Publication: Writing and Publishing Community-Engaged Scholarship

Publishing community-engaged scholarship (CES) throws into stark relief the tensions between what’s accessible and valuable to communities and what’s recognizable and admirable to academics who hold power over community-engaged scholars’ careers.

The current issue of the Journal of Community Engagement and Higher Education includes an article with research-based advice from John Forester, professor of city and regional planning in the College of Art, Architecture and Planning, on how to write and publish CES, with special emphasis on success in career-building and academic publishing contexts. In the publication, Anna Sims Bartel, the Einhorn Center’s associate director of community-engaged curricula and practice, also offers a snapshot of the Faculty Fellows in Engaged Scholarship, a program designed to build a community of practice for advancing publication of CES.
