EECERA 2014
Call for Papers
Dear EECERA friends,

The EECERA 2014 Conference is taking place in the beautiful island of Crete in Greece from 7th – 10thSeptember 2014.

The conference theme ‘US, THEM & ME: Universal, Targeted or Individuated Early Childhood Programmes’ has been created to generate an active and participatory dialogue which focuses on quality, social justice and equity in early childhood education (ECE) programmes. Worldwide, the evidence is clear about the beneficial impact of quality ECE, economically, socially and educationally. It has been shown to have the capacity to open up possibilities and opportunities for all children for lifetime achievement and fulfilment. It has also been shown that poor quality ECE exacerbates inequalities. The 24th EECERA conference will explore this overarching theme through three perspectives:

1. Should ECE programmes be universally accessible and affordable to all?

This perspective explores the role and functions of ECE programmes within societies at different levels of economic development and wealth. What is the contribution of ECE to societal development and well being? What are the benefits of creating an open, accessible ECE system for all children and families, regardless of income or position? What might such a system look like and what should it offer? What is the role of the state in funding and regulating such a system? What is the contribution of Non-Government Organisations (NGO) or free enterprise markets in such a universal system? In an area where such an important lifelong contribution to human development and equality is made should ECE be universally available and, if so, of what should it consist? Who has a voice in these decisions and how far are they heard and with what response?

2. Should resource-rich programmes be targeted only at supporting those in greatest need?

This perspective explores how societies and communities address the issue of distributing ECE programmes during a time of scarce and diminishing financial resources. If ECE influences social mobility then how far should state funded ECE programmes focus only on those with the greatest need? Is ECE predominantly about ‘school readiness’ or more than that? Should intervention programmes focus on the ‘basics skills’, especially for those children, facing the greatest challenges? What place do intervention programmes across health, parenting and family support have to play in addressing these inequalities? Who participates in decisions about the deployment of scarce resources? Who are the beneficiaries and what do those who are targeted feel about their participation in such programmes? How far do those who are targeted have a voice in the process of their identification and participation in such programmes?

3. Is ‘quality’ in ECE a universal concept or should it be individuated to context, and adapted to accommodate different social and cultural constructs of childhood?

This perspective explores how far there can and should be a notion of a universal approach to ECE. As more evidence is accumulated about the conditions which optimise young children’s development and learning, how far can this knowledge be used to generate cross cultural ECE programmes which have universal application in different contexts and communities? Or does maturational, cultural and social diversity require individuated, differentiated programmes which can directly reflect local values, traditions and expectations? How are ECE programmes created and developed? Who is involved in the process of knowledge and system creation and whose voices shape priorities? Who has the knowledge about what works, is it universal and how is it controlled and disseminated?

Strands are:

Values and value education; Culture, community & society; ECEC contexts, transition & practices; Children’s rights, democracy & participation; Play & learning; Diversity & inclusion; Innovative/alternative approaches; Learning environment; Professionalism & teachers’ role; Leadership & quality; Curriculum & assessment; Paradigms, theories & methodologies; International research in ECEC.

Proposals can be submitted for:
Individual paper presentation: 30 minutes including discussion. Individual papers will be grouped into larger symposia by theme.
Self-organised symposium: groups may propose to organize 3 papers and a moderator around a common theme as a full session of 90 minutes including discussion. For self-organized symposium, please submit one abstract for each of the papers.
