ECER 2022 - Call for Proposals & Network Calls

The ECER 2022 Theme is 'Education in a Changing World: The impact of global realities on the prospects and experiences of educational research'. However, EERA welcomes contributions from the broad range of educational research.

In addition to the general call, some networks would like to encourage discussion on specific thematic topics and have therefore issued a special call. However, they will remain open for all other submissions within their area.

In order to submit to one of the NW Special Calls listed below, select the network first and then please ensure to choose the topic "NW XX Special Call" when you make your submission.

ECER 2022, Yerevan and ECER Plus - Call for Proposals

Network Special Calls

NW 04: Expanding the debate on inclusive education: How can we overcome competing tensions in the global education agenda?

Expanding the debate on inclusive education: How can we overcome competing tensions in the global education agenda?
NW 04 Inclusive Education

Through this special call, NW04 wants to foster scientific investigation and debate on the role that inclusive education can play in tackling exclusion and marginalisation of vulnerable students in challenging educational environments at all school levels. We see the Yerevan conference, with its new hybrid format, as an opportunity to broaden the debate and include scholars from all over the world, especially from countries that are usually not represented. The call is especially addressed to promote the organisation of collaborative sessions with the contribution of researchers from various European countries in the form of symposia, research workshops, and round tables on this topic.

NW 07: Intercultural Professionalism as Critical Reflexivity in the Research Process

Intercultural Professionalism as Critical Reflexivity in the Research Process
NW 07 Social Justice and Intercultural Education

Intercultural professionalism is most often referred to those who are engaged in educational practice; however, in this special call, our main focus is on scholars conducting research in the field of Social Justice and Intercultural Education. In this regard, we envision intercultural professionalism as critical reflexivity about our personal and professional histories and experiences, and about how our social positioning shapes research processes (Grant, 1999). This special call welcomes submissions on all educational research methodologies and methods, that share insights from research processes which reflect the scholars’ own involvement in a critical way.

Co-production of knowledge in health education and student wellbeing: engaging global disparities through collaborative research
NW 08 Health and Wellbeing Education

As actors in the field of Education deeply involved in knowledge production, we must continue to engage with a global perspective that incorporates a variety of understandings and promotes multicultural, transnational and inter-sectorial collaborations. Challenging the current prevailing power hierarchy in knowledge production and dissemination (Demeter, 2020) is necessary to enhance our capacity to efficiently inform policy and practices that target global health and wellbeing disparities. In line with the overarching thematic of ECER 2022, we welcome submissions that critically explore different forms of research partnership in health and wellbeing education aiming at bridging global and local approaches to health education and wellbeing.

NW 12: Open Science in Education

Open Science in Education
NW 12 LISnet - Library and Information Science

Open Science becomes more and more relevant as an umbrella term for several recent developments in educational research. While Open Science calls for the transparency of scholarship, its processes and outcomes, it offers the potential for educational research to strengthen its effects on education and the society at large by making its findings more visible and traceable. With this special call we invite participants to submit papers, symposia, research workshops, and round tables related to Open Science in Education to discuss a critical engagement.

Giving consideration to tensions between school-community specificities and global realities in educational research
NW 14 Communities, Families, and Schooling in Educational Research

Respecting the conference theme, ’Education in a Changing World: The impact of global realities on the prospects and experiences of education research’, ECER/EERA Network 14 invites contributions examining the tensions between the realities of school-community relationships, in particular those involving families and schools in the socio-educational development of the community, and the drive towards homogenization in education. For example: How can schools harmonize local and global perspectives throughout the curriculum and classroom activities? What approaches should educational researchers take to examine critically the tensions between the specificities of school-community relationships and global realities?

NW 17: Back/On to What, for Whom and Where? Historicising Ambiguous, Uneven Currents in Education from Situated Perspectives

Back/On to What, for Whom and Where? Historicising Ambiguous, Uneven Currents in Education from Situated Perspectives
NW 17 Histories of Education

Over the past three centuries, in reconfiguring worlds, education in its most diverse forms has been increasingly positioned as a key change agent, while, paradoxically, continuity has been shown to be at the core of its DNA. Histories of education have thereby increasingly highlighted “awkward knowledge”, or unwillingness on the part of education phenomena studied to stay within presupposed (e.g., national) borders, as well as “unevenness” of (i.e., diversity and inequalities across) education “space-times”. So, how to understand – through presents/futures past – commonalities and particularities of phenomena and change and continuity affecting current education? Back/on to what, for whom and where?

NW 26: Educational leadership during and beyond the pandemic

Educational leadership during and beyond the pandemic
NW 26 Educational Leadership

In this call for a symposium, we are asking participants to do two things. Firstly, to reflect on the experiences of educational leaders across the world as they responded to the impacts of the pandemic on education. Secondly, to consider the time beyond the pandemic, to think about how educational leadership is likely to be changed and explicate areas of potential for reimagining educational leadership in a post-COVID world. It is anticipated that participants will come from across Europe, and from several countries outside of Europe.

Teaching and learning under societal pressure. Didactics, societal demands and individual needs in a changing world
NW 27 Didactics - Learning and Teaching

This special call in Network 27 would like to explore more precisely the tensions that teachers and students face in the context of rapid societal changes and the emergence of new social and individual needs. We invite theoretical and empirical contributions from scholars whose work deals with the integration of political and economic demands, social and individual needs in learning and teaching at all stages of education, and with the impact of these societal requirements on conceptions of didactics, teaching practices, students´ interests and interaction in class.

NW 28: (Cross)Borders. Challenging, Decentring and Provincialising Sociologies of European Education

(Cross)Borders. Challenging, Decentring and Provincialising Sociologies of European Education
NW 28 Sociologies of Education

When is Europe? Where is Europe? What is Europe? This special call aims to challenge how European sociologies of education approach Europe as a political, normative and geographical entity and aims to problematize the Eurocentrism of the production of sociological knowledge. We welcome papers that challenge the positionality of Europe and of European sociologies of education by opening and crossing the borders of knowledges, disciplines and experiences. We invite papers that demystify and provincialise Europe, ‘European education’ and the current sociologies of education through critical perspectives.

The impact of global realities on the prospects and experiences of Organizational Educational research
NW 32 Organizational Education

The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the global interconnectedness of our world and the burning need to address our profound global challenges. Becoming increasingly connected across transnational, national, regional and local contexts, we still face marginalized parallel worlds. A Transition into a sustainable future needs to address social inclusion, global equity and sustainable value chains. The “great transformation” refers to any field of society such as healthcare, ecology, education, economy, etc. and implies an important role of organizations. Our network ‘Organizational Education’ welcomes papers on organizational and networked learning and change. Most appreciated are empirical papers, but also theoretical and methodological papers are welcome.

Education in a Changing World: The impact of global realities on the prospects and experiences of educational research
NW 33 Gender and Education

The Gender and Education Network welcomes submissions for papers, symposia, posters, panels, round tables, and other creative engagements that address any issues relating to gender and education. This special call aims to encourage submissions that increase our understanding of current and anticipated educational (in)equalities and that engage in informed speculation about future research needs and potential actions.

We need more comprehensive, in-depth, theorised comparisons of EU and nations regarding the current nature of (in)equalities of genders and sexualities so that such understandings can shape future research directions.

The many uncertainties facing European education systems generate threats and opportunities: climate change, technological acceleration, shifting geo-politics, fluctuating demographics, COVID are just some examples.
