ISCHE 42 VIRTUAL

CfA: Re-Narrating ‘The Social’ #twISCHE42

Logo for twISCHE42

Early this year, ISCHE launched the ECR ISCHE Thinkering Initiative and invited ECR to imagine, innovate, and experiment with new ways of using digital tools for research in the History of Education. As a laboratory to explore and experiment with ideas, the ECR Thinkering Group has been developing ISCHE 42 events for Early Career Researchers in collaboration with the Local Organizing Committee.

In addition, and as a pre-conference for ISCHE 42, this group is organizing #twISCHE42: the first ISCHE Twitter conference!

In this first-ever ISCHE twitter conference, #twISCHE42 invites international researchers at all levels to “re-narrate the social” in histories of education and childhood. This unique conference format will see research papers “presented” through a series of tweets to reach a wider audience by going beyond traditional means of communication, exchange, and practice in the field of History of Education. These re-narrations will range from critical diagnoses of the contemporary to narrations that tread completely different paths and approaches, proposing unique, surprising, and unusual angles to give impetus to the research community.

#twISCHE42 will be held on June 11th 2021 on Twitter, and the Call for Abstracts is available here. For further information, please visit this conference’s official Twitter page @tw_ISCHE.
