Symposium to inspire new approaches to gender issues in education

On Monday and Tuesday the Centre organizes a symposium on Challenges to Gender Issues in Education, where the idea is to discuss and problematize the increasing essentialism in educational actions. But above all, the symposium seeks to find new inspiration to approach gender issues in education.

The symposium is organized in collaboration with the department of Curriculum Studies at Uppsala University and will be held at Blåsenhus.

Invited speakers are Madeleine Arnot from the Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge, UK, Bronwyn Davies from the University of Melbourne, Kate Scantlebury from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware, and Gaby Weiner from the Gender and Education Association at Lancester University.
