SOPHE CALL FOR PAPERS AND CONFERENCE INFORMATION
PAPER and PANEL PRESENTATION PROPOSALS DUE BY SEPT. 1, 2023
SOPHE is an international conference that encourages and provides a forum for scholarship in the philosophical, historical, and social foundations of education, educational biography, pedagogical praxis, and the education-liberal arts nexus. For its scholarly presentations, SOPHE prefers argumentative, thesis-driven papers, clearly linked to larger philosophical, historical, and social issues concerning education (including higher education) as a social institution and the connections between education and the liberal arts including biography, history, literature, the sciences, and mathematics. Depending on focus of submissions, the program will have topical sessions that include philosophy of education, history of education, educational praxis, issues in education, and educational biography, among others. We invite proposals from scholars in colleges of education and arts and sciences, graduate students, and independent scholars.
Individual presentations should be timed to finish within the strict limit of TWENTY (20) MINUTES. Panel Presentations (three or more presenters) should be timed to finish in FIFTY (50) MINUTES.
Graduate student presentations are encouraged.
Proposals should be 200-300 word abstracts or summaries of the presentation. Versions of presentations may be submitted for publication in the refereed Journal of Philosophy and History of Education and may be up to 15 double spaced pages (4500 words).
