Dear  friends,

Please submit relevant research and program MS to our new journal:

As an off-shoot of an international meeting of researchers in cultural
sustainability, a new quarterly journal was launched in 2007 to publish
research and scholarship in the field of Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority
The editors and publisher (Routledge) would like to encourage submissions
from anyone working in the field of linguistic, cultural, and educational
sustainability as they affect these learners and communities.

Aims & Scope
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education: An International Journal
(DIME) - a quarterly peer-reviewed journal focused on critical discourse and
research in diaspora, indigenous, and minority education - is dedicated to
researching cultural and linguistic sustainability in a world increasingly
consolidating under national, transnational, and global organizations. It
aims to draw attention to, and learn from, the many initiatives being
conducted around the globe in support of diaspora, indigenous, and minority
education, which might otherwise go unnoticed.

DIME invites research from a variety of theoretical and methodological
perspectives that emphasize the centrality of marginal voices and a
peripheral gaze, and which draw attention to the complex interrelations
between political, economic, historical, and social contexts and the ways in
which these various contexts shape educational policies, practices,
curricula, and outcomes. The journal welcomes articles that ground
theoretical reflections in specific empirical research and case studies of
diverse locations and peoples as yet underrepresented within scholarly
research and literature, as well as action or participatory research studies
of exemplary or "best" practices.

Intended to bridge arbitrary disciplinary boundaries in which such research
and theorizing are currently conducted, DIME encourages cutting-edge work
from around the world to enhance understanding of the relationships between
home and school cultures; educational development, curriculum, and cultural
change; local, regional, national, and/or transnational forces or
institutions; culture, ethnicity, and gender in identity construction;
migration and educational change; and societal attitudes and cultural and
linguistic variation.
