“Disability Studies and Inclusive Education: Negotiating Tensions and Integrating Research, Policy & Practice ”
Michigan State University College of Education and The Special Education Research Group (SERG) will host the 6th Annual DSE Conference on campus, 18-20 May, 2006.
Disability Studies in Education (DSE) is a special interest group (SIG) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). For the last five years, this annual event has attracted researchers, professors, teachers, graduate students and other individuals who actively seek to change traditional theory and practice around disability within the fields of education and related interdisciplinary fields within social sciences, arts and humanities.
This year, the conference continues its custom of bringing together scholars, researchers, teachers, and agents of social change, all united through their interest in theorizing, politicizing, and reconceptualizing disability within the field of education. For more information on the theme for this year's conference, please refer to the proposal section of this web-site.
The DSE's legacy in honoring promising and significant research, as well as innovative practice within Disability Studies in Education continues with the inclusion of several highlighted conference features: The Senior Scholar Award, The Junior Scholar Award, a special session on the History of Disability Studies in Education, invited keynote speakers, and special entertainment. Conferees may also take time to participate in the East Lansing Art Festival, 20-21 May.
Thank you for submitting paper proposals for consideration. Proposals are due March 1, 2006 and the committee will be sending decisions by April 1, 2006.
