Philosophy of Education Society Annual Meeting — Making Philosophy of Education: A Graduate Student Pre-Conference Workshop
Thursday, March 12, 2015 – 2-7 pm – Memphis Westin Beale Street
Working retrospectively and prospectively we are seeking to make originary philosophy of education at PES 2015. Toward that end, graduate students in the field are invited to engage in a pre-conference workshop and take up the question energizing our gathering in Memphis: How do we make philosophy of education? The pre-conference workshop aims to examine the articulation, production and dissemination of philosophy of education. The five hour event will include a group dinner at the Keough Café. The workshop will have two parts. The first half will produce a set of theses in response to the question: How do we make philosophy of education? Participants will be asked to think about the past and present work in the field, and to envision and articulate new possibilities. The second part of the event will be a hands-on workshop geared toward practical advice for navigating the job market. It will include faculty who have recently completed successful searches and those who have been on hiring committees. Feedback on CV construction, letter writing, and other concrete aspects of the search process. Participants are encouraged to bring their materials for sharing and review. The second part will be lead by JOPE chair, Nakia Pope, along with Cara Furman (U Maine, Farmington), Tyson Lewis (UNT), and Sam Rocha (UBC). Please join for this unique experience to make the future of PES!
The workshop is a first-come, first-serve open-enrollment event. Deadline to enroll is February 6, 2015. Any and all inquiries should be sent electronically to Eduardo Duarte, PES 2015 Program Chair
