AERA 2015 - Education, Democracy and Justice: Transatlantic Perspectives

April 16 - April 20, 2015. Chicago, Illinois. Liasion office "ice - International Cooperation in Education": Call for papers for a German-American Seminar at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) focussing on the topic "Toward Justice: Culture, Language, and Heritage in Education Research and Praxis". Deadline Call for papers: November 11, 2014

For this reason, the liasion office "ice - International Cooperation in Education" will enquire as to how education and justice can be allocated to each other on both sides of the Atlantic. What relationships were thus formed in the past, how were these developed in different contexts and what approaches can be found in research today to assess ideas of “democratic” education and “justice” in education?

Further information on the 2015 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and details on the Agenda of the german-American Seminar "Education, Democracy and Justice: Transatlantic Perspectives" is available here.


More details on the German-American Seminar on the Website of the liasion office International Cooperation in Education.

We welcome contributions focusing on the topic outlined above, particularly if they already pursue an internationally comparative design (not required). The German and American participants may either give a presentation or discuss their research in small groups. In order to compile and coordinate the program, we request submission of a title and brief abstract (in English, half page) and information regarding the type of the research project. Together with the presenters we will decide on the kind of presentation that seems most appropriate (talk, poster, discussion in small group etc.). The seminar will be held in English.


Call for papers: Submission of title and abstract, information about the type of research project: November 11, 2014

Time and venue: Michigan Avenue, Chicago from April 16- 20 2015. Time and place of the seminar, which will be held in this setting, is subject to consultation with the AERA Committee – it will probably be announced in early 2015.

Costs: Ice will pay for room, technical equipment and refreshments during the seminar as well as AERA program fees. Participants are requested to pay for their own AERA admission fee, travel expenses and accommodation. We recommend early applications to relevant funding organizations. If necessary please ask us for certificates of attendance.
