Call for papers for ECE 2013 - The European Conference on Education, Last Date for submission of abstraction: March 1 2013



ECE is an international, intercultural and interdisciplinary event, and will give delegates the chance to listen to the latest news and research from scholars around the world, and great networking opportunities across higher education. Academics working throughout the world are encouraged to forge working relationships with each other, and facilitate partnerships across borders as part of the wider IAFOR community.

Conference Theme: Learning and Teaching Through Transformative SpacesAs previous IAFOR Conferences on Education have shown, education and lifelong learning can be seen as a solution to a host of local and global problems whilst globalized education systems are becoming increasingly socially, ethnically and culturally diverse. Nevertheless, knowledge is often defined through discourses embedded in Western paradigms, as globalised education systems become increasingly determined by dominant knowledge economies.The Inaugural European Conference on Education extends these discussions to consider the pedagogic challenges of developing transformative spaces for learning and teaching. The conference organizers encourage submissions that consider learning and teaching through one of the following sub-themes, although submission of other topics for consideration is also welcome:- Challenges and transformations in learning and teaching- Virtual spaces: digital technologies and communications- Connections and disconnections in learning and teaching- Learning and teaching in glocal spaces of transformation- Space, Architecture and Learning- Global education and education for sustainable development- 'Englishes' and cultural communications- (Inter)cultural communications and understanding: challenging and preserving cultural differences- Leadership in learning and teaching- Bi-cultural, bilingual and bi-national educationWe hope to see you for our first conference in Europe in 2013!Professor Stuart D.

Call for Papers “Discrimination and Social Exclusion: Development Experience of Dalits in India”


The contemporary Indian scenario is characterised by increasing reflections and deliberations on the development question. These debates in general acknowledge that the development path that India has followed since  independence has not been successful in ensuring social equality or empowering
the weaker sections of India in general and dalits are in particular. The process
of globalisation has made the scenario even more complex and its impact on various sections of society in India is yet to be comprehended fully- both theoretically and empirically. The Dalit question assumes significance in this context because there is a more or less scholarly consensus that as a social group, the Dalits are one of the most discriminated and disadvantageous groups in contemporary India. Practices of discriminations and exclusion process exist in the social, economic, political spheres of society, irrespective of the existence of constitutional legal safeguards. A number of policies and programmes implemented by the state within the framework of affirmative action and positive discrimination have only been partially successful. In this context, the study proposes to look at the question of Dalit development in Karnataka through the frame-work of social exclusion. This frame work of social exclusion would help to comprehend the Dalit scenario in a more comprehensive manner by including the issues of social, economic and political empowerment, meaningful participation and the questions of equality and justice. Mere economic growth measured in terms of per capita and national incomes are proven utterly insufficient to understand the overall development of different social sections of Indian society. The overall well-being, political and social empowerment, removal of historically rooted discriminations, effective implementation of specific affirmative actions etc are widely understood as integral parts of a comprehensive notion of development. In such a context, the concept of social exclusion has emerged as a significant theoretical framework to understand the current Indian situation of uneven development and continuing state of inequality among different social groups. The significance of this frame work is that it emphasises a network of social relations that have bearing on the economic and political spheres of a community and explains the reasons of inequality and discrimination in a more comprehensive manner. As a part of ongoing study sponsored by ICSSR, a two-day national seminar is organised on the theme ‘Discrimination and Social Exclusion: Development Experience of Dalits in India” on 18th and 19th October, 2012. The seminar intends to deliberate on the following issues concerned with dalit empowerment with special focus on Karnataka state. ICSSR Sponsored National Seminar Call for Papers "Discrimination and Social Exclusion: Development Experience of Dalits in India" The Centre for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy in Mangalore University is organising a two-day National Seminar on 18th and 19th of October 2012. Sub themes of the seminar include 

  • Poverty, unemployment and access to resources among dalits,
  • Political participation and empowerment – panchayath 
      raj institution and dalits

  • Dalits, primary education and discrimination, 4) Practice of untouchability, discrimination and violence and atrocities against dalits,
  • Dalit movement and empowerment. 
The Research papers addressing any one of the above/related theme with strong theoretical and empirical analysis are welcome. The dead line for abstract submission is 30th September 2012 and for full papers 10th October 2012. The participants whose papers are accepted for presentation will be provided II/III tier AC train/fare by the shortest route, boarding and lodging facilities on the campus.  more info: http://www.mangaloreuniversity.ac.in/xampp/whatsnew/ICSSR%20Sponsored%20National%20Seminar.pdf

PSYCHOANALYSIS AND POLITICS is a conference series that aims to
address how crucial contemporary political issues may be fruitfully
explored through psychoanalytic theory, and vice versa: how political
issues may reflect back on psychoanalytic thinking. The series is
interdisciplinary; we invite theoretical contributions and historical,
literary or clinical case studies from philosophers, sociologists,
psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, group analysts, literary theorists,
historians and others. Perspectives from different psychoanalytic
schools are most welcome. We emphasise room for discussion among the
presenters and participants, thus the symposium series creates a space
where representatives of different perspectives come together and
engage with one another's contributions, participating in a community
of thought.

The conference fee, which includes lunch and dinner Friday and
Saturday, is 155 GBP. To sign up, please e-mail:
