The journal "Reflections"
invites submissions to a Winter 2004 Special Issue on Prison Literacies,
Narratives, and Community Connections. Reflections is a journal of writing,
service-learning and community literacy, providing a forum for teachers,
researchers, students and community partners to share research and discuss
the theoretical, political and ethical implications of community-based
writing and writing pedagogy.
The special issue, which
is guest edited by Tobi Jacobi and Patricia E. O'Connor, will consider
articles addressing the topics of collaborative learning and writing projects
with students in university and prison classrooms; reflections on teaching
prison or university-prison courses and programs; projects supporting residents'
re-entry into society; prison as institution and industry; studies of the
discourses of violence and rehabilitation; and life-stories/creative non-fiction
about and by students, inmates, and prison workers.
Reflections is especially
interested in representing the often silenced voices of incarcerated women
and men, correctional officers and administrators, and their friends and
families. Writing can take the form of a short essay, a letter, a poem,
or a story; collaborative papers and experimentations with form are encouraged.
Writings may be as short as a poem but should be no longer than 20 double-spaced
Reflections is also seeking
short reviews of recent books and films about prison life and the justice
system. A book review might include a brief summary of the contents and
a longer section that links the text to your experience or knowledge of
prison life. Contact the editor, Barbara Roswell, if you are interested
in receiving a book to review, and she will arrange for it to be sent to
you. Be sure to indicate the title of the book.
Manuscripts should run no
more than 5,000 words and should follow MLA guidelines. Send inquiries
to Barbara Roswell at [email protected],
Patricia O'Connor at [email protected],
or Tobi Jacobi at [email protected]
by July 15. Send electronic submissions to Barbara Roswell at [email protected]
by August 1. Detailed submission and other information about Reflections
is available at http://www.reflectionsjournal.org
