The October 2015 issue of Education in the North will focus as a special issue on the theme of ‘bridging divides’. For the purposes of this issue, the idea of bridging divides centres on research that negotiates boundaries that are traversed infrequently or with difficulty. The nature of this theme is inherently multi-disciplinary and multi-professional. Therefore, submissions are welcomed from a broad range of disciplines and professions focusing on education in the circumpolar north. Possible themes of interest for ‘bridging’ can be diverse including, but not limited to, the following: practitioner/researcher; urban/rural; insider/outsider; Indigenous/non-Indigenous; inter-disciplinary; and inter-cultural. A range of submissions can be made as follows: articles detailing new empirical research findings, features focused on on-going research projects/ work-based projects and book reviews (see journal website for author guidelines).

Submission Deadline: February 27th 2015

Expected Publication:  October 2015
