Greetings, friends, from the Academy for Educational Studies:
We send you this message to invite you to submit a presentation proposal for the 10th annual Critical Questions in Education Conference to be held in two different locations this year:
- October 13th -- 15th, 2014 at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Deadline for proposals is July 1st, 2014.
- February 16th – 18th, 2015 at the U S Grant Hotel in San Diego, California. Deadline for proposals is November 1st, 2014.
Again this year, we think we have selected timely and provocative theme questions—though we still welcome proposals on one of our past theme questions. (See the Call for Proposals, attached, for a full list of topics.) Our 2014/2015 theme questions are:
Why have civil rights era educational legislation and policy in the United States failed our most vulnerable students?
How should we address the needs of these students in and out of school?
How is schooling conducted in other countries? What can we learn from the policies, purposes,
and practices of education systems—or individual schools—from around the world?
Presenters are encouraged to shape responses to these questions in any way they like. Please see the Call for Proposals for some suggestions on how these questions might be approached.
We hope you will submit a proposal and come join us this year—friends sharing some important talk about some provocative educational questions. We also hope you will share this Call for Proposals with friends and colleagues—and with any list-serves which might accept it.
If you have any questions about what the Academy has been up to, or questions about the conference, please feel free to contact me.

Service-Learning to Advance Social Justice
in a Time of Radical Inequality
Edited by Alan S. Tinkler, Barri E. Tinkler, Jean R. Strait & Virginia M. Jagla
We seek submissions to advance our understanding and knowledge of service-learning, particularly those that address social justice in a time of radical inequality. We are looking
for deep critical thinking and analysis in all submissions. In addition to theoretical papers, we desire submissions that employ methodological rigor. We seek to answer the question: How does service-learning work to advance social justice in a time of radical inequality? We intend to frame social justice by addressing three (overlapping) human concerns: 1) access to meaningful educational opportunity, 2) ability to earn a reasonable income and enjoy financial stability, and 3) opportunity for wellness, including access to health care. Submission Guidelines: Manuscripts should be single-spaced, Times New Roman 12 point, 15-30 pages, including references, and must follow APA Guidelines (6th edition). A separate cover page will include the author’s name, professional title, institutional affiliation, and all contact information (phone, fax, mailing address, email). Do not insert headers or footers into the manuscript. Number pages in the upper right hand corner. Tables and figures must be placed at the rear of the manuscript with notations where they should be placed in the body of the manuscript. Manuscripts must be
submitted electronically as Word documents to Alan Tinkler email@example.com.
Deadlines: Intent to submit a manuscript, including a working title and 100-150 word abstract, should be sent to Alan Tinkler firstname.lastname@example.org by July 15, 2014. Complete manuscripts are due by September 1, 2014. All manuscripts will be submitted to the volume’s editorial review board and
undergo blind review. Prospective reviewers for the 2015 volume, please contact Virginia Jagla at email@example.com
