The Institute for Critical Education Studies (ICES) extends a warm welcome to all Rouge Forum @ AERA 2012 participants, international, national, and local! We look forward to a lively, engaged conversation or perhaps debate at Friday’s conference, with our intent of exploring what it means for scholars, and educators in general, to move beyond “knowing” to the pursuit of activist agendas for social change.
- What happens when teachers and other academics connect reason to power and power to resistance?
- How can academic work (in universities and other learning environments) support local and global resistance to global neoliberal capitalism?
- How do we respond to the obstacles and threats faced as activist scholars?
For more information and directions, go to Rouge Forum @ AERA. We are meeting Friday April 13, 2012 (9:00am – 6:00pm) at the University of British Columbia Robson Square Campus (downtown Vancouver). See you there! *Remember it is free and all are welcome!
