Second Annual Graduate Students Conference
November 15 and 16, 2013
Transformative Researchers and Educators for Democracy (TRED)
announces the Second Annual Conference
VOICES and SILENCES of SOCIAL and COGNITIVE JUSTICE
Hosted by the Doctoral Students in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies
Transformative Researchers and Educators for Democracy (TRED) Conference 2013
This second conference, sponsored by the doctoral students in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies program at UMass-Dartmouth, manifests our core belief that the struggle for social justice is a struggle for cogntive justice.
We are extending a special invitation to graduate students, educators, researchers, leaders, professionals, and the community to participate in the conference.
We seek to provide a public space for educational researchers and practitioners to engage in critical and transformative dialogues through forums, presentation sessions, panel discussions, and informal gatherings, which place the discussion of educational leadership and policy within the dynamics of ideological production, that reflect existing power imbalances that perpetuate inequalities within society.
The conference will have two keynote Speakers, in conjunction with numerous forums for critical discussion that will provide an opportunity for educational researchers and practitioners to engage in dialogue relevant to regional, national, and international interests.
The conference will offer several primary lenses through which Critical Transformative Leadership and Policy can be explored in contemporary educational discourse and practice:
- Prejudice and Neutrality in Curriculum, Assessment, and Leadership: Race, Class, Gender, and Ethnicity
- Critical Criminal Justice and Education Policy
- Cultural Politics of Exclusion: Globalization, Imperialism, and Colonialism
- Individuality, Spirituality, and Cognitive Justice
- Critical Pedagogy and Transformative Public Policy: Identities, Languages, and Sexualities
- Special Education and Dis/Ability Studies
- Ethics and Education
- Literature, Aesthetics, and Education
As such, the conference will be invaluable for academics, state and district administrators, school building leaders, K-12 teachers and educational policy makers at all levels.
Proposals can be submitted electronically from June 1 through September 17, 2013 here
