This award will be presented to one graduate student in recognition of an outstanding paper presented at the 2016 Annual Bergamo Conference on Curriculum Theory and Classroom Practice. This award recognizes the innovative scholarship of one student whose work expands on this year’s conference theme of Curriculum Theory as It Stands by situating the present moment in curriculum studies within the context of the broader field of education—and beyond. The award encourages the participation of emerging scholars in promoting new ideas and welcomes all viewpoints in forming more transformative and reflective curriculum, theory, and practice.
Procedure: Interested graduate students should have already submitted a proposal to the conference. Proposals must be accepted for presentation at the October 2016 Bergamo Conference on Curriculum Theory and Classroom Practice. The completed paper must be submitted by 5 p.m. EST on Monday, October 10th via email to Isabel Nuñez at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions must be single-authored by the graduate student and may not exceed more than 20 pages (excluding references, tables, appendices). Names and university affiliation should appear only on a separate cover sheet for blind review. Papers must be in APA style. If no paper is identified that meets the criteria of the award, no awards will be given for this year.
Award: Publication in a future issue of the Journal of Curriculum Theorizing and recognition at the conference. Details regarding the specific issue of publication will be determined by the author of the winning paper and the editors of the Journal of Curriculum Theorizing.
