 Call for Papers: ‘Transformation in Higher Education’ 2025 Special Issue: We invite you to submit


AOSIS calls on all authors to participate in the 2025 special collection that will be published in the open-access scholarly journal Transformation in Higher Education.


Title: Transformation: A Humanizing Praxis


Understanding transformation as both process and practice can assist in finding new ways of imagining the academy, shifting us away from discourse as an end-in-itself, toward liberatory forms of knowledge sharing and ways of being in the world. Staff and students, who interact with the administrative, often bureaucratic face of the institution can be powerful interlocutors in distilling academic/worker-student demands and in facilitating meaningful change, sometimes in novel ways.

  • Submissions open: 15 July 2024
  • Submissions deadline: 30 August 2024
