Please forward this announcement from eSharp, the University of Glasgow's award-winning International Inter-disciplinary postgraduate e-journal to all postgraduate students.  Thank You.

Please note that the deadline for issue 11 of eSharp, In Action: Social Engagement, Empowerment and Change, has been extended to 14th March 2008
The eleventh issue of eSharp will consider themes of social engagement, empowerment, and change. We welcome articles which examine the social implications and practical applications of various theories, as well as how these may empower marginalised social groups or promote social change. In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the journal, the ideas of engagement and empowerment within society can be interpreted broadly. We encourage submissions from postgraduates in any area of the arts, humanities, social sciences or education.

Articles should engage with the main themes and may include, but are not limited to, topics such as
•     social history
•     revolution
•     social ethics
•     grassroots movements or projects
•     global/local community involvement
•     Utopic theories or movements
•     practical applications of theory
•     political activism
•     disenfranchised/marginalised groups
•     art and social engagement
•     media representations of marginalised groups.

Submissions must be based on original research and should be between 4,000 and 6,000 words in length. Please ensure that you accompany your article with an abstract of 200 to 250 words and a list of three to five keywords to indicate the subject area of your article. For more information, a full list of guidelines and our style sheet, visit Submissions and enquiries should be sent to [log in to unmask] .

The final deadline for submission of articles is Friday 14th March 2008.
