The journal Educational Theory and the Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, are pleased to announce a call for proposals for the 2017 Educational Theory Institute (ETI).


We want to keep the scope of possible submissions broad, but any submission should relate philosophical and/or theoretical perspectives to a prevailing issue of educational research, policy, or practice. This does not mean that only narrowly “applied” work will be considered. But the evaluation of the proposals will bear upon not only the quality of the papers as scholarly pieces; the salience and timeliness of the issues addressed will also be an important factor.

Length of Papers

Workshop drafts should range in length from 5,000–6,000 words, but final versions for publication shall not exceed 7,500 words, including notes.


Proposals are due by February 1, 2017. Please submit your prospectus by email to Applicants will be notified of the selection committee’s decision on February 24. The tentative dates for the Institute are October 6 – 9, 2017. Full details available here.

Please direct any questions to the Editor of Educational Theory, Chris Higgins (
