The Faculty of Education at the University of New Brunswick is pleased to announce the publication of a new thematic education journal, titled Antistasis: a New Brunswick Education Journal.  This publication is rooted in the vision of education as a public good, a theme that is reflected in the inaugural issue, now available.

The journal will be published twice a year and submissions are welcome from all stakeholders in the field of education including, but not limited to, faculty, school administration, teachers, support staff, parents, provincial school districts and the New Brunswick Department of Education.

The publication is available in limited print, free of charge.  You can also find a link to the publication, which is available free in electronic format, on the Faculty of Education webpage at www.unbf.ca/education.

Editor, Theodore Christou, says the publication is intended to create discussion and serve as a reference point on educational issues and topics.

“We hope that this publication will be a bridge, opening pathways and conversations on diverse educational subjects,” said Dr. Christou.

UNB Fredericton Dean of Education, Ann Sherman, says sharing individual experiences and scholarly research can only lead to growth in the field of education.

“To be able to share our experience and knowledge with students and others who might someday apply or extend our teaching and research in schools is exhilarating. Continued learning and professional growth are highly valued and I believe the learning and research opportunities we all participate in do contribute to the public good.”

Submissions and feedback are being accepted for the next issue, the subject of which will be ‘Technology and the Promise of Progress in Education.’  Submissions can be forwarded to the editor prior to Jan. 31, 2011.  Guidelines for authors are outlined on the final page of the published document.

For information or submissions, contact Theodore Christou, assistant professor, UNB Faculty of Education, at 506-453-4992, or antistas@unb.ca.
