We are excited to share with you a series of conversations that took place at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association Cultural Historical SIG Business Meeting in 2021. The three videos that will be released over the course of the next several weeks will showcase the CH SIG’s Board’s commitment to sparking intergenerational dialogue within our growing community. Last year, we invited a committee to select Awardees across three categories: the Graduate Student Award, the Early Career Award, and the Lifetime Achievement Award. The committee was led by the chair Dr. Antti Rajala, who worked with Drs. Shirin Vossoughi, Aria Razfar, Zitlali Morales, Bill Penuel, and Alfredo Artiles.
They selected the following awardees in each category. For the Graduate Student Award, Drs. Mike Rifino (CUNY) and Eddie Rivero (Berkeley) were selected. For the Early Career Award, Drs. Ramón Antonio Martínez (Stanford) and Dusana Podlucká (LaGuardia Community College) were selected. And, for the Lifetime Achievement Award, Drs. Yrjö Engeström (Helsinki) and Kris D. Gutiérrez (Berkeley) were selected. During our business meeting, we paired scholars across the three categories to engage in conversation about the future of cultural historical activity theory.
To continue these conversations, we invite you to participate in a shared annotation of the videos. As you watch the videos, you can create new threads of discussion at particular moments in the video.
