Event description

Description

The Centre for Education, Training, and Work in the Asian Century presents:

The Politics of Gender, Sexuality and Pedagogy in a ‘Post-Truth World’

A farewell Invitational Conference and Pedagogy in the Pub Event

Tuesday 12th December: 10:00am - 4:30pm, Pedagogy in the Pub: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Wednesday 13th December: 10:00am - 4:30pm

This conference - and Pedagogy in the Pub event on Tuesday evening - offers scholars, activists, and pedagogues the opportunity to engage with the challenges of the ‘post-truth’ world for people of diverse genders, sexes, and sexualities. A post-truth world is one in which “objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief” (Washington Post). Presentations are by invitation but we welcome you to join us for the event as a non-presenting participant. Places are limited to 50 so register now!

sj’s research is framed around transdisciplinary perspectives on social justice, which cut across theory, epistemology and pedagogy and links across socio-spatial justice, Urban Education, preservice and in-service secondary language arts teacher dispositions, and marginalized/undervalued student literacies and identities.
