Branch Seminar

Ethics, Politics and Love in Education

September 24-26, 2010
University of Edinburgh, Moray House School of Education

Invited Speaker:

Alison Assiter
Professor of Feminist Theory

‘Action and Love in Kierkegaard and Arendt: Questions for Education’

In an attempt to profile the work of women in philosophy of education, the organisers of this first weekend seminar on the theme ethics, politics and love in education invite participation from a variety of perspectives and request submissions to present works in progress. Submissions not directly related to the theme are also welcome. Our hope is to create a fertile environment for discussion, networking, and mentoring across a range of interests. We strongly encourage both new and more experienced scholars to get involved in generating an active and lively intellectual community.

We are inviting proposals of works in progress of 2000-3000 words. Deadline for submission is August 24, 2010. The seminar will run from 3 p.m. Friday to 12 p.m. Sunday and there will be 3 time slots for presenters to discuss their work, Friday evening, Saturday morning and afternoon, with a scheduled meeting planned for Sunday morning. We will group the proposals thematically for each of the three time slots, and post them on-line prior to the seminar so that everyone can read them beforehand.

The conference registration fee is £20 and confirmation of participation is required by September 3rd. Funding is available for travel, bed and breakfast accommodation and meals. You do not need to present a paper to apply. Since our budget is limited, travel funding will be prioritised according to need. For more information please contact one of the organisers below.
