The Journal of Impact Cultures (JIC) is a new journal/resource for transforming educational policy and practice. The journal is published by CIRCLE, which is an interdisciplinary research group. The journal and its associated research group is based at the University of East London but operates in collaboration with colleagues from a number of universities in the UK and beyond. 

We are seeking new submissions for inclusion in JIC. For further information, visit www.uel.ac.uk/jic.

Theme for Issue 1:  Decolonising the academy – student and staff investigations into the possibilities of HE cultures.

Decolonisation of Higher Education Institutions in the UK is a topic that is gaining attention and prominence regarding the way forward for an inclusive education. This inaugural journal invites papers related to the decolonisation of universities and the possibilities that such a move would make to the culture that currently exists in HE. Articles related to decolonisation of the curriculum, the University environment, learning and teaching and beyond are welcome.

Submissions are now open to potential contributors for our inaugural journal issue. The deadline for this issue’s manuscript submissions is 5pm on 29th March 2019 GMT.

Manuscripts should align with the theme set out above, and all research should be undertaken in partnership with students either as co-creators or as the central focus on the work. Note that MSS must not exceed 6,000 words, or 7,000 with appendices.
