V. International Conference on Critical Education

June 15 - 18, 2015, Wroclaw, Poland

Analyze, Educate, Organize. Critical Education for Social and Economic Justice

The International Conference on Critical Education (ICCE), previously held in Athens (2011, 2012), Ankara (2013) and Thessaloniki (2014), is a forum for scholars, educators and activists committed to social and economic justice.  The 5th ICCE: Analyze, educate, organize. Critical education for social and economic justice will take place in the Polish city of Wroclaw from June 15 - 18, 2015. 

At a time of economic crisis, when education is under siege by neoliberal capitalism, (neo)conservatism and aggressive nationalism, when teachers and academics are being proletarianized, youth criminalized, schools and universities turned into commodities, and when different forms of fundamentalism are growing, critical education, as a theory and as a movement, is gaining in relevance. International communities of critical educators build resistance to these processes and are engaged in fostering social change leading to a more just, equal and fair society.

The languages of the conference are English and Polish. Simultaneous translation will be provided during plenary sessions and selected parallel sessions.  For more information, please visit www.icce.uls.edu.pl. If you are presenting in another language, such as Turkish, for example, you will need to provide your own translator.
