Dear CAE folks:
First, Happy New Year! Hope 2013 is off to a great start.
It’s time to start thinking about AAA 2013!
First, if you have not already volunteered to review proposals, please consider helping us in this important role. Just send your name, email address and phone number to me: firstname.lastname@example.org. It would also be helpful to know your area(s) of specialization, and what committee(s) you are affiliated with in CAE (if any).
Next, here are important upcoming proposal deadlines, and some things to think about as you prepare your papers and panels.
*February 6: Executive Session Proposals due*
Executive Session proposals are sessions that are sponsored by AAA and that have wide appeal across several subfields of anthropology. It’s best to have more than one subfield or section represented by key participants in the panel.
*February 15: Online abstract submission system opens for all proposals*
*March 15: Invited Sessions deadline*
Invited sessions will be reviewed by CAE executive committee members. We are looking for sessions that are particularly innovative and cohesive, and that contribute to advances in knowledge, practice, and educational change.
These may involve both new and established scholars. Last year we had 16 submissions; we normally get no more than 2 slots for invited sessions on the program. Any invited session proposal that isn’t invited will
automatically roll over into the regular session proposals.
April 15: Proposal deadline for all regular sessions*
You may submit proposals for individual or panel presentations, in paper or poster form, or special events. See http://www.aaanet.org/meetings/index.cfm for more detail. We hope you’ll use the list serve to dialogue with each other as you develop ideas for panels.
NOTE: I know the submission process can be confusing, especially for new members. This list serve can be a place to get questions answered, or you can email me with any questions you may have.
We are hoping for proposals that take the CAE mission statement to heart:
The mission of the Council on Anthropology and Education is to advance anti-oppressive, socially equitable, and racially just solutions to educational problems through research using anthropological perspectives, theories, methods, and findings.
The Council advocates for:
- Research that is responsive to oppressed groups.
- Research that promotes practices that bring anthropologists, scholars from other disciplines, and educators together to promote racial and social justice in all settings where learning takes place.
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago next November!
