Postcolonial Directions in Education
Postcolonial Directions in Education is a recently launched peer-reviewed University of Malta journal published online and with open access to make the resource as available as possible to academics and students worldwide.
The journal is the brainchild of Peter Mayo from the University’s Education Faculty, who co-edits it with Anne Hickling-Hudson from Queensland University of Technology. Alex Grech from the University of Hull is the managing editor.
The journal uses English throughout but authors may provide abstracts in their native language. It will also feature reviews in English of books written in different languages, to provide further international visibility to these works. Reviews may also be written symposia, exhbitions and other activities having a strong postcolonial connection.
Each article is reviewed at least twice, mainly but not exclusively by members of the editorial or editorial advisory board.
The journal complements a book series that Prof. Hickling-Hudson and Prof. Mayo co-edit with Antonia Darder for Palgrave Macmillan, under the title Postcolonial Studies in Education. Seven volumes have already been published in the book series, and others are in the production line.
The editorial board comprises members from different University of Malta faculties, including Mary Darmanin, Gloria Lauri Lucente, Carmel Borg, George Sefa Dei, Daniel Schugurensky and Saviour Zammit. Dr Zammit and Dr Grech are responsible for the production side of this online venture.
Registration is free and the journal may be accessed at www.um.edu.mt/pde/index.php/pde1/issue/current.
