Call for Proposals

Submissions are welcome from scholars, students and practitioners across the many disciplines that contribute to the study and practice of moral education, including psychology, education, philosophy, sociology, interdisciplinary, cultural and childhood studies, among others. Plenary sessions and invited symposia will address explicitly the conference theme. We encourage individuals to submit proposals that address the conference theme, although any proposals that address the study and practice of moral education more generally are welcome.

This will be a tri-lingual conference – presentations will be in English, Portuguese or Spanish! In order to warrant the participation of AME members from other continents, however, most symposia, papers and posters will be in English.

Symposia: proposal and presentation only in English (There will be some invited symposia in Portuguese and Spanish)
Paper: proposal and presentation in one of the three languages (70% of the program slots will be primarily reserved for English).
Poster: proposal and presentation in one of the three languages (50% of the program slots will be primarily reserved for English).
