About RECE

Reconceptualizing Early Childhood Education (RECE) is dedicated to facilitating exchanges about work that challenge mainstream ideas regarding how young children learn and grow. In theory and in practice, RECE members question universal assumptions that mask the realities of local contexts and conditions.

Nominations sought for the

Rhedding-Jones Outstanding Dissertation Award 2021

The Rhedding-Jones Outstanding Dissertation Award is awarded annually to a graduate doctoral student in recognition of a doctoral thesis that makes a significant contribution to Reconceptualising Early Childhood Education.

 

The Rhedding-­‐Jones Dissertation Award has been developed in honor of Jeanette Rhedding-­‐ Jones (1943-­‐2013) who mentored doctoral students and early career researchers across many countries. She encouraged and inspired young academics to reimagine early childhood methodologies and practice, and to push the boundaries of early childhood research, teaching, policy and pedagogy.

The award will be considered for those graduates who have completed their doctorate in the period between September 2020 and 31 September 2021. Active engagement with both the RECE conference and the field of early childhood education will be taken into account.

• Nominations should be sent by 30 September 2021
