Special Journal Issue on Emerging Technologies - invitation to submit an abstract

We are currently seeking article proposals for a special issue of the journal Human Behavior and Emergent Technologies(https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/25781863#pane-01cbe741-499a-4611-874e-1061f1f4679e01) and though you might be interested. In an effort to advance our present understanding of human use of technology across a variety of contexts (including classrooms), we are seeking theoretical papers that tackle fundamental questions such as What is “behavior”? What is “technology”? What is the relation between behavior and technology? What does it mean to “behave with a technology”? We invite proposals that draw from a variety of scholarly fields (e.g., psychology, philosophy, communication, education, sociology, linguistics, and anthropology). We are open to papers proposing new theoretical perspectives (e.g., the T in STEM education), reviews of classic and modern theories of behavior and technology (e.g., Rogers’ diffusion of innovations theory, Ajzen’s theory of planned behavior, Putman’s social capital theory, Mayer’s multimedia learning theory, Tinbergen’s theory of animal behavior), as well as philosophical papers that theorize “behavior” and “technology” (e.g., Ihde’s philosophical work on technoscience, and teaching and learning as behaviors).  The deadline for submitting paper proposals is December 15, 2019.  More detailed information can be found in the full call for proposals (attached). For any questions regarding this special issue, please contact the co-editors Alan Oliveira (aoliveira@albany.edu) and Zheng Yan (zyan@albany.edu). Also, it would be great if you could forward this call to any colleagues who might be interested and professional associations that you may be affiliated with – we are trying to spread the word as broadly as possible.
