Valuing the ability to think critically about educational reforms that promote sustainable cultural practices, the Eco-Justice Press will welcome manuscripts that address the following:

 

  • Connections between the ecological crisis and social justice issues.

  • The patterns of linguistic colonization within the dominant, ethnic, and indigenous cultures.

  • The nature of the cultural commons of the dominant, ethnic and indigenous cultures--including traditions of self-reliance, local democracy, smaller ecological footprint, and alternatives to market-based consumerism.

  • Threats to the cultural and environmental commons, as well as to the traditions of social justice.

  • Impact of different technologies—including print-based technologies—on consciousness, traditions of community and individual self-sufficiency.

  • How to overcome the silences in science and environmental education classes about taken-for-granted ecologically unsustainable cultural patterns of thinking.

  • The aesthetics of ecologically sustainable lifestyles.

  • The connections between health and happiness issues of lifestyles centered more on participating in the local cultural commons.

  • Religious traditions and issues of social justice and ecological sustainability.

  • Ethnographies of sustainable practices by various groups.

  • Curriculum guides that assist classroom teachers in presenting ecologically sustainable and unsustainable practices in different areas of the curriculum.

  • Curriculum guides on how to reinforce ecological intelligence—from elementary classrooms to graduate school.

  • Curriculum guides on ecologically sustainability and religious issues for home-schooling parents—which may focus on language, cultural commons, toxic chemical, and social justice issues.

  • Historical studies of resistance of communities and ethnic groups to the industrial/consumer-dependent lifestyle.

Manuscripts addressing the above topics will need to be based on a clear understanding of the audience that is to be reached; such as classroom teachers, professors in teacher education and curriculum/educational studies, science and environmental education professors, and educational policy makers.
