This symposium aims to explore the relevance of theories of neoliberalism to contemporary education research and to intervening upon and shaping education to create positive change. A key focus of the symposium will be to address whether neoliberalism as a conceptual framework or normative description ('everyone is neoliberal now') is useful to framing understandings of the complex changes underway in education across the globe. The symposium will provide a unique opportunity for participants to engage with a broad range of issues affecting education, from accountability infrastructures and public-private partnerships to repressive pedagogies and new public management.
Keynote speakers will include Professor Richard Hall, Professor of Education and Technology and Co-Director of the Institute for Education Futures, De Montfort University, and Dr Steve Courtney, Lecturer in Management, University of Manchester. Each speaker will discuss how they use neoliberalism in their research, the benefits of such use to developing and deepening new knowledge about education, and the possibilities for intervention and change (if any) made possible by these approaches to education research.
Organisers: Dr Andrew Wilkins (University of East London) and Dr Mark Murphy (University of Glasgow)
Event date and time: 27 June 2018, 10:00-16:00, University of East London, UK
