9th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
EDUCATION AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

9-11 November 2019
Honolulu, Hawai'i, U.S.A.

Conference Partners and Hosts:
University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, College of Education
University Laboratory School

CONFERENCE THEME

Critical Conversations about Movement Building for Equity and Justice in Education

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

What does it mean, in this historical moment, to advance equity and justice in education as a form of movement building? How shall we critically examine even as we collectively imagine and dive into the paradoxes, the presumptions, and the promises of education as a public good and a core institution in a democratic society? The International Conference on Education and Social Justice offers a unique space for movement building around such questions as we highlight research, curriculum, and initiatives, develop innovative resources, build networks, and nurture hope. We aim to draw together educators from across Hawai‘i, the United States, and the world with diverse experiences and expertise alongside shared commitments and priorities. This 9th Conference focuses on fostering conversations about works-in-progress to develop our collective capacity to critically self-reflect, collaboratively theorize, and courageously build.

LOCATION

The conference will be held in Honolulu on the adjoining campuses of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, College of Education and the University Laboratory School. 

TRAVEL AND LODGING

Conference participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging. There will not be a conference hotel. Tips for travel and lodging will be posted by July 2019.

PROPOSAL GUIDELINES (please read thoroughly)

INVITATION: Proposals are solicited for 10-12 minute presentations (as well as groups of presentations) about works-in-progress – ranging from research and scholarship, to art, curriculum, and/or advocacy projects – on all topics related to the Conference Theme of "critical conversations about movement building for equity and justice in education." All educators, students, researchers and scholars, leaders, artists, and advocates who are working to advance education and social justice are invited to submit a proposal. 

DEADLINES: In order to guarantee consideration, proposal must be received via the online submission form (https://goo.gl/forms/mOz87ZvxVYdw4EiS2) by Friday, June 14, 2019. Notification of acceptance or rejection of proposals will be sent via e-mail by July. All presenters, including respondents, must register for the conference by the Early Registration Deadline in order to remain on the conference program.

ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES: Presenters may appear on only one proposal; however, a presenter may be listed as a "respondent" in a second proposal. If your proposal is accepted, your name, affiliation, and presentation title will appear in the conference program booklet. The Conference does not provide any audio/visual equipment or instructional supplies, so presenters wishing to use A/V equipment or other materials should plan to bring their own. Presenters are encouraged to distribute little or no handouts in order to protect the environment. Please note that the registration fee is on a sliding scale, and although presenters do not automatically receive fee waivers, they are eligible to choose from any of the fee options on the sliding scale (with one exception: all faculty, staff, and students of the University of Hawai‘i and the University Lab School receive complimentary registration).

THREE TYPES OF PRESENTATIONS (please select one):

1.     ROUNDTABLE WITH RESPONDENT: Proposals are solicited for 10-12 minute presentations about works-in-progress on which you wish to receive feedback and engage in a longer discussion with a smaller group than would happen in a panel session. Roundtable sessions will likely include one or two presentations per roundtable, and are tentatively scheduled to run for 45 minutes. Proposals are welcome to identify a respondent who will respond briefly to the presentation with initial feedback before facilitating a conversation with the other attendees; otherwise, the conference organizer will aim to assign a senior scholar-educator to serve as respondent. Proposals should identify the types of questions on which the presenter wishes to receive feedback.

2.     INDIVIDUAL PRESENTATION: Proposals are solicited for 10-12 minute presentations about works-in-progress on which you wish to receive brief feedback from the audience. Proposals should identify the types of questions on which the presenter wishes to receive feedback, but please note that, unlike in the Roundtables, respondents will not be assigned to panels. In order to accommodate as many presenters as possible, most conference sessions will consist of panels of 4 or 5 individual presentations (including yours) that the conference organizers will have grouped around common themes. Proposals of 2 or 3 individual presentations on a common theme will be considered, but will likely be grouped with other individual presentations to form panels with a total of 4-5 presentations.

3.     FULL PANEL: Proposals are solicited for full panels of 4 or 5 individual presentations of 10-12 minutes each on a common theme. Tentatively the sessions will run for 75 minutes, which should allow ample time for questions and conversations. Sessions are not required to have chairs and/or respondents, but proposals are welcome to include individuals to serve in these roles in addition to 4-5 individual presentations. Proposals should identify the types of questions on which the presenters wish to receive feedback.

PROPOSAL CONTENT: Proposals consist of the following items, and authors should note that incomplete or incorrect submissions may not be reviewed:

1.     PRESENTATION TYPE: Please select one: Roundtable; Individual Presentation; Full Panel. 

2.     TO PROPOSE A ROUNDTABLE: (a) Name, Job Title, Institutional Affiliation, and Email Address of you and any additional presenters; (b) Title and One-Paragraph Description of your presentation on a work-in-progress (please include the types of questions on which you want feedback, as well as citations and a brief bibliography); and (c) Optional: If you have already arranged for another conference attendee to be your respondent, please include their name, job title, institutional affiliation, and email address.

3.     TO PROPOSE AN INDIVIDUAL PRESENTATION: (a) Name, Job Title, Institutional Affiliation, and Email Address of you and any additional presenters; and (b) Title and One-Paragraph Description of your presentation on a work-in-progress (please include the types of questions on which you want feedback, as well as citations and a brief bibliography).

4.     TO PROPOSE A FULL PANEL: (a) Title of Overall Panel; (b) Name, Job Title, Institutional Affiliation, and Email Address of each presenter; (c) Title and One-Paragraph Description of each presentation on a work-in-progress (please include the types of questions on which you want feedback, as well as citations and brief bibliography); and (d) Optional: If you wish to include a chair and/or respondent for your panel, please include that person's name, job title, institutional affiliation, and email address.

The Proposal Submission Form is online at https://goo.gl/forms/mOz87ZvxVYdw4EiS2. Please note that you cannot modify your proposal once submitted, so we encourage you to write your proposal in a separate document and then cut and paste into the online form.

Deadline to submit proposals: Friday, June 14, 2019.
