Purdue Journal of Service-Learning and International Engagement (Scholarly Publishing Services Open Access Journals)

ISSN 2331-9143

Call for Submissions - Fall 2021 (Vol.8)

Proposals and articles are currently being accepted for consideration in the Fall 2021 issue (Vol 8). Publication in the Fall 2021 issue of the journal requires proposals be received no later than January 1, 2021, and complete article submissions no later than March 1, 2020. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis, and those received after the deadline will be considered for the following 2022 issue.

The 2021 issue will feature two special sections:

Special section on Service-Learning during the Covid-19 Pandemic

We seek proposals for submissions that capture the challenges and innovations that have emerged from doing service-learning and community engagement during the Covid-19 pandemic. As students were brought home from study abroad engagement experiences, and as student service-learning projects shifted to remote work, what were some of the challenges and impacts on students and partners? What service-learning activities emerged in response to Covid-19? What innovations or new knowledge were developed that enhanced service-learning for students? And in what ways did students and communities benefit, despite what might be perceived as a major setback?

Special section on Black Lives Matter in Service-Learning

We seek proposals for submissions that address racial diversity, equity, and inclusion in service-learning. How have students used their academic training to engage as activists? How have movements like Black Lives Matter been enriched by student voices and academic perspectives? How has service-learning impacted students' personal development (e.g., racial identity development, awareness of systemic racism and racial privilege)? And, perhaps most important, how do Black lives matter in service-learning?

Submissions that address the intersections of Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter are encouraged, especially the ways that Covid-19 particularly illuminates systemic racial inequalities and the challenges and rewards of mobilizing for racial justice during a pandemic. For both sections, we seek to strongly amplify marginalized student and faculty voices so that we might expand what service-learning is and can be.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to share this information with students interested in publishing an article, and are also encouraged to mentor a student writing an article.

Submissions are made directly to the PJSL website. You can click Submit Articles on the left navigation bar to make a submission. The login credentials are not associated with your Purdue login. You will need to create a new account if you are a first-time user. Types of submissions can be found by clicking Author Guidelines and FAQ on the left navigation bar.

The Year in C-SPAN Archives Research

To access full-text of all books in the series, please choose the "select a volume" dropdown menu to the left.


The Center for C-SPAN Scholarship & Engagement was founded in 2017 at Purdue University to foster and enhance the use of C-SPAN programming in scholarship and teaching. It will also sponsor forums and programs on the Purdue campus as well as around the country at professional conferences. CCSE is part of the Brian Lamb School of Communication in the College of Liberal Arts.

Each year the Center is sponsoring a research conference at Purdue University in which ten papers utilizing the C-SPAN Archives are presented and subsequently published in the Purdue University Press book The Year in C-SPAN Archives Research. The 2020 theme is "Democracy and Media" Papers are invited that address the presidency, the Congress, the courts, elections, rhetoric, political communication, history and other social science disciplines.

One panel will be on topics in big data analysis. For this panel, participants are encouraged to use the newly developed Archives API that enables the retrieval of data from the C-SPAN Video Library. Using names, keywords, dates, and program formats, a CSV file is exported for use in subsequent analysis.

The C-SPAN Archives contains over 260,000 hours of C-SPAN programming and are located in the Purdue Research Park next to Purdue University. The Archives represents a record of over thirty years of our nation’s political history.

We are currently soliciting proposals for the Fall 2020 conference. See previous volumes (Purdue University Press) and the C-SPAN Video Library (c-span.org) for ideas for future research.


We are using this website as a vehicle to submit and review proposals. Researchers seeking to apply for these grants made possible from the C-SPAN Education Foundation should submit a vita of less than five pages and a proposal of no more than 1500 words in which they outline the proposed research, how it will utilize the C-SPAN Video Library, and how this research advances knowledge of a research question in their field. The grants will be paid to individuals by Purdue University.

NOTE: Your vita will be uploaded after you hit submit. There is a second page for additional files.

A committee of faculty from the Brian Lamb School of Communication and the Department of Political Science will review the proposals. Proposals should be submitted by May 1, 2020 and decisions will be made by mid-May to ensure that participants have sufficient time to complete their research papers.

All papers should acknowledge that funding was made possible in part by the C-SPAN Education Foundation. Submissions of proposals must be done using this submission form. Questions about research, papers, and the conference should be directed to Professor Robert X. Browning, Brian Lamb School of Communication and the Department of Political Science (rxb@purdue.edu).
