Conference Abstract


We live in a political, social, technological and educational landscape whose contours are constantly changing. Even the nature and role of scientific and research knowledge are being challenged. What counts as trustworthy is up for (re)negotiation.


As early career educational researchers, we often occupy a liminal space within this landscape, identifying with both the professional and academic communities in which we work. This is a unique vantage point to imagine possibilities beyond established, taken-for-granted assumptions about educational purpose, research and knowledge. What are the challenges and possibilities? What is imaginable? Where are the tensions and sticking points?


This student-led conference will provide a space to explore some of these questions, reflect on our work and refresh our aspirations to contribute to transforming education. It will provide a forum for invigorating and thought-provoking dialogue, about and within educational research and between research and practice.


We are delighted to invite you to join us for discussion, presentations, networking events and workshops in a supportive and friendly environment. We welcome contributions from people from any area of education and at any stage of their doctoral journey, from those who are contemplating starting a doctorate to those who have recently completed.
