Description

Educational Futures and Fractures (download programme here)

University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK

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? Conference papers will explore the following themes:

Border pedagogy

  • Altered borders: creations, transcendences, inventions, repositionings and fortifications
  • Defining and contesting social, cultural and political boundaries for social-educational change
  • Symbolic and territorial borders across educational spaces
  • Multi-raciality and mixedness

Educational Activisms

  • (Im)mobilities inside-outside academia
  • Embodied inter-subjectivity in research-activist encounters
  • Embodiment and pedagogies
  • Community education and activism

Mobilities

  • Migrant movements, migrating capital
  • Accreditation, diploma recognition and capacity building
  • Institutional prestige, mobilities, constraints

Queer Liminalities

  • Queer educational agency, ‘failures’ and ‘no’ future?
  • Sexuality and (trans)gender borders within and beyond the classroom
  • Safety, visibility, and diversity, decolonization, and co-optation/incorporation on campus

Keynote Speaker: Dr Rowena Arshad OBE, University of Edinburgh
