Women in Philosophy of Education
Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain
Relationships, Practices, Imaginaries
September 30-October 2, 2011
University of Edinburgh, Moray House School of Education
In an attempt to profile the work of women, and career-young researchers of both sexes, in philosophy of education, the organisers of this weekend seminar on the theme relationships, practices, imaginaries invite participation from a variety of perspectives and request submissions to present works in progress. Submissions not directly related to the theme are also welcome. Our hope is to create a fertile environment for discussion, networking, and mentoring across a range of interests. We strongly encourage both new and more experienced scholars to get involved in generating an active and lively intellectual community.
We are inviting proposals of works in progress of 2000-3000 words. Deadline for submission is August 15, 2011. The seminar will run from 3 p.m. Friday to 12 p.m. Sunday and there will be 3 time slots for presenters to discuss their work, Friday evening, Saturday morning and afternoon, with a scheduled meeting planned for Sunday morning. We will group the proposals thematically for each of the three time slots, and post them on-line prior to the seminar so that everyone can read them beforehand.
The conference registration fee is £20 and confirmation of participation is required by September 1st. Funding is available for travel, bed and breakfast accommodation and meals. You do not need to present a paper to apply. Since our budget is limited, travel funding will be prioritised according to need.
