Description

A celebration of Geoff Whitty’s 50-year association with the IOE

Join us to mark Professor Geoff Whitty’s long-standing association with the IOE – from trainee teacher to Director Emeritus. We’ll be reflecting on Geoff’s time at the IOE and his contributions to the field of sociology of education as well as looking more broadly at the limits and possibilities for realising social justice in and through education.

Speakers:

  • Keynote lecture: Michael Apple, John Bascom Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Policy Studies, University of Wisconsin, Madison

  • Louise Archer, Karl Mannheim Chair of Sociology of Education, IOE

  • Stephen Ball, Distinguished Service Professor, IOE

  • Andrew Brown, Professor of Education and Society, IOE, and editor of a forthcoming festschrift for Geoff

  • Becky Francis, Director, IOE

  • Sharon Gewirtz, Professor of Education, King’s College London

  • Michael Young, Professor of Education, IOE, and a former tutor of Geoff’s

  • Bryn Morris, Registrar and Secretary, University of Essex, and former Director of Administration at the IOE
