For the 68th Meeting of the
SOUTHEAST PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION SOCIETY
and the 60th Meeting of the
SOUTH ATLANTIC PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION SOCIETY

We encourage you to participate in a joint meeting of the Southeast Philosophy of Education Society (SEPES) and the South Atlantic Philosophy of Education Society (SAPES) in Asheville, North Carolina, February 4-6, 2016. Given the substantial challenges facing educational institutions in general, and philosophical inquiry within and about them in particular, we believe it is increasingly important to create a space in which current and emerging scholars and practitioners can engage in meaningful dialogue and discussion. To that end, and building upon the long traditions of each organization in providing a friendly forum for conversations concerning philosophical ideas related to a broad variety of educational topics, SEPES and SAPES invite you to submit proposals for our first joint meeting….[[Download complete Call for Papers PDF below.]]

Proposals should be no more than 500 words, excluding references, and should be submitted online through the following link: http://tinyurl.com/sepes-sapes

The presentation time for papers is approximately 15 to 20 minutes, and presenters are responsible for bringing all required technology. THE DEADLINE FOR RECEIVING PROPOSALS IS NOVEMBER 1, 2015.  Please send all questions to sepesociety@gmail.com.

In other AESA news, there is a Call for Nominations of Members for the Committee on Academic Standards and Accreditation (CASA), reprinted below from the AESA Weekly Roundup.

Dear AESA Membership, The nominations committee will receive nominations for three available appointments to the Committee on Academic Standards and Accreditation

(CASA) until October 5. CASA is an advisory committee to AESA with the responsibility for maintaining and, when appropriate, updating, the Standards for Academic and Professional Instruction in Foundations of Education, Educational Studies, and Educational Policy Studies. The committee is also responsible for making professional educators aware of the Standards; educating foundations of education faculties regarding the use of the Standards, and gaining the support of accreditation and state departments of education in the general enforcement of the Standards. CASA members serve three year terms and the committee meets each year at the annual conference.

You can read more about CASA in our By-Laws,

Each nominee will be asked to submit a brief statement of interest in working with CASA by October 15. This information will be given to current CASA members.
