Call for Papers for the Education, Knowledge Production, and Science Studies Network of the Social Science History Association
The Education, Knowledge Production and Science Studies Network invites you to submit a paper, panel, roundtable, or poster proposal for the 40th annual meeting of the Social Science History Association. The meeting will take place November 12-15, 2015, in Baltimore, Maryland. For more information on the meeting and the full call for papers, please refer to the SSHA website: http://www.ssha.org.
The deadline for paper and/or panel submissions is February 14, 2015.
The members of the Social Science History Association share a common interest in interdisciplinary and systematic approaches to historical research, and many of us find the SSHA one of the most interesting and varied conferences that we attend. The thematic topic of the 2015 annual meeting is “Pluralism and Communities: Social Science History Perspectives.”
We welcome submissions on any topic of interest to scholars of education, knowledge production, and science studies. We are particularly interested in paper sessions that relate the larger theme of the conference to these topics. Possible topics might include, but are certainly not limited to:
- The Production of Knowledge and Ignorance
- Alternative Sites of Knowledge Production
- Legal Frameworks for Knowledge Production
- Disciplinary and Inter-disciplinary Policies and Practices
- Policy Evaluation and Policy Knowledge
- For-Profit Colleges and Universities
- Measuring School Failure: Measures and Metrics under NCLB
- Pluralism and the Politics of Common Core Standards
- School choice: Policy, Politics, and Community Outcomes
Please submit abstracts for individual papers or posters or complete panels at at http://www.ssha.org/conference-submission. The EKPSS network can co-sponsor panels, so please list any other networks with which your topic overlaps. Complete panels are particularly welcome, though we will do our best to place lone papers in a suitable panel. Contact a network representative directly if you are interested in proposing a book panel or a roundtable discussion.
If you have any questions or would like help connecting with others working on related topics, please contact one of the EKPSS network representatives:
