Call for Nominations: 2005 Sylvia Scribner Award
Carol D. Lee, Scribner Award 2004-2005 Chair

Deadline: February 1, 2005

Nominations are open for the Year 2005 Sylvia Scribner Award of Division C of
the American Educational Research Association. The award recognizes a
program of work that has significantly influenced thinking and
research in the field of learning and instruction. In particular, the
annual award is designed to honor current research (i.e., within the
last ten years) that represents a significant advancement in our
understanding of learning and instruction. The recognized work may
include but is not limited to research articles, paper series,
monographs, book chapters, media productions, and/or books. This
includes collaborative teams as well as individuals.

The work of the late Sylvia Scribner, for whom the award is named,
reflects a wide
range of research concerns within the field of cognition, learning
and education. Her research focused on the relationship between
cognition and culture. Her work involved innovative mixing of
methods, including ethnographic fieldwork and experimental
simulations of everyday cognitive tasks. Her work cut across
disciplinary boundaries, addressed multiple sites for learning and
development, and included older and younger learners.

Note: The recipient of the award need not belong to Division C, and
anyone may make a nomination, including a self-nomination.
