The Harvard Educational Review (HER) is planning to publish a special issue on Diverse Experiences of Immigrant Children and Youth in Education in order to extend and reframe the dialogue on immigration issues in the United States by bringing multiple voices and perspectives of researchers, practitioners, families, and students in conversation.
As part of this project, HER is looking for personal essays, stories, and visual art from children and youth who have been directly shaped by immigration experience. Student writers could be a child of immigrant parents or have immigrated to the with or without their families. HER is interested in publishing stories related to children and youths' educational experiences, and in particular, how these experiences are shaped by their families, communities, religious institutions, community organizations, or society at large. HER would like your help in encouraging young people you know to participate in this important opportunity.
HER is accepting submissions from PreK–12 students whose lives have been touched and shaped by immigration experience anywhere in the U.S. HER is particularly interested in stories related to educational experience, but realizes that "educational experiences" can occur in many locations besides schools. They are open to receiving multiple types of personal stories about growing up in immigrant homes and communities.
