Revolution, Remembrance and Re-vision: Charting the Path of Education
The History of Education Society (HES) Annual Conference in 2018 will be hosted by Mary Immaculate College in Limerick, Ireland, on 9 and 10 November 2018. This is the first time that this esteemed international conference will be held in Limerick. Given our excellent keynote speakers – namely, Dr Raymond McCluskey (School of Education, University of Glasgow), Dr Jane McDermid (Emeritus Fellow in History, University of Southampton), Dr Jane O’Dea (Professor and Dean of Education Emerita, University of Lethbridge, Canada) and Prof Tom O’Donoghue (Graduate School of Education, University of Western Australia) – we are sure that this year’s conference will provide a valuable opportunity for discussion and debate.
The theme of the conference, Revolution, Remembrance and Re-vision: Charting the Path of Education, is relevant to our times, challenged as we are by change, diversity and issues of policy and equity. You are invited to submit a proposal to this conference on one of the following themes:
- Education and periods of social, political, civil and cultural unrest
- Educators and activism
- Educators: biography and life-history
- Methodology, theory and historiography
- Institutional histories
- Education: archives and objects
Proposals on related themes will also be considered.
The closing date for submissions is 30 June 2018. Please email abstracts of 250 words to Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick: HES@mic.ul.ie. Presenters will be notified of acceptance by the end of September.
Students wishing to present 10-minute work-in-progress papers on current research during the Annual Conference should email a short outline to Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick: HES@mic.ul.ie by June 30, 2018.
Mary Immaculate College is 15-20 minutes’ walk from the city centre so many hotels there are a good option as well as some suburban hotels which are not far away, but MIC has a number of preferred rates with local hotels for conference delegates: see here for more information.
