Tomorrow, Thursday 19 September, De Montfort University is hosting “Radical Pedagogies: Macpherson 20 Years On”. The main focus of the event will be on how radical pedagogies can be used to highlight and address issues relating to race and institutional discrimination.
I have previously blogged about the event, including the call for papers.
The full programme is also online now. We are intending to live stream several sessions as follows:
10.15-11.15: Silhouette Bushay’s keynote on hip-hop pedagogy
14.45-15.50: panel discussion on radical pedagogy and challenging racial discrimination
16.00-17.00: local educators’ panel discussion
The live stream will be available from our conference homepage (you will need to scroll down the page).
We are also planning to record each of the presentations in the breakout discussion/workshop sessions. There are abstracts for these available. The presentations will be available on the website too. We will be using #radicaldmu19 to curate the dialogue from the day.
There are thematic streams on:
- challenging institutional racism in education;
- radical Pedagogies in practice;
- against the attainment gap;
- decolonisation in practice;
- narrating raced and gendered experiences in education;
- disappearing narratives.
It promises to be a great event.
