Eligibility: Students with an interest in educational politics and currently enrolled in graduate schools in the U.S. or abroad are welcome to attend as are educational researchers who earned their doctoral degrees after March 1, 2019. There is no fee to attend, but space is limited. Applicants whose research interests are not clearly tied to education politics will not be accepted. The opportunity to submit an application will end February 21 at 5:00pm (EST) or when we reach maximum capacity.
Call for Mentors: The Politics of Education Association and the University Council for Educational Administration invite its members to serve as mentors to current doctoral students and/or recent doctoral graduates. The Boyd Workshop aims to connect doctoral students and recent graduates with mentors in order to share their expertise and experiences in the discipline. Please note that volunteering will require attendance at a 2 1/2 hour workshop held on the first afternoon of AERA’s annual meeting in San Francisco, California (USA). If you are interested in serving as a mentor, please complete the electronic form found at the link below—even if you have served as a mentor at previous Boyd Workshops. Doing so confirms your willingness to serve as a mentor in San Francisco in 2020.
