CALL FOR PAPERS
HISTORY OF EDUCATION SOCIETY, 2010 ANNUAL MEETING
50th ANNIVERSARY MEETING
The History of Education Society will hold its 2010 Annual Meeting in Cambridge, Massachusetts at the LeMeridian Hotel (20 Sidney Street, Cambridge, MA 02139) from November 4-7, 2010. This will be the 50th anniversary meeting of the Society, and in addition to the papers, sessions, and panel discussions as well as the opportunities to explore the educational heritage of the Boston area, organized by the Local Arrangements Committee, we are planning activities during the Annual Meeting in celebration of the Society’s history.
The Program Committee invites proposals on all topics relevant to the history of education in any time period or nation. The Committee defines “education” broadly, to include all institutions of socialization—mass media, voluntary organizations, and so on—as well as schools and universities. Proposals may be submitted for an individual paper, a complete paper session, or a panel discussion. A proposal for an individual paper spells out the paper’s focus and rationale; if accepted, this paper and others related to it will be combined into a paper session. A proposal for a complete paper session provides a prospectus for a coherent collection of three or four papers, including the names of the authors, a chair, and a discussant. A panel discussion is a session in which a group of qualified panelists discusses an important issue in the field, where the panelists are not presenting papers.
Proposals are due on or before February 16, 2010 (no later than 9:00 p.m., Pacific time).
Your proposal should either be a two-page proposal, single-spaced, describing an individual paper (references may be in addition to the two pages), or a four-page proposal, single-spaced, describing a complete paper session or panel discussion (again, references may be in addition to the four pages). Abstracts are not required for proposals. Each presenter must submit a one-page summary of his or her curriculum vitae. The proposal should include the following four elements: the topic, the theme, and an overview of the study or discussion; the findings or conclusions; the significance and how the work relates to other scholarship in the field; and the sources. Please do not exceed the page limits.
To submit a proposal, you will have to go to our proposal submission website. It is the same website used for the 2009 Annual Meeting (with a change of year in the address):
You will be asked to create an account. The simple prompts will then guide you in entering your proposal information, uploading your proposal, and providing some additional information. For an individual paper proposal, please eliminate any identifying information from your proposal before uploading it.
