The Network for Research in Jewish Education (NRJE) invites submissions for presentation at its annual conference, to be hosted by The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and The Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, at New York University, June 6–8, 2010.
Submissions are welcome from all those interested and involved in research in Jewish education, broadly understood to encompass quantitative and qualitative research (ethnography, case studies, narrative inquiry, surveys, philosophical, conceptual, theoretical, historical, etc.) on topics of relevance to Jewish education (subject matter, curriculum, teaching and learning, administration, policy, financing, teacher preparation, sociology, culture, identity, etc.) in any setting (schools, synagogues, camps, higher education, adult education, informal learning contexts, popular culture, etc.).
The conference will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in Jewish education to present and discuss current research. The program will include presentations of basic and applied research, in addition to practice-based research. Practitioners are encouraged to present projects of action research, self-study, or related forms of inquiry. Collaborations between practitioners and academic researchers are welcome.
Submissions must be received by January 15, 2010.
