Call for Themed Manuscripts

The ICCTE Journal is issuing a call for themed manuscripts related to practicing a Christian ethic of care. This issue is scheduled for fall 2018, and offers an opportunity for scholars to contribute articles from a wide variety of perspectives and contexts. Paul Shotsberger and Cathy Freytag will edit this themed issue.  We desire to hear voices from higher education and PK-12 schools, administrators and instructors, including theoretical perspectives, as well as manuscripts presenting research results from practice.

Possible themes include, but are not limited to:

  • Christian ethic of care vs. ethic of care
  • Theoretical and biblical foundations for Christian ethic of care
  • Hazards and rewards of demonstrating a Christian ethic of care in public schools
  • Factors that mitigate against Christian ethic of care in today’s educational environment
  • Preparing teacher candidates to demonstrate a Christian ethic of care
  • Christian ethic of care as a basis for school/university leadership
  • The influence Christian ethic of care can have on organizational structures

We request that you make your submission no later than February 1, 2018, so that we can consider them for publication in the fall 2018 issue of ICCTE-J.

Consult the guidelines for authors at for guidance on manuscript preparation.

If you have questions regarding this call or would like to discuss an idea with the editors contact Paul Shotsberger at or Cathy Freytag at
