Aim and Scope
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education is an international peer-reviewed journal. It will publish articles, reviews and scholarly comment relating to the arts and humanities in higher education. The journal seeks to
- publish high quality articles that bring critical research to the fore and stimulate debate;
- serve the community of arts and humanities educators internationally, by publishing significant opinion and research into contemporary issues of teaching and learning within the domain. These will include enquiries into policy, the curriculum and appropriate forms of assessment, as well as developments in method such as electronic modes of scholarship and course delivery;
- publish articles about both the interface between research and teaching in the subject in question and the transformational purposes of a higher education; and
- promote re-conceptualization of arts and humanities disciplines in ways that reflect, and reflect upon, teaching.
The journal will not publish purely descriptive accounts of data collection or uncritical reports of teaching and course delivery methods.
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education will be international in that it will seek, wherever possible, to publish material from authors with an international reputation and articles that are of interest to an international audience.
The journal welcomes contributions from educators in any discipline or interdisciplinary field of the Arts and Humanities in Higher Education (e.g. art and art history; classical studies; communications; cultural, film and media studies; gender studies; history; literatures; digital literacies; modern foreign languages; museum studies; music; performance arts; philosophy; religious studies), and from adjacent and related fields such as sociology, politics and education.
