Hi Dear All,
Just to add to Aria’s call for volunteers for our SIG (Cultural-Historical Research ) at AERA – we really depend on your good will to volunteer to be a reviewer for our SIG.  This year in Washington we’ve had a very successful AERA, mostly thanks to our volunteers who served as peer reviewers and, of course, our wonderful presenters.  We would like to build on our success for the next year.  Please, join us! The deadline is near, May 11, 2016. 

You can find the details of signing up to be a reviewer here:  

Call for Volunteer Reviewers
Deadline to Sign Up: May 11, 2016

The American Educational Research Association (AERA) is seeking volunteers to serve as peer reviewers for submissions for the 2017 AERA Annual Meeting. A quality peer review system is the bedrock for a quality annual meeting, and thus we encourage persons with depth of research expertise to volunteer to review and respond to this call.

Panel Reviewer Selection Criteria
Review panels will be constituted to be inclusive of well-qualified researchers knowledgeable across the span of research topics, methods, and modes of inquiry likely to be considered by a submission unit. The criteria for invited panel reviewers include such considerations as:
(a) experience in some form of peer reviewing, 
(b) service on other professional review panels,
(c) knowledge of the field,
(d) scholarly productivity or roles that require research expertise,
(e) knowledge of the emerging literature, and
(f) broad knowledge of a range of researchers and research specialties in an area.
Graduate students may be invited to serve as panel reviewers. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers and may be reviewed by a graduate student or students serving as additional reviewers. All reviews, including graduate student reviews, will be provided to submitters, although graduate student review scores are not included in the scoring calculations. When graduate students are serving as panel reviewers, the unit program chair is encouraged to incorporate a plan to provide feedback and mentoring to graduate students to enrich the educational value of this experience.

Please, let me or Aria know if you have any additional questions about it.

Cultural Historical Call for Proposals

AERA 2017


When AERA was founded a century ago, Lev Vygotsky was 20 years old and on
the brink of a decade of prolific work leading to discoveries that would
(eventually) shake up Western psychology and education and would reshape how
learning, development, culture, play, language and the relationship between
all of these are understood. While it took over 50 years for those
discoveries to make it to the United States, Vygotsky's theories (and those
of his colleagues) are now some of the most utilized frameworks for
innovations in education in formal and informal settings. In that time,
Vygotsky's original work has given birth to a wide range of theories and
practices, including Socio-Cultural, Cultural-Historical, Activity, and
related critical and post-modern approaches, all of which are represented by
the Cultural-Historical Research SIG. 


The CHR SIG of AERA is therefore calling for proposals for the 2017 Annual
Meeting that represent the breadth and relevance of Vygotskian,
Socio-Cultural, Activity and related theory, research and practice for
education in the 21st century. We are particularly seeking proposals that


.             The diversity of approaches that fall under the umbrella of
CHR, including, socio-cultural, Marxist, activity, and arts-based and
postmodern approaches. 


.             The relevance of Vygotsky for innovations in education that
offer creative responses to the ongoing education "crisis" in the US and
around the world


.             The range of methodologies that utilize CH approaches,
including mixed methods, action research, arts based research, and
performance studies. 


.             The diversity of fields and settings in which CH theory is
used and to which it is applicable (i.e. early childhood, outside of school,
STEM learning, literacy, adult learning, ELL).


.             Proposals that explore the past, present and future of CH


.             Proposals that address the intersections of CH theories with
critical theories that include, for example, focus on relations of power,
activities that create the "Other," and sources of oppression.
