[xmca] Symp. on research on work for AERA 2013

Mike, everyone --

I still hope to propose something.

It would be a symposium (and I would mark it as a potential roundtable) which means I'd need a roster of co-participants.  I would like it to focus on studies of work (work having a certain relevance to exits from poverty). I would prefer to make it a discussion and comparison of the efforts of researchers who have studied work (Sylvia Scribner, for starters -- I'm reading her studies of the assembly workers in the dairy plant -- but also Sawchuk, Lave, Billet, some people from Engestrom's outfit). I would like to see if there is any kind of historical development in the way work is researched. Of course, it would be great if the symposium discussion could come up with an agenda for researching work.

I'd appreciate some volunteers to go in on this and refine it with me.

I have been looking on the AERA website but can't see any place where it actually tells you how much registration costs.  Seems to me this information ought to be posted in a way that's easy to find. Any suggestions?

And I also had to smile when I saw that, if you paid full dues for 20 years and are now emeritus, you get a free membership!!!  This is definitely a hangover from the olden days when tenure-track and tenure was the norm and people could count on a 20-year career in a single job, ending with emeritus status. But there's no low-income membership rate for people who, having had many jobs, are now retired but not "emeritus" or whatever.

On Fri, Jun 29, 2012 at 1:01 PM, AERA Annual Meeting <annualmtg@aera.net<mailto:annualmtg@aera.net>>wrote:

Dear Members and Annual Meeting Participants,

This is to notify you that the deadline to submit a paper or session
submission for the 2013 Annual Meeting has been changed to Monday, July 23,
2012, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. This is a modification of the original July
22nd deadline in order to avert a Sunday submission deadline by moving the
deadline to the next business day.

The AERA Online Submission System remains available until 11:59 PM Pacific
Time on July 23rd for new submissions and for those who have already
advanced submissions and wish to reenter the system to further refine their
work. The submission deadline of July 23rd at 11:59 PM Pacific Time is a
firm deadline and will not be extended. Late submissions will not be

Login<https://www.aera.net/Membership/MyAERA/Login/tabid/11076/Default.aspx?returnurl=%2fMembership%2fMyAERA%2ftabid%2f11072%2fDefault.aspx> to
submit a paper or session submission.

The success of each Annual Meeting builds upon high quality submissions
advanced by AERA members, education researchers, and other scholars in
adjacent fields. Please review the Call for Submissions<http://www.aera.net/Portals/38/docs/New%20Date%20Call%20for%20Submissions%20AM13%20FINAL%20REVISED.pdf>and submit to divisions, SIGs, or committees which best fit your research.

Keep in mind that, paper submissions need to be in the form of complete
papers and not proposals. While submissions need to address all of the
elements for a paper, as set forth in the Call for Submissions, these
submissions do not need to be the final paper. Assuming acceptance, the
deadline for uploading the final paper is not until next spring. The
guidelines for paper and session submissions are set forth in the Call.

Please plan on submitting as soon as possible and in advance of the
deadline. Last-minute submissions on the final day and hours leading up to
the deadline can overwhelm the online submission system causing unnecessary
delay and inconvenience for submitters.

On behalf of AERA President William Tierney and 2013 General Program Chair
Kristen Renn, we hope that you plan on attending the Annual Meeting in San
Francisco (Saturday, April 27th – Wednesday, May 1st) and submitting your
best research for consideration on the program.
