On behalf of the AERA Cultural-Historical Award committee, we are pleased to announce our 2021 Cultural-Historical Research AERA SIG award winners! For full announcement, click the following link.
These awards recognize our members’ scholarly contributions to research grounded in cultural-historical, sociocultural and activity theoretic approaches in the following three categories: Lifetime Contribution Award, Early Career Award, and Graduate Student Award. Two award winners were chosen for each award category to acknowledge innovative scholarship urgently needed in the midst of unprecedented crises and international struggles for justice.
All winners will receive a plague with an inscription to be presented at our SIG business meeting for AERA 2021. Award winners will also be invited to make a presentation at a SIG sponsored session at this annual meeting.
Thank you all who nominated candidates for our 2021 awards!
A huge thank you to our Award committee members!: Dr. Antti Rajala (Chair), Dr. Zitlali Morales, Dr. Aria Razfar, Dr. Alfredo Artiles, Dr. William Penuel, and Dr. Shirin Vossoughi.
Please note that the candidates nominated for these awards will remain in a pool of nominees for additional two years if they are not selected as Award Winners and if they still qualify to be nominated in the given category of awards.
