Call for Proposals

For the 2014 annual conference the American Educational Studies

Association (AESA) and the International Association of Intercultural

Education (IAIE) will join forces to create a truly global community

of scholars in one of the most diverse cities in the world. Each

organization will follow a separate submission and review process that

will unite into one multinational, multilingual program.[1]

CONFERENCE THEME:

Reconceptualizing Diversity: Engaging with Histories, Theories,

Practices, and Discursive Strategies in Global Contexts

The American Educational Studies Association (AESA) and the

International Association for Intercultural Education (IAIE) are

presently accepting proposals for their joint conference

“Reconceptualizing Diversity: Engaging with Histories, Theories,

Practices, and Discursive Strategies in Global Contexts.” Together we

will provide a critical space for sociohistorical, political and

philosophical dialogues focused on reframing diversity within a global

context. In particular, we are interested in submissions that address

diversity as a multifaceted and dynamic idea as well as the structures

that transform, maintain, and reproduce the many intersectionalities

of identity. By focusing on colonialism, settler ideologies,

capitalism, and neoliberalism, among other related topics we can

resituate diversity in a global context. Turning to issues of

transnational immigration, cosmopolitan citizenships, and globalized

knowledge networks, we might find new approaches to equity and social

justice in education.

GENERAL CALL:

The AESA Program Committee for 2014 invites proposals on all topics

related to the broad field of educational studies including Social

Foundations of Education, its traditional scholarly domain. Proposals

may be submitted for individual papers, symposiums, panels, and

alternative format sessions through April 15, 2014. The committee

welcomes proposals from a full range of theoretical, disciplinary, and

interdisciplinary perspectives that include the following educational

emphases: social foundations of education, cultural studies of

education, curriculum theory and curriculum studies, comparative and

international education studies, and educational policy and

leadership. While all proposals of AESA quality are welcome,

especially encouraged are those that specifically address this year’s

theme, which will be highlighted in the program.

Submission deadline:

All proposals must be submitted electronically to the Online

Conference System (OCS) via the AESA website. It will open March 1,

2014 (5:00pm EST) and close on April 15, 2014 (11:59pm CST).

Participants are encouraged to plan ahead. Notifications of proposals’

acceptance or rejections will sent by July 15th, 2014.

ABOUT AESA

The American Educational Studies Association (AESA) was established in

1968 as an international learned society for students, teachers,

research scholars, and administrators who are interested in the

foundations of education. AESA is a society primarily comprised of

college and university professors and students who teach and research

in the field of education utilizing one or more of the liberal arts

disciplines of philosophy, history, politics, sociology, anthropology,

or economics as well as comparative/international and cultural

studies. The purpose of social foundations study is to bring

intellectual resources derived from these areas to bear in developing

interpretive, normative, and critical perspectives in education, both

inside of and outside of schools.

ABOUT IAIE

Since 1984 the International Association of Intercultural Education

(IAIE) has brought together educators and activists interested in

diversity and equity issues in education. This is defined quite

broadly, and includes among other topics, social justice, human

rights, pluralism in post-colonial, post-conflict and post-communist

countries, active citizenship, anti-racist education, migration and

indigenous minority issues, feminist and queer theory, bilingual and

multilingual language studies, ability studies, interfaith dialogue,

genocide and Holocaust education, and critical pedagogy. These topics

are also the focus of the organization’s Intercultural Education

journal, published 6 times a year.

SPE has a new website!   Go to: http://societyofprofessorsofeducation.wordpress.com  and see what our new webmaster, Kate Shively has put together for us. This new site was made easy by the work done by Jan Armstrong, the Society’s first webmaster. Our thanks go out to her for her years of work developing and maintaining SPE’s site. Thanks Jan for a job well done!  I’m told by our President, Jim Garrison, that you can even access the new site through the old webpage! Don’t ask me how, but he says it can be done!

Attached you will find a SPE call for papers for the 2014 meeting in Philadelphia (April 4-7, 2014). The call, put together by Jim, is an excellent way to get more members involved in the annual meeting. Please consider sending a proposal.

Finally, be on the lookout for a dues notice– if you are delinquent with 2013 dues. Its time to get caught up. For those who have paid within the last year you will be receiving our latest issue of Sophist Bane edited by Bill Schubert. So please send you dues and get our publications!
I hope school is going well for each of you as the Fall term begins, and I look forward to hearing from each of you in the near future. Keep in touch and have a good fall.
