Educational Futures and Fractures

Call for Abstracts: Educational Futures and Fractures

 Professor Yvette Taylor is hosting a new, free conference entitled
Educational Futures and Fractures

24th February 2017, Technology Innovation Centre (TIC)
This conference is driven by a central concern with educational futures, asking what, who and where is the future of Higher Education?  It will focus on transitions in undergraduate, postgraduate and academic staff flows and trajectories, asking what people and places are rendered (im)mobile, what fractures persist as educational fault-lines reconstituting inequalities across time and place, race and ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality? What alternative futures might be claimed amidst educational pressures, economic pressures, competitiveness and ‘failures’? What kinds of teaching practices, politics and activism, might resist the further stratification of educational futures?
