Event description

Description

The Centre for Islamic Thought and Education (CITE), University of South Australia is hosting the 4th Islamic Schooling Conference and Forum - AAISC42019 - A Focus on Social Justice

The purpose of the annual conference is to explore and share research on issues related to Islamic schooling in Western contexts, to showcase the work of educators in Islamic schools, to network with others who believe in the power and necessity of such work, and to learn from one another how best to enhance teaching and learning in diverse Islamic schooling contexts.

This year’s theme is on social Justice in Islamic Schooling. The theme builds on the excellent scholarship of previous conferences and highlights the significance and need to address social justice issues in Islamic schools. This year’s conference will provide researchers, educators, parents and other community members with the opportunity to discuss processes, policies, pedagogies and other practices that either enhance or diminish social justice in and through education in Islamic schools. The conference aims to be a safe place for critical discussions, sharing experiences and insights into what works and what does not, to inspire all to work toward practice characterised by justice, and to nurture hope.

Social justice is one of the most significant and focal areas of Islam, and we hope that the conference will be able to address issues of social justice based on Islamic and western scholarship.
