Challenging education: Feminist and anti-oppressive strategies in teaching and learning.

The first Nordic conference on feminist pedagogies, Uppsala, Sweden, 14th - 16th of June 2009.

The aim of this conference is to address, question and develop feminist and power perspectives of teaching and learning through creating a meeting place for educators across disciplinary and professional borders. Our vision is to open up a space where conversations between academics, educators and activists around issues of feminist and anti-oppressive pedagogy can take place - through international speakers, creative workshops and panel discussions.

The conference will take point of departure from, but is not restricted to, the following themes and aspects: 1. The gendered teaching and learning of science, 2. Gender, power and resistance in spaces of education, 3. Passion, ambition and learning, 4. Critical and feminist perspectives on the organizing and policy of education. We welcome scholars, educators and activists to propose topics for panels, single presentations and workshops and contribute to making the conference diverse and unique.

Welcome to Uppsala!
