(LGBTQ) issues in education

The American Educational Research Association (AERA) is undertaking
an initiative on research on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or
queer (LGBTQ) issues in education. AERA seeks assistance from
scholars and researchers across fields to map the state of knowledge
on LGBTQ issues in education. AERA aims to bring together research
from diverse theoretical frameworks, ecological perspectives, and
research methods in this work to assess what we know and do not know
about LGBTQ issues in education and educational contexts.
This initiative to examine the state of research on LGBTQ issues in
education has three components: (1) an extensive literature search
and review, (2) an intensive small research workshop of scholars to
be held in Fall 2010; and (3) this broad-based call for input and
ideas on LGBTQ issues in education. This call is a key element of
information gathering for the research workshop and ultimately for 
the research reports and publications that will follow. We seek
contributions from scholars and researchers whose work addresses
LGBTQ issues directly related to education (e.g., student experience
and perspectives, child/adolescent counseling, school violence) or
in adjacent research areas of relevance (i.e., identity formation,
LGBTQ families, workplace discrimination).
please provide your input and ideas - deadline Aug. 2, 2010
