Abstract Title: Fragmented divergence - Trends in PER topic selection
Abstract: The past decade has seen an astonishing rate of growth in the number of peer-reviewed PER publications. During this time some have come to see the PER field as "fragmented" and "divergent." By analyzing the literature published in PRST-PER and the PERC Proceedings since their inceptions, trends can be perceived in the research topics selected by PERers. I will discuss these trends in the historical context of PER work.
