The Department of Educational Leadership at Miami University is pleased to announce the 12th Annual Graduate Student Conference on Leadership, Culture, and Pedagogy, to take place at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, on Saturday, February 18 2012. The theme for this year’s conference is: Education and Global Struggles: Reimagining Education to Save the World. For this conference, we are interested in proposing a panel focusing on Educational Initiatives that stem from – but certainly not limited to – the Black Arts Movement, Civil Rights Movement, Gay Rights Movement and etc. Especially looking for submissions on Black educational topics that include a critical analysis of: how movements can (or did) influence a socially just curriculum, agenda, and etc.; what role our current educational structures play in educating students ‘in’ or ‘out’ of their creativity; how culture, power, identity, ethics, and other issues of social justice in education can be interrogated through revolutionary praxis. Presentations can focus on: specific initiatives, people or groups, a school or institution, historical, cultural, or theoretical studies, and etc. Paper presentations are highly encouraged. Presenters will be allotted 15 minutes for presentations.
Please submit a 250 word abstract of your proposed presentation Khalid Long at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 16, 2011. Please include name, contact information and short bio. For more information, contact Khalid Long @ email@example.com.
