Journal History

Dialogues in Social Justice: An Adult Education Journal (DSJ) was established by Dr. Lisa R. Merriweather, Associate Professor of Adult Education and Dr. Dionne M. Rosser-Mims, Associate Professor of Adult Education in 2015 to address issues and concerns related to equity, diversity, and social justice in adult education. They serve as the Editors in Chief. Subsequently, invitations were extended to Dr. Mervin Chisolm to join the team of editors, Dr. Joni Schwartz to serve as the Reflections Editor, and Dr. Brendaly Drayton to serve as the Book Review and Resources Editor. The inaugural issue was published in February 2016 and featured reflections of the past, present and future authored by respected scholars in the field. A themed issue format was subsequently adopted in 2017.
