GEA is delighted to launch the programme for the upcoming Gender and Education Association International Conference on Gender Complexity, Collaboration, Connectedness.

Hosted by the Werklund School of Education at the University of Calgary, Canada, this year’s conference will reflect on the pillar of gender as a central identifier in education. The primary goal of the conference is to provoke conversations attentive to the complexity of gender in the current socio-political context. It will address collaboration both in the purest sense in which gender is a collaborative process through which we are authored and co-authored as well as in the broader sense that feminists and critical educators engage in collaborative research and activism to disrupt normative ideologies. Finally, it will speak to the connectedness possible when theory meets practice.

To address this year’s theme the conference is hosting a diverse range of panels and workshops alongside a stellar line-up of spotlight speakers including:

We look forward to welcoming national, international and local educators, teachers, administrators, policy makers, community leaders, agencies and activists with a particular focus on gender, social justice, equality and education.
