Deadline for Papers: Fall 2013 University Seminar
On the Future of Anthropology in Schools of Education
Teachers College, Columbia University
The intersection of Anthropology and Education remains a site of productive tensions we must continue to explore. The Programs in Applied Anthropology and Anthropology and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University are organizing a small conference bringing together faculty and graduate students to discuss the current challenges facing our field. We seek papers with a particular focus on the ethnographic discovery of the unexpected designs that defy imposed structures and classifications, and thereby challenge easy generalizations about populations, their education, and their fates in contemporary schools. Check the Position Papers by some of the organizers for further background.
Theoretical issues raised at the intersection of education, culture, and social structure
Methods of inquiry designed to highlight educative practices
Analysis and assessment of schooling policies and their implementation
The seminar will be held on Friday, October 25th, and Saturday, October 26th, 2013, at Teachers College, Columbia University and will consist of three or four plenary sessions and breakout sessions.
Though not a guarantee for all submissions, the aim of the seminar is to produce an edited volume of the best work from the different sessions.
