Call for Proposals Details

Throughout history artists have led grassroots movements of protest, resistance, and liberation. They created dangerously, sometimes becoming martyrs for the cause. Their efforts kindled a fire, aroused the imagination and rallied the troops culminating in real transformational change. This volume seeks to explore the intersection of grassroots leadership and the arts for social change by accentuating the many victories artists have won for humanity. Through this volume, we hope readers will vicariously experience the work of these brave figures, reflect on their commitments and achievements, and continue to dream a better world full of possibility.

Call for Proposals Details

With the growing population diversity and mobility not only in the United States, but also throughout the world, leaders and followers will find themselves in more heterogeneous contexts within organizations and communities than ever before. Leaders of tomorrow need to be responsive to rapid change, prepared to lead a diverse workforce, and practiced in ways that are culturally responsive and competent in meeting the needs of a diverse population within an interconnected global society. This demands that leadership theories and research need to be more inclusive and robust if they are to remain relevant.

Call for Proposals Details

Currently we live in a fractured world. From squatters in Wall Street to religious extremists, the idea that for some to "win", others have to "lose" is everywhere. Events such as the Arab Spring, the political tide from left to right in Europe and the refugee flood trying to enter the EU, students taking to the streets in South America, the "Indignados" unemployed movement in Europe, racial tension in the United States and France... are all signs that people are tired of living in a zero-sum world.
