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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
