Speak the Truth and Expose Lies: The Responsibility of Professors of Education in Hard Times
SPE 2018 Call for Proposals (Due 1/13/18)
As Spiderman’s Uncle Ben told us, “With great power comes great responsibility.” While it’s arguable whether his advice applies to professors of education, the Society’s conference theme for this year draws on Noam Chomsky’s reminder that even our limited power as intellectuals does come with responsibility. We invite you to join the conversation about what those responsibilities might entail in these difficult times.
What does it mean to be a professor of education in the current climate? How can we nurture in our students and ourselves the bravery that will allow us to face today’s challenges? What is the value of work in education as contrasted (or in collaboration) with other disciplines? How can scholars work more closely with teachers and other educational practitioners? How can we build bridges to other communities? What are our responsibilities for advocacy?
The Society of Professors of Education (SPE) invites proposals for presentations at its annual meeting, to be held during the 2018 AERA Annual Conference in New York City from April 13th to 17th. We are especially interested in presentations that are focused on the theme of “Speak the Truth and Expose Lies: The Responsibilities of Professors of Education in Hard Times.” Proposals not related to the theme but focused on the goals of the Society (below) are also welcome.
Founded in 1902, the Society of Professors of Education is a professional and academic association open to all persons engaged in teacher preparation, curriculum studies, educational foundations, and related activities. The Society’s primary goal is to provide a forum for consideration of major issues, tasks, problems, and challenges confronting professional educators. SPE is an interdisciplinary organization. Its members include both scholars and practitioners in education.
All presenters must be members of the Society of Professors of Education in order to be included in the conference program. We encourage you to join the Society at your earliest convenience. You will find a membership form at the Society of Professors of Education web page at:

Proposals must be submitted electronically to the Program Chair Jason Lukasik no later than January 13, 2018. The proposal must be sent as a Word document attachment in an e-mail addressed to SPEsubmissions@gmail.com. The subject line of the e-mail message must read: “SPE 2018 Proposal.”

The cover sheet will not be sent to proposal reviewers. Except for the cover sheet, the proposal must not contain any information that identifies participant(s).

From Linda-Hoeptner-Poling –
Dear Friends, Supporters, Colleagues of the NAEA Women’s Caucus
We have extended the deadline for receiving abstracts to our call for abstracts to OCT 1, 2015. We hope that you will submit an abstract of a chapter proposal and forward this note to colleagues to encourage proposal submissions.
CALL FOR CHAPTERS — Women’s Caucus Lobby Activism Book
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: October 1, 2015
EDITORS: Karen Keifer-Boyd, Linda Hoeptner-Poling, Sheri Klein, Wanda Knight, and Adetty Pérez de Miles
ABOUT THE BOOK: The book is based on the National Art Education Association’s Women’s Caucus Lobby themes and activism since 2008.
NOTE: Authors do not need to have attended Lobby sessions to submit chapters. Beyond the NAEA Women’s Caucus sessions, meetings, and events that reside within the formal protocol of the NAEA, the Lobby Activism session serves as an informal space for personal as political discussion and action. Held the first evening of the NAEA Convention in the hotel lobby, since 2008, the one-hour open forum has evolved into a multi-modal form of engagement, including introductions, performance, artmaking, brainstorming and synthesizing ideas–as well as planning collaboratively for future action. A human microphone process used throughout the lobby amplifies our political voice in public feminist art pedagogy.
Lobby Activism book contributors might share their experiences as participants in each year’s Lobby Activism session. Contributions on lobby session influence, impact, theory, and possibilities are also encouraged. However, in each of the ten book sections we would like to extend beyond the Lobby Activism Sessions and encourage submissions that are about the themes. Therefore, authors from a range of disciplines, theoretical perspectives, and not having participated in the Women’s Caucus and Lobby Sessions are also encouraged to submit chapters.
BOOK CHAPTERS: The 10 sections of the book are formed from the annual themes of the Lobby sessions Diversity of approaches to scholarship relative to the book sections are encouraged.
See http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/lobby-activism/ for suggestions for writing chapters or visual essays for one or more of the ten sections of the book, briefly outlined below. as well as photos and prompts/data/inspiration for the sessions and transcripts of audio recordings from each Lobby Activism session. As noted above, authors do not need to have attended Lobby sessions to submit chapter proposals.
2018: Activism: This section will include narratives of feminist activism through art and education.
2017: Entanglement. This section of the book revisions intersectionality theory as an entanglement of social identities and circumstances that hampers one’s ability to escape, disengage, or act at will, and activism that changes.
2016: Feminist Leadership. This section will include chapters on feminist leadership in art education in which art teachers are instrumental in transforming schools and communities.
2015: How do you (re)deSIGN gender codes in your teaching, art, and life? This section of the book will include explorations that (re)deSIGN binary-based constructions of gender in research, teaching, art, and life.
2014: Speak Truth to Power. This section will include case studies of speaking truth to power through art and/or art education.
2013: What are my personal responsibilities and our collective responsibilities to end violence? This section explores ways that art educators can disrupt systemic violence through pedagogy, service, community work, activism and other forms of resistance.
2012: What Do You Believe is Critical to Lobby For? This section explores how and why feminist art educators decide where to put activist energies both in and outside of the classroom at all levels of education, in addressing competing demands posed by issues of both personal and broader social landscapes of feminist activism.
2011: A Time When … This section of educational narrative inquiries will focus on how feminist art teachers’ conceptualize their work and navigate the personal, professional, pedagogical, and political.
2010: What is the Image of a Feminist in the Field of Art Education Today? This section will explore aims of feminism and feminist pedagogy in art education for contemporary times.
2009: Enacting Change: What We Can Learn From Each Other? This section focuses on mentoring, reciprocity, dialogue, and networking.
2008: Vote: What Should an Art Educator Do?” Visual culture is omnipresent and plays a role in our everyday decisions from the products that we consume to important decisions such as presidential elections.
