse in librarianship, and in turn, the boundaries between theory, research and practice related to critical information literacy?

We are keen to hear from academics and practitioners across the world. We are also particularly interested in contributions from outwith the confines of academic libraries. Proposals are welcomed in a wide range of formats. We will consider traditional manuscripts focusing on theory or research but are also keen to receive practice-based contributions and those taking unconventional forms. These could include zines, photo- or video-essays, research agendas, collaborative discussions, or audio recordings.

*Mentees:* If you are interested in submitting a contribution to the special edition of JIL but do not feel confident doing this alone, we may be able to pair you with a mentor who can offer guidance throughout the process of creation and submission.

*Mentors:* If you feel you would be a suitable mentor for prospective contributors, please contact Journal of Information Literacy with some information about your areas of interest or expertise.

Deadline: 01/09/2023
