14th Annual International Globalization, Diversity, and Education Conference
 
The conference theme, Power and Cultural Politics in Antiracist and Decolonial Education and Educational Research: Intersectionality, Resistance, and Survival, invites proposals for paper presentations, workshops, and posters that share research that interrogates the cultural politics of education and engages scholarship that critically examines the relationships between knowledge, power, and experience in education for greater equity and justice. What is the role of education and of educational research in a public culture of dissent? How can oppositional pedagogies, or “pedagogies of dissent” (Mohanty, 2003) operate in the context of cultural politics? What does it look like in K-12 education and higher education? Presentations that interrogate the cultural politics of education and engage in questions of knowledge, power, and experience in education for greater equity and justice are especially welcomed.
