The event features two keynote lectures from Heidi Safia Mirza (University of London) and Joyce Canaan (Birmingham City University) as well as what will likely prove to be an excellent roundtable involving six discussants (listed here) reflecting on "numerous issues surrounding antiracism, intersectionality, education and social change".
"In the context of changing institutions as well as public life, issues of equality, diversity and inclusiveness in the classroom become more and more imperative. Critical pedagogy is conceptualised as an inherently crossdisciplinary praxis, encouraging and fostering discussion and development around issues of equality and diversity."The call for papers for this symposium has closed but registration is still open. Those in the area the day before may also like to attend a "warm-up" workshop scheduled for the afternoon of 5 September. More information, including a provisional programme, can be found on their website.
