Call for 2017 Post-Conference Papers

PGL 2017 Post-Conference: Call for Papers

Thank you very much for your support of PGL 2017. Thanks to your participation it was an unmitigated success. We invite ALL presenters to submit a full length paper for publication. In lieu of a separate proceedings book, papers will be published in a special number of the Journal for Engaged Pedagogy (ISSN 1397-3964) and would be considered a “peer-reviewed publication”.

The papers should be between 1000 and 5000 words long and use APA citation style and formatting (see attached style sheet for detailed guidelines).

Young scholars are welcome to submit, though we strongly encourage that they submit with their instructor. For the instructors, one option is to have each of the students submit 300-500 words, then you add the introduction and conclusion. Thereby you become the lead author.

Authors are responsible for ensuring that their work is well-written and error-free. However, there are options for professional editing and help with writing for those who request it (an American based scholar is willing to help for a fee).

Please submit papers by May 31st 2018 as MS Word (.docx) attachments via email to:

The publication due date is scheduled for late 2018.
