Curriculum Inquiry Writing Fellowship and Writers’ Retreat

Call for Nominations 2023

June 19-24, in person in Toronto with online option if needed

Nominations for the first stage of review due December 16, 2022

The editors of Curriculum Inquiry (CI) are pleased to invite nominations for the 2023 Curriculum Inquiry Writing Fellowship (CIWF) and Writers’ Retreat, to be hosted by the editorial team of CI and held in Toronto from June 19 to 24. Up to eight fellows will be selected to participate in this Writers’ Retreat, which will include a series of writing workshops, feedback sessions, opportunities for mentorship by established scholars, and writing over five days, culminating in potential publication in a future issue of Curriculum Inquiry.

The CIWF seeks to support early career scholars, including advanced doctoral students, recent graduates, and early career faculty (who obtained their doctoral degree no earlier than January of 2019), who are contributing to new directions in curriculum studies. Please note that authors who have previously published in CI are not eligible.

The fellows will work with a group of established faculty mentors and members of the CI editorial team toward the development of an article-length manuscript to be considered for publication in the journal. Each selected fellow will be expected to submit an early draft of 3000 to 5000 words at least four weeks before the beginning of the retreat. All travel expenses will be covered. If any of the fellows are unable to travel to Toronto, we will make an online participation option available.

The first stage of the nomination process is due December 16, 2022, and includes:

  1. Fellowship application to be completed online by nominee, including the name of a nominator (e.g. thesis supervisor, department chair, or mentor) who has agreed to write a nomination letter if the nominee is selected for the second stage of review;
  2.  Curriculum Vitae;
  3.  250-300 word abstract and a one-page outline of the proposed article to be developed (i.e. a new and original work to be developed during the retreat). The outline might include section headings as well as a sequenced list of proposed themes or topics to be addressed in the article with a brief sentence on how the themes are connected to and/or in support of the theme of the proposed paper.
