4th IAFOR European Conference on Education (ECE) 2016 Brighton

  • Conference Call
  • This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will again bring together a range of aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers to dis­cuss new direc­tions of research and dis­cov­ery in edu­ca­tion. As with IAFOR’s other events, ECE2016 will afford the oppor­tu­nity for renew­ing old acquain­tances, mak­ing new con­tacts, and net­work­ing across higher edu­ca­tion and beyond.

    The Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on Edu­ca­tion 2016 (ECE2016) will be held along­side The Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on Tech­nol­ogy in the Class­room 2016 (ECTC2016), and The Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on Lan­guage Learn­ing 2016 (ECLL2016) on June 29-​July 3, 2016 in Brighton, United King­dom at the Water­front Hotel. Reg­is­tra­tion for any one of these con­fer­ences will allow atten­dees to attend ses­sions in the others.

    Con­fer­ence Theme and Streams

    Con­fer­ence Theme: “Edu­ca­tion and Social Jus­tice: Democ­ra­tiz­ing Edu­ca­tion“

    The con­fer­ence theme for ECE2016 is “Edu­ca­tion and Social Jus­tice: Democ­ra­tiz­ing Edu­ca­tion”, and the organ­is­ers encour­age sub­mis­sions that approach this theme from a vari­ety of per­spec­tives. How­ever, the sub­mis­sion of other top­ics for con­sid­er­a­tion is wel­come and we also encour­age ses­sions across a vari­ety of inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and the­o­ret­i­cal perspectives.

    In this con­fer­ence – one of a series of five held in 2016 on edu­ca­tion and social jus­tice – par­tic­i­pants are invited to explore and ques­tion ways in which edu­ca­tion can tran­scend bor­ders of space, iden­tity, cul­ture and more, and to con­sider the ways in which edu­ca­tion can develop (or hin­der) social justice.

    Abstracts should address one or more of the streams below, iden­ti­fy­ing a rel­e­vant sub-​theme:


    • Edu­cat­ing through bor­ders of power
