Irish Schools and Education in Latin America

Guest Editor:

María José Roger, Universidad Católica Argentina

The editors of Irish Migration Studies in Latin America invite contributions for a special issue of the journal (volume 6, number 2, July 2008). Articles on any aspect of Irish schools and education in Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal will be considered for publication. This special edition will focus on the role played by Irish teachers and formal or improvised tutors, their schools and curricula, the involvement of Irish families in private or public education, the establishment of Catholic, Protestant and other religious or lay schools, the teaching of English and Irish languages in the region, and the teaching of Spanish and Portuguese languages in Ireland. Contributions will be drawn from the fields of humanities, history, literature, psychology, sociology, and other disciplines. We also welcome book, film and website reviews, biographies and edited source material. Articles in English must be emailed to the Guest Editor no later than 28 May 2008 (articles in Spanish, Portuguese, French or German no later than 28 April 2008).
