Peace Education SIG, AERA: Call for Papers

San Francisco, California, April 27 – May 1, 2013

(Proposal Submissions Accepted: June 1 through July 22, 2012)

The Peace Education Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association warmly invites you to submit a proposal for the Annual General Meeting of the American Educational Research Association in San Francisco, California April 27- May 1, 2013. The theme of the conference is "Education and Poverty: Theory, Research, Policy and Praxis." Read about the conference theme at this website:

The purpose of the Peace Education Special Interest Group (SIG) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) is to create a global forum for scholars from diverse backgrounds and with varied perspectives to critically explore educational research and promote constructive changes in the areas of peace keeping, peace making, peace building, peace education, nonviolent conflict resolution, reconciliation, mediation, and more. Our work often addresses compelling, complex and politically charged topics and is informed by both sophisticated and sensitive analyses. Consequently, we welcome innovative as well as traditional theoretical and methodological approaches to research, and we encourage collaboration among members.

We welcome research papers from a very wide range of conceptual, methodological, experiential and international perspectives that represent theoretical advances; that analyze the complex social, cultural, political, historical and economical contexts within which peace education develops; that heighten individual and collective consciousness and inspire transformative practice to more effectively connect education and peacebuilding and further the institutionalization of peace education. We encourage you to indicate in your proposal your engagement with the peace education literature and to clearly demonstrate the wider lessons that can be learned from your particular context. We particularly welcome papers that draw on interdisciplinary research data and that reflect the conference theme of education and poverty.

Proposals should be submitted through the AERA proposal submission system ( and identified as for the Peace Education Special Interest Group.

Full instructions for submission are available on the AERA website. If you have any further questions about this Call for Papers please contact the Program Chair, Candice Carter:
