ISASH promotes the interaction between research and practice. Therefore, presenters are asked to describe how their findings apply to practice in the field. Oral presentations may describe local, regional, national, or international work. Presenters should follow accepted professional conference practices. This includes avoiding jargon; describing abbreviations of organizations, and using internationally recognized measurement units. The program committee will place oral presentations into breakout sessions with common themes. Presentation time is typically 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion.

Abstracts for oral presentations are due February 28, 2019 – abstracts that arrive after this date or that are not accepted as oral presentations will be considered for presentation as research or program posters. Authors of accepted oral presentations for completed research will be given the opportunity to also submit a technical paper to accompany their presentation. Please submit oral presentation abstracts using this link.

Panel/Roundtable Presentations. Authors may request a panel or roundtable session to discuss a broader topic that has particular importance for ISASH members. The Panel/Roundtable leader should submit one abstract for the session that explains the overall theme and lists all presenters involved in the presentation along with information regarding what each participant will be contributing. The duration of a Panel/Round-table session is typically one hour. Abstracts for Panel/Round-table oral presentations are due February 28, 2019. Please submit oral presentation abstracts for panels/round-tables here.

Educational Displays and Posters

Educational Displays. Educational displays are encouraged, highlighting a product or service that has interest/value for conference participants and ISASH members.

New Special Issue: Call for Papers

Queering the Academy

Given the socio-political climate that has diminished notions of truth, justice, and the value of education writ large, the academy has been under increased scrutiny to maintain the status quo. In preserving the status quo, or at least attempting to not make waves or catch the eye of critics, the academy continues to perpetuate dominant narratives of education which suggest a rigid understanding of scholarly praxis. Actions, scholarship, policies, or teachings that continue to prescribe to these dominant narratives, whether covert or overt, can (and often do) support patriarchy, racism, cis-heteronormativity, xenophobia, ableism, and other systems of oppression. As a result, there appears to be an increased need to rethink ways of doing things in an effort to break from unfair traditions that are well-known so that all people in the academy can be successful.

In an attempt to break away from the metaphorical chains of the status quo, in 2010, Renn called for an increased use of queer theory and its family of critical theories, as well as for work that queers the institutions and systems of (higher) education itself, including research design and methods. By way of an example, Renn asks: “What is more nonqueer than traditional doctoral education or the tenure system,” and points out that “faculty and students in interdisciplinary programs face more structural obstacles in the academy than do their colleagues in the ‘pure’ disciplines” (p. 132). Yet, despite these provocative thoughts, queering remains nebulous and even enigmatic to many students and scholars. The mystery lies in unclear definitions, methodologies and conceptualizations of “queer,” leaving scholars to ask: How is queering done? Who can queer? What forms does this work take?

After nearly a decade since Renn’s (2010) call to action to advance queer and queering work, JCTP seeks to understand how scholars and practitioners have responded and pushed back against antiquated ways of doing. As a journal that promotes critical thought and praxis, we envision the act of queering as a conscious act of doing things differently, challenging the status quo, or resisting dominant narratives that center already-privileged voices, methods, data, practices, or locations. Although queer scholarship might be connected to non-heterosexual identities, it is also work that “ultimately aims to interrogate and disrupt what is perceived as…normative structures within academia” (Miller & Rodriguez, 2016, p. xvi).

JCTP invites submissions for a special issue on queering the academy. We seek work that disrupts power dynamics amongst or between tradition and innovation. In particular, we encourage works that illustrate how queering can be done, thereby inspiring future critical scholars to look beyond the finite boxes into which they may have been socialized. We seek “any form of research positioned within conceptual frameworks that highlight the instability of taken-for-granted meanings and resulting power relations” (Browne & Nash, 2016, p. 4).We invite scholars and professionals from a range of disciplinary and professional positions to submit work (research articles, conceptual essays, or book reviews) that identifies ways that scholars are able to push back against dominant narratives and/or oppressive histories of education – inclusive of research, teaching, and practice.

We request works that attend to these central questions:

• What traditional line of scholarship (hierarchies, practices, etc.) are you resisting?

• In what ways are you up-ending the status quo in your field? What does that look like?

• How does your positionality influence what needs to be queered, or how you queer?

JCTP conceives of scholarship in the broadest sense possible to include not only research, but also teaching, service, advocacy, and other forms of praxis. We also conceive the academy to be inclusive of educational contexts across the P-20 spectrum and inclusive of any academic discipline.
