OESA Conference 2014 - Call for Papers

The conference is held by the Social Foundations of Education program in the School of Educational Studies.

Submit by email abstracts of 250 words as an attachment to oesa@okstate.edu by Feb 23, 2014.

Conference Theme: Reimagining Community: Education in a Democratic Society. In an increasingly diverse and yet connected world, education is facing the challenge of preparing students to participate in democratic communities that respect and embrace radical differences. But how is democracy possible in such a diverse world? What role does education play in building such community and democracy? What responsibilities should students be prepared to claim? Since democratic and responsible citizens are cultivated in schools, this conference aims to question the current local, national, and global practices and policies in formal and informal education that fail to respond to the challenges of imagining and building community. It urges different ways of thinking that will create responsible citizens with principles of equality, justice and fairness, essential characteristics of democratic societies. We invite proposals to engage with the above questions and other issues concerning current education.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

* The notion of community reconsidered

* Democracy and education

* Multiculturalism in the classroom

* TESOL / Linguistic issues

* Differences in Race, Gender, Sexuality, Dis/ability, Religion… and more

Guidelines for submission:

Please email 250 word abstracts as an attachment (Microsoft Word) to oesa@okstate.edu by February 23, 2014. Please include all presenter names and institutions. Accepted proposals will be contacted through email by March 7, 2014.
