January 2020

In April, AERA will release a new groundbreaking volume: Advancing Knowledge and Building Capacity for Early Childhood Research, edited by Sharon Ryan, M. Elizabeth Graue, Vivian L. Gadsden, and Felice J. Levine. The book, which will be available at the AERA exhibit booth at the 2020 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, will be the focus of an AERA symposium at the conference. The table of contents can be viewed here.

The volume emanated from a 2015 conference at the AERA headquarters: “Advancing Knowledge and Building Capacity for Early Childhood Research: Creating Synergies Among Segregated Scholarly Communities.” The conference examined the state of the knowledge, identified critical research areas, considered promising research designs and methodologies, and assessed capacity-building needs and potential approaches to innovative collaborations. The participants explored the state of early childhood research, links to policy and practice, and the interplay of the two.

The volume, which includes 12 chapters along with an introduction and conclusion, builds on the work of the conference and employs a multidisciplinary approach to research on early childhood development and education. In their introduction, the editors note that the book aims to “reflect how scholarly perspectives shape the contours of knowledge generation.” They hope that the book will “illuminate the invisible gaps that prevent productive interchange among scholars who value equity in the opportunities available to young children, their families, and teachers/caregivers.”

The volume will be available for advance purchase on the AERA website in March, and will be available in print, eBook, and print/eBook bundle formats.
