We are pleased to confirm that REGISTRATION for our Critical
Pedagogies: Equality and Diversity in a Changing Institution symposium(6 of September 2013, University of Edinburgh) is now OPEN.
This interdisciplinary symposium, aimed at opening discussions regarding teaching in our changing institutions and investigating how our roles as both teachers and learners are continuously challenged and negotiated, features keynote lectures by:
Professor Heidi Safia Mirza: "Decolonizing Pedagogies: Black feminist reflections on teaching race, faith and culture in higher education”
Professor Joyce Canaan: “Building alternatives to the neoliberal university: what critical pedagogy and social movement theories and practices offer".
The symposium also includes a range of speakers with dialogic and diverse presentations, workshops and contributions on decolonising the university, teaching and activism, resisting marketisation, accessibility, breaking silences surrounding racism and exclusions, creating networks of allies and numerous others.
The symposium day will end with a Roundtable discussion with invited speakers entitled "Education, Intersectionality and Social Change".
We are also thrilled to host a free warm-up workshop on the day before(5th of September): "In, Against and Beyond the Neoliberal University",
Please find attached our provisional programme for your perusal.
