NERA 2019

Welcome to the NERA 2019 Conference in Uppsala, Sweden 6-8 March. Theme: Education in a globalized world. Network 16 hope to bring forward topical papers and explore the theme during the conference and encourage members to submit abstracts and work in progress.

Conference Theme: Education in a globalized world.

We live in a time of rapid change, where globalization processes are affecting all education researchers and practitioners. The conference is framed by two driving questions connecting education and globalization: What implications does globalization have for education? And, what is the role of education in a globalized world?

Pre-Conference Research Seminar and PhD course 7 – 8th March 2018

Philosophy and Educational Research: Boundaries, Breaches and Bridges

This pre-conference research seminar (PhD course) explores recent changes in the field of education and what implications these changes can (and should) mean for our understanding of the nature of educational science. The changes include a massive growth of the field, mainly related to teacher education research; the dissolving of the traditional disciplinary boundaries; the evidence-based movement which professes a largely a-theoretical approach, and the concomitant changes in the status of educational research. Using meta-theoretical perspectives to discuss and portray the field we shall address three main issues

• The twin problems of fragmentation of the field and the need to keep it together, coherent and identifiable as education
• The notions of disciplinarity, multidisciplinarity and interdisciplinarity and their implications for educational research
• Different conceptualizations of the nature of educational science, its legitimate aims and scope.

Speakers:
– Prof. David Bridges, University of East Anglia
– Prof. Moira von Wright, Ersta Skönberg Högskola
– Assoc. Prof. Harald Jarning, University of Oslo
– Prof. Tone Kvernbekk, University of Oslo
– Prof. Daniel Sundberg, Linnaeus University

Bildung in contemporary societies

The Nordic Society for Philosophy of Education will, in cooperation with NERA, host a pre-conference research seminar on “Bildung in contemporary societies” in Copenhagen Wednesday 22nd to Thursday 23rd March 2017. The aim with this seminar is to explore the promises and pitfalls of present-day notions of ethic-political education (Bildung).

Please email torill.strand@iped.uio.no if you plan to attend.

Pre-Conference workshop

The Nordic Society for Philosophy of Education hosts, in cooperation with NERA, a pre-conference workshop on Solidarity as a lived experience in Helsinki Tuesday 8th to Wednesday 9th March 2016 (from lunch to lunch). Members of the society are welcome at no extra costs. Please email torill.strand@iped.uio.no if you plan to attend.

Time: Tuesday 8th March 13.15 – Wednesday 9th March 12.00

Venue: Room K108 at Institute of Behavioral Sciences, Siltavuorenpenger 5, University of Helsinki

Philosophers of education have long since discussed the complex notions and practices of solidarity. However, as a new world order challenge earlier notions and practices, solidarity is an emerging subject to ongoing studies in various subfields of ethics and political philosophy. Conceptions of solidarity are now being analyzed and discussed among contemporary philosophers, such as Badiou, Butler, Honneth, Malabou, Taylor, Rancière and Zizek. But to what degree and in what ways do todays philosophers of education explore the many faces of solidary thoughts and actions? And to what degree do we acknowledge solidarity as a lived experience?

The aim of this workshop is to invite an in-depth philosophical exploration and discussion of solidarity as a lived experience in contemporary societies.

In order to initiate such in-depth explorations, we have invited these speakers:

  • Katariina, Holma, University of Helsinki, Finland
  • Odin Lysaker, University of Agder, Norway
  • Lars Løvlie, University of Oslo, Norway
  • Claudia Schumann, University of Stockholm, Sweden

Odin Lysaker’s paper on “Dignity and Solidarity – Globalizing Axel Honneth’s Recognition Theory” serves as a starting point for an in-depth exploration, but also a broad debate on the topic.

Solidarity as a lived experience

The NERA network 16, Philosophy of Education, hosts a pre-conference workshop in Helsinki, March 8 – 9, 2016 (from lunch to lunch) on Solidarity as a lived experience.

Philosophers of education have long since discussed the complex notions and practices of solidarity. However, as a new world order challenge earlier notions and practices, solidarity is an emerging subject to ongoing studies in various subfields of ethics and political philosophy. Conceptions of solidarity are now being analyzed and discussed among contemporary philosophers, such as Badiou, Butler, Honneth, Malabou, Taylor, Rancière and Zizek. But to what degree and in what ways do todays philosophers of education explore the many faces of solidary thoughts and actions? And how do present-day philosophers of education acknowledge solidarity as a lived experience?

To initiate a broad debate, we will hear a lecture form a well-known philosopher on this topic. We have also invited papers from distinguished members of the society – one from each Nordic country – to comment on this topical lecture. Further details on the program and other practicalities will be distributed through email to all members of the society.
