Call For Papers

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

AESA President-elect Roland Sintos Coloma (Northern Kentucky University) and the 2018 Program Committee are pleased to announce the theme for the 2018 Annual Meeting:

“Dare We Build a New Global Order?”

The AESA annual meeting will be held on November 7-11, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Greenville in Greenville, South Carolina.

The American Educational Studies Association (AESA) was founded in 1968 in the midst of major upheaval and change in the United States and across the globe. From protests against empire, war, and militarism, to demands for civil rights, economic reforms, and inclusive education, it was a turbulent period that fundamentally challenged the United States’ own foundations internally and internationally. The calls for social change took place in the classrooms and the streets, in legal courts and popular culture, in political conventions and the Olympics. Fifty years later, we confront similar realities and advocacies within the current context of neoliberalism and cosmopolitanism. The struggles against white supremacy, hetero-patriarchy, labor and class exploitation, ableism, environmental degradation, religious fundamentalism, nativism and narrow nationalism continue to marshal individuals and collectives for a future worth fighting for. In these struggles, both in the past and present, are the radical hope and promise of a sociality and polity underpinned by equity, intersectionality, justice, and love.

As AESA celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018 and projects its next 50 years, how do we pursue and engage in intellectual, pedagogical, and political projects that envision and enact a different global order? How do we analyze “America” and the tools and effects of its hard and soft powers, while simultaneously decentering it? In what ways can we situate our work as researchers, educators, and activists that locates the United States within transnational frames and the global flows of ideas, people, money, and technologies? How do we resist the audit culture of standardization, testing, and ranking and the commodification of critical knowledges at local, national, and global scales? What can we learn from ontologies, epistemologies, and methodologies from below and elsewhere, from the margins and the borderlands, from the Indigenous and the migrants, from those considered non-normative, illegible, or disposable? What happens when we create and employ a different grammar of critique, transformation, and possibility? What kind of future might we build together, and what difference might this difference make?

We invite panel, interactive workshop, and individual paper submissions on a wide range of topics that may include, but are not limited to, the annual meeting theme.

Submission Process and Timeline:

  • Submit electronically via AESA website (www.educationalstudies.org) to All Academic Inc.
  • Submission will be open from March 1, 2018 to May 1, 2018 (11:59 pm PDT)
  • Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent by August 1, 2018
