Evaluations that Fail
We are planning an issue of New Directions in Evaluation focused on evaluation experience that speaks to challenges and unfinished business more than to successes and completions. This is an area of evaluation practice that remains under-explored. This volume will explore problems, dilemmas and failures in evaluation in a way that helps us think in different ways about the politics, methods and ethics of evaluation and even about the limits of what we can do.
Chapters will be from 4-5k words and we invite you or someone you know who may have such an experience to submit an abstract of up to 300 words by the end of this month. We would also be excited to consider a more extended case study of up to 10,000 words, in which case we would like to see a more detailed abstract of up to 750 words.
If you are interested in contributing to this series, or if you can pass this on to someone who might be, please send your expressions of interest and abstract to either Saville Kushner at [email protected] or Acacia Cochise at [email protected] by the end of the month.
Please contact us for the outline for this issue for further detail and contact us if you would like to discuss a contribution.
