The deadline for submissions for the 2023 AERA Annual Meeting has been extended from July 27 to August 1. More

The AERA Second Language Research SIG solicits proposals for individual papers, symposia, and structured poster presentations aligned to the scholarly focus of the SIG and the 2023 AERA conference theme: “Interrogating Consequential Education Research in Pursuit of Truth.”  The SIG invites evidence-based and theoretical work that has not been previously published or presented that advances our collective understanding of how language education has historically been complicit in promoting agendas that reinforce systemic oppression (e.g.: assimilationist, colonialist, settler-colonialist, white supremacist agendas), and how language research can be part of the solution. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • second language learning/teaching and bilingual/multilingual development,
  • language education policy and teacher education,
  • sociocultural and political contexts thereof, and
  • epistemological, methodological, and ontological dimensions of scholarship in these areas.

The SIG particularly welcomes work that includes educational stakeholders outside the Academy as equals in the processes of inquiry, implementation, reflection, and dissemination.
