Arts & Learning SIG

Outstanding Achievement in Arts & Learning Award

The Arts & Learning SIG Awards Committee invites entries for the annual Outstanding Achievement in Arts & Learning Award. The award will be presented at a business meeting of the A&L SIG at the Annual Meeting of AERA.

CRITERIA

The award will be presented annually to scholars whose collected body of work has made a substantive contribution to the field of Arts and Learning, as evidenced through publication, presentation of scholarly work at academic and professional conferences, and, when appropriate, supplementary creative work related to the scholar’s research.

ELIGIBILITY

Nominees must have developed a body of work that has made a substantive contribution to the field of Arts and Learning. Nominees may be at any stage in their career; this is not intended as a lifetime achievement award (though senior scholars are eligible to receive it). Membership in AERA and the SIG

is not required to be nominated or to be a recipient of an award.

NOMINATION PROCESS

Nominators should submit the following items to the A&L Awards Chair:

  • The nominee’s curriculum vitae
  • A one-page letter explaining why the nominator feels the nominee is an excellent candidate for the award.

The Awards Chair will compile the nominations and facilitate the review process.

Nominators should e-mail the documents to Sarah Travis, AERA A&L SIG Awards Chair: stravis2@illinois.edu.

REVIEW PROCESS

The award committee will consist of three members of the Arts & Learning SIG, selected by

the Awards Chair. The jurors will assess the collected body of work of each nominee, considering if each nominee has made a substantive contribution to the field of Arts and Learning. Evidence of such a contribution may take the form of publications, presentation of scholarly work at academic and professional conferences, and, when appropriate, supplementary creative work related to the scholar’s research.

DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS

The deadline for nominations is November 1, 2019.

CORRESPONDENCE

All related correspondence should be sent to Sarah Travis, AERA A&L SIG Awards Chair: stravis2@illinois.edu

AERA Arts & Learning SIG

Distinguished Dissertation Award

The Arts and Learning SIG Awards Committee invites entries for the annual Distinguished Dissertation Award. Papers based on the author’s recently completed dissertation will be considered. The award will be presented at a business meeting of the Arts & Learning SIG at the Annual Meeting of AERA.

CRITERIA

The award will be presented annually to the scholar whose work is of importance to Arts & Learning SIG members, and in the opinion of the A&L Awards Committee, bears the hallmarks of integrity, quality, depth of knowledge, style and significance to the field.

ELIGIBILITY

The competition is open to all recent doctoral degree recipients whose dissertations were accepted during the 3 years prior to the AERA Annual Meeting at which the award will be presented (i.e., dissertation completed 2017 through 2019 for the 2020 award). Membership in AERA and the SIG

is not required to be nominated or to be a recipient of an award.

SUBMISSION PROCESS

The following items should be submitted to the Awards Chair:

  • A 1,000-1,250 word extended abstract of the dissertation that clearly addresses the Objectives, Perspectives/Theoretical Framework, Methods/Modes of Inquiry, Results, and Scholarly significance of the study. (Note that these are the same requirements necessary for an AERA paper submission).
  • The author’s name and affiliation should appear on a separate cover page, and only on this page, to ensure anonymity in the reviewing process, along with their snail mail address, their phone number and their e-mail.

Finalists will be asked to submit a blinded manuscript of the complete dissertation.

E-mail the documents to Sarah Travis, AERA Arts and Learning SIG Awards Chair: stravis2@illinois.edu.

Manuscripts are accepted for consideration with the understanding that they are original material.

REVIEW PROCESS

The award committee will consist of three members of the Arts & Learning SIG, selected by

the Awards Chair. The committee will review all materials submitted for round 1 review and identify the strongest 2-3 submissions to move on to the second round of review (full dissertations). The committee will review these in full and then determine if an award should be given and, if so, to which candidate(s).

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS

The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2019.

CORRESPONDENCE

All related correspondence should be sent to Sarah Travis, AERA A&L SIG Awards Chair: stravis2@illinois.edu
