The inaugural issue of a collaborative publication between the
College of Educational Studies
and Peter Lang Publishers was unveiled at the conference of The American Educational Research Association (AERA) in April.

The Radical Imagine-Nation
is a national journal designed to foster conversation about the direction of social justice in education. Its formal launch at the conference was among the high points for Chapman University students and faculty in attendance, said Margaret Grogan, Ph.D., dean of the College of Educational Studies, who met with the editorial team and Peter Lang partners during the conference.

“I found it a very exciting discussion of the possibilities for the new journal which promises to be cutting-edge,” she said. “I was especially glad to see it echoed the theme of AERA this year – ‘Public Scholarship to Education Diverse Democracies.'”

Several Chapman faculty serve on the journal’s editorial team, including executive editors Peter McLaren, Ph.D., distinguished professor in critical studies and co-director of The Paulo Freire Democratic Project and International Ambassador for Global Ethics and Social Justice, and Suzanne SooHoo, Ph.D., professor and the Jack H. and Paula Hassinger Chair in Education. The associate editors are Anaida Colon-Muniz, Ed.D, associate professor, Lilia Monzo, Ph.D., associate professor, and Miguel Zavala, Ph.D., associate professor.

In addition to formally launching the journal, several faculty and Ph.D. students from CES also presented papers at the conference. Grogan said it was particularly satisfying to see the students’ research so well-received by professional colleagues.

“It was really exciting to see our Ph.D. student rise to the occasion to present their research interests succinctly and informatively,” she said.
