The ninth international Gender and Education Association conference, Compelling Diversities, Educational Intersections, will take place in London this week. Hosted by the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research, papers, keynotes and symposia are set to consider ‘diversity’ in education, exploring the relationship between new equality regimes and continued educational inequalities, and the role of feminist research at a time when education wrestles with the commitments and contentions in doing diversity and being diverse.
Ahead of the conference, Routledge have announced details of a new book series on the topic of diversity which may be of interest to GEA members. The new book series – Advances in Critical Diversities – is co-edited by Professor Yvette Taylor, Head of the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research, LSBU and Dr Sally Hines, CIGS, University of Leeds.
Already it has an impressive line-up with Sexuality, citizenship and belonging: transnational, national and intersectional perspectives (by Francesca Stella et al., University of Glasgow), an edited collection from the One Year After the Riots conference (Sept. 2011) and a co-authored monograph, Purchasing Diversity, Exchanging Difference, to be published in 2014.
