Organising Committee: Professor Penny Jane Burke; Professor Lisa Adkins; Professor Rosalind Gill; and Associate Professor Ros Smith; Dr Julia Coffey and Dr Akane Kanai, along with the broader CEEHE administrative team.
Theme: “Gender, Post-truth Populism and Pedagogies:
Challenges and Strategies in a Shifting Political Landscape”

Keynote Speakers:Professor Raewyn Connell; Professor Sondra Hales; Professor Susan Page; and Professor Jane Kenway.

The conference theme is intended to provide a platform to critically engage with and interrogate the current political landscape in which debates about knowledge, authority, truth, power and harm are resurfacing and require feminist intervention. A central question underpinning this conference theme is: what does it mean to be pedagogical in a post-truth landscape? And how might feminist scholars work to intervene in this environment? The GEA 2018 conference will provide a forum to explore the challenges and strategies for educators, researchers and participants in higher education in these complex times.
