KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DARLENE CLARK HINE (MSU, NORTHWESTERN)
Is the Global Society producing revolutions in gender and race identities? This conference will seek to interrogate the social organization and cultural production of diverse gendered and/or racial identities, roles, objects of study, expectations and positionings within contemporary educational contexts. The conference will also seek to examine how the current economic crisis, the restructuring of educational institutions, the changing curriculum and the role of the federal government in education impact gender and race. Many critics of "late modernity" or the culture of globalized capitalism maintain that the current economic order maintains the social order which is as strongly delineated along gendered and racial lines as ever: in the US, for example, is a transformation and diversification of cultural institutions--especially educational institutions--occurring, or are we as restricted along class, gender and racial lines as ever?
Papers presented at the conference will be held to a strict 20-minute time limit.
