History & Historiography (F)
Welcome to the Division F Website

Division F is dedicated to the study and practice of history and historiography of education. We look forward to seeing all of you at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario. We anticipate an exciting program planned under the direction of Program Chair Judith Kafka and Vice President Christopher Span. Valinda Littlefield is planning a mentoring seminar for our graduate students and new professors. Stay tuned for more information on the conference.

Mentoring Opportunities

This year’s Division F Mentoring Seminar will be held in conjunction with the 2019 Annual Meeting. The mentoring seminar will address critical issues stemming from a shifting social, political and economic context that demands exemplary research, teaching and service from historians of education. This seminar will provide panel discussions led by distinguished leaders in the field. It will also place accepted applicants with a mentor to foster professional development and cultivate a lasting professional relationship.

If you are a graduate student or junior faculty interested in participating in the Division F Mentoring Seminar, please submit both a curriculum vitae and cover letter addressing the following components: 1) your research interests; 2) progress in your graduate program or your career path; and 3) how you plan to utilize the seminar for the advancement of your career. Please also indicate whether you have attended a Division F mentoring program before. You can email applications (and any questions) with the subject heading “Division F Mentoring Seminar Application” to Valinda Littlefield at littlevw@mailbox.sc.edu.

The application is due February 15, 2019 and participants will be notified by March 1, 2019. AERA will provide participants $100 to help defray travel and lodging costs. Spaces are limited.
