The 26th AHRD annual conference will include leading scholars and practitioners reporting their cutting-edge research and theorizing. The program will be comprised of blind, peer-reviewed submissions that offer a diverse range of topics, perspectives, and research paradigms. In addition, the conference will include several types of non-refereed sessions that provide excellent opportunities for bringing together conference participants to engage in generative learning through both formal and informal interactions about topics of mutual interest. AHRD is an inclusive organization and invites all those who are interested in the field, no matter where they are on their scholarly journey.
In addition to the information contained in this Call for Papers, important details are found on the Conference Central page. The Conference Central site will be your go-to location for news about conference updates, pre-conference workshops, hotel and travel information, access to the program (available January 2019), and registration. Information about the benefits of AHRD membership—including journals, on-line networking, Special Interest Groups (SIGS), professional development, awards, and other events, including the conferences in Europe and Asia–MENA—can also be found on the AHRD website.
We are now accepting submissions for consideration. Review the Call for Submissions (PDF) for full details. The submission system is accepting submissions until September 5, 2018 (11:59 p.m. PST).
