pesaThe Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia
49TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

PHILOSOPHICAL DIALOGUES IN EDUCATION, EAST MEETS WEST

7-11 Dec 2019, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

https://pesa.org.au/conference

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. (Confucius)

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. (Aristotle)

For this conference, we welcome you to the University of Hong Kong, where the historic legacies and contemporary trends of eastern and western (and northern and southern) cultures and societies vividly converge, diverge, and intersect in daily life. This conference will focus on mixings, minglings, and clashes as seen in educational philosophy and theory, in Hong Kong, the Asia Pacific, and around the world.

The conference organising committee welcomes research exploring diversity in inquiry, argument, and theory, within and across traditions, emphasising the following themes:

  • Truth and Harmony
  • Individual Rights and Social Responsibility
  • Analytical and Holistic Thinking
  • Wisdom and Knowledge
  • Contemplation and Action
  • Reason and Reality
  • Transformation and Ideology
  • Self and Others
  • Freedom and Community

The conference will also address the significance for philosophy of education of embracing comparative, transcultural, and intercultural approaches. Explorations emphasising global, international, and cosmopolitan possibilities are also welcome. A special issue of Educational Philosophy & Theory and a monograph will be developed from select texts and presentations from the conference proceedings.

Political Matters: Spatial Thinking of the Alternative - Auckland - 18-19 July

Puniversity-of-aucklandOLITICAL MATTERS: SPATIAL THINKING OF THE ALTERNATIVE
2019 Interstices Under Construction Symposium

18 – 19th July 2019, Auckland, New Zealand

University of Auckland & Auckland University of Technology

https://www.interstices.ac.nz/call-for-papers-7/

By considering architecture beyond academic and aesthetic analysis, and more than a mere branch of traditional art history or a civilisation’s will to form, this symposium addresses the relation between architecture and the political. We invite papers that reflect on and analyse the disciplinary and oppressive regimes accommodated by architectures at different levels—individual, social, cultural, environmental, economic or legal. More so, in this symposium we seek to formulate the hopeful, active and productive role architecture may have in the formation of social movements and in transformations of everyday contemporary life. This symposium, then, invites papers that address the possibilities for alternatives—specifically architecture with new rationales and organisation beyond scenographic or ready-made solutions proffered in the excluding interests of market economies. Preference will be given to papers that engage with theory as a way to expand the traditional narrations of the built environment.
