AARE Oral History Project
The Australian Association for Research in Education is seeking to record accounts of its history from the perspectives of members who have built and shaped the Association. The AARE Executive is inviting foundation members, past presidents, and long-serving members of the AARE to participate in an interview about their career in educational research, the emergence of the AARE and its current role, and their observations of educational research in Australia more generally. These interviews will be available online for viewing by members of the Association and future researchers, and will contribute to a living archive of ‘stories of association’ about the AARE.
These interviews can be conducted in person or participants can record or write responses in their own time. There will also be opportunities for interviews to be held at the time of the AARE annual conference, which will take place in Fremantle later this year.
Professor Julie McLeod (Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne) co- convenes the History and Education SIG and is undertaking this project at the invitation of the AARE Executive; project and research assistance is provided by postgraduate student Ms Rosie Barron. If you are interested in ﬁnding out more about the project, would like to be interviewed, or have recommendations for people we should contact for interviews or for further information, please get in touch with either Julie or Rosie. email@example.com, (03) 8344 3455 firstname.lastname@example.org
Call for papers. Special Edition of Australian Educational Researcher
The Australian Educational Researcher is seeking submissions to a Special Issue to be led by Indigenous colleagues. While we do not intend to exclude non-Indigenous authors, we would like to emphasise that we are seeking articles that are led by Indigenous colleagues. The decision to use the term Indigenous is to ensure that it is inclusive of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Maori and Pacifika colleagues. For more information
