Tuesday 23 to Friday 26 April 2013
Hosted by the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research at London South Bank University
The ninth international Gender and Education Association conference, Compelling Diversities, Educational Intersections hosted by the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research, engages with key debates surrounding the interplay between dynamics of education, work, employment and society in the context of crisis, upheaval and cutbacks, which reconfigure axes of intersectional inequalities. In considering diversity in education, this conference will explore the relationship between new equality regimes and continued educational inequalities, exploring organisational ambivalence, change and resistance. It will ask important questions about the role of feminist research at a time when education, and its variously placed subjects (academics, pupils, students, and policy makers), wrestle with the commitments and contentions in doing diversity and being diverse. We would welcome proposals for papers, workshops and symposia from academics, teachers, practitioners and policymakers. Papers addressing the following themes would be most welcome:
The deadline for submissions is 12th November 2012.
