Call for papers
The organisers are interested in all aspects of educational research that address the broad theme of social justice and
educational improvement. As the conference is partly hosted by the English Education SIG in association with NATE
then any aspect of work in English is welcome including, for example, related areas such as Applied Linguistics, TEFL and English Literature. Papers that address issues in teacher education and interdisciplinary aspects of research are also welcome. We are especially interested to offer opportunities to teacher researchers, Masters and PhD students. Papers will be grouped into sessions with 3 or 4 papers that have some common theme or topic. The call for papers will be open until 30th May.
Each proposal should provide a title, up to 25 words, a 250 word abstract [excluding references] and five keywords. All proposals will be peer reviewed and decisions communicated by 15th May to all papers submitted by then, later papers will considered until 30th May and decisions communicated by 6th June. For informal discussion about proposals and advice, please email Professor Andy Goodwyn
