#CritEdPol: Journal of Critical Education Policy Studies at Swarthmore College

ISSN 2473-912X

#CritEdPol, Journal of Critical Education Policy Studies at Swarthmore College (ISSN 2473-912X) is an open access, undergraduate peer-reviewed  journal published by the Critical Education Policies Studies (CEPS) group at Swarthmore College. #CritEdPol engages in a critical education policy approach where policy formation and implementation is understood as the product of socio-historical conditions and competing ideologies in relation to institutions and individuals. This framework allows us to view education policy as a tool for traditional policymakers and community advocates to solve problems and affect change. Our Journal provides a space for these critical discussions of education policies and issues as they impact various communities and educational practice. In keeping with our community focus, we believe that submissions to our Journal can take a variety of forms, ranging from scholarly papers to multimedia projects, provided that they inspire a continued conversation among stakeholders about education policy and practice.

The journal is published in association with bepress and the Swarthmore College libraries (Pennsylvania, USA). #CritEdPol will publish two issues per year starting June 2016. Inquiries should be addressed through the contact form or by email

Studies in Visual Communication (Annenberg School for Communication)

ISSN 0276-6558

Studies in Visual Communication (SVC) grew out of the pioneer Studies in the Anthropology of Visual Communication (SAVICOMM) that was launched in 1974 under the auspices of the American Anthropological Association and edited by Sol Worth of the Annenberg School at Penn. The journal signaled a revival of scholarly work in visual media and communication, following on the earlier work of Margaret Mead, Gregory Bateson and others in the 1930s, and stimulated by Sol Worth and John Adair’s groundbreaking Navaho Film Project of the late 1960s. The first issues of SAVICOM included work by eminent scholars Howard Becker and George Gerbner, and the first translations of the work of filmmaker Jean Rouch. Becker’s article “Photography and Sociology” is commonly accepted as one of the foundational works in visual sociology. In Vol. 2, no. 2 Jay Ruby wrote “Is an Ethnographic Film a Filmic Ethnography?”– one of the foundational works in visual anthropology.
