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 39th annual meeting of the Social Science History Association. The meeting will take place November 6-9, 2014, in Toronto, Ontario. 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, 2014.
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 2014 annual meeting is “Inequalities: Politics, Policy, and the Past.”
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:
- Education and Empire
- Subversive Knowledge and Its Transmission
- New Oralities and Literacies: Online Eucation and Social Media
- Science, Policy, and Inequality
- Alternative Sites of Knowledge Production
- Voices and Silencing in Education Policy
- Policy Evaluation and Policy Knowledge
- Tests and Measurements in Education
- Legal Frameworks for Knowledge Production
- Agnotology: The Making and Unmaking of Ignorance
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:
