2023 AERA Annual Meeting Call for Submissions

A reminder for folks who might be interested in presenting at this meeting.

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to officially inform you that the AERA 2023 Annual Meeting Call for Submissions opened earlier this month on the AERA website. We encourage you to consider a paper or session submission to a division, special interest group (SIG), or committee that best aligns with your research interests. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM, Pacific Time, on July 27, 2022.

The 2023 Annual Meeting is dual component: place-based in Chicago, Illinois and on a virtual platform. When you advance a paper or session submission, you will also indicate whether you wish your paper or session, if accepted, to be presented in-person in Chicago or virtually. Both components of the meeting will offer participants rich opportunities to present their work and network with attendees.

The overall theme is “Interrogating Consequential Education Research in Pursuit of Truth.” We hope that you will consider a submission in response to the Call. The theme advanced by AERA President H. Richard Milner, IV, and Co-Chairs Lori Delale, Mark Gooden, and Ebony McGee, invites AERA members and other Annual Meeting attendees to push the boundaries of ideas, methods, and collaborations to achieve innovations and novelty in studying and advancing quality consequential research.

We are looking forward to creating an Annual Meeting that will attract broad participation worldwide. This meeting will provide an opportunity to share research, assess the state of our knowledge, and explore how our work can become more relevant to diverse communities, publics, practitioners, and policy makers.

Please submit and join us in April 2023 in Chicago or virtually.

Cordially,

Felice
