Call for Reviewers for Review of Global Studies Literature, No. 3

The "Review of Global Studies Literature" is an online collection of book reviews and insights written by international educators, discussing both theory and practice. The second installment went live this past December with contributions from the following individuals: Eduardo Contreras, Emily Gorlewski, Jerrod Hansen, Joe Hoff, Kevin Kehl, Gavin Sanderson, Tony Amante Schepers, Carolyn Sorkin, Kimberly Turner, Rebecca Vincent, and Virginia Wickline. 

The editors of this project, Bryan McAllister-Grande and Rebecca Hovey (with support of the NAFSA TLS Research & Scholarship Subcommittee), are now planning for their third installment, targeted for January/February 2012. This installment will be thematic: the theme is "Sustainable Global Commitments in International Education."  For this theme, we are especially seeking creative, longer review articles that analyze a particular issue, drawing upon several different recent books and the reviewer's professional expertise.  This theme is meant to build off of the attention that "sustainability" is receiving at several different levels (including the upcoming NAFSA conference), and different intellectual and practical aspects of sustainability's relationship to international education.

The web site is at where you can download the "Call for Reviewers" and read prior installments.
