SRHE Higher Education Theory Group Seminar


Higher Education as a Public Good: Critical perspectives

Monday 4 July –Tuesday 5 July 2011

New College, Oxford


The Society for Research into Higher Education Theory Group invites you to participate in a  2 day symposium examining issues underlying the concept of higher education as a public good. This is a topic much discussed in the light of recent policy developments in the UK and in many other countries. The seminar will explore its theoretical underpinnings from several disciplinary perspectives. There will be inputs from keynote speakers and participative discussions on the issues raised. The main speakers will each produce a short synopsis of their contribution for participants to consider in advance of the seminar. It is intended to prepare a book for publication based on the seminar proceedings.


Keynote Speakers:

Nick Barr; Professor of Public Economics. LSE London

Bob Cowen; Emeritus Professor of Education. IOE London

David Dill; Emeritus Professor of Public Policy. University of North Carolina

Jon Nixon; Honorary Professor. University of Sheffield

Paul Standish; Professor of Philosophy of Education. IOE London



This symposium will take place at New College Oxford and the fee of £125 (£155 for non members of SRHE) covers the cost of accommodation for one night in ensuite rooms and all meals, including dinner in the College on Monday evening. Rooms at the College are limited so delegates are advised to make an early registration to attend this symposium.
