The ISCHE Executive Committee invites proposals for pre-conference workshops to be held (Monday 17 July).  Since 2013, members of ISCHE have organized half-day pre-conference workshops to initiate collective discussions about a specific topic. These workshops are limited in terms of participants but open to the attendees of the main ISCHE conference.  Pre-conference workshops may include some invited speakers and presenters but must also include a public call for submissions.  Both the convenors and all participants in pre-conference workshops are required to register for the main ISCHE conference. Participation in a pre-conference workshop will require advance registration via the general conference registration system and the overall number of participants may be limited.

The International Congress on “Society, education and elites. Historical Perspectives from the Enlightenment to the Digital Era” will take place at the University of Deusto (Bilbao, Spain) in May 17-19, 2017.

It focuses on the relationship between society, education and elites from the viewpoint that society (public discourse, parties, States, government systems, etc.) as well as education (universities, primary and secondary schools, vocational training, higher education, etc.) make up their own systems. Special attention is paid to the way in which the different historical processes of secularisation, industrialisation, modernisation, digitalisation, etc. have created various ways in which education systems train elites who serve the social system.

Ο ιστότοπος του συνεδρίου

Education per se is power, or so educators truly believe. Education is able to influence politics, the businessenvironment, faith, teachers and parents, as well as the media. Throughout time, power in the field of education has been attempted to be realized, demonstrated, proven and imposed by a variety of actors: politicians, public figures, the clergy, business people, warlords, teachers, parents, and the mass media among others. The power structure has changed according to the political system, market economy, tradition, and even fashion.

Contemporary historiography shows a renewed interest in phenomena of transfer, circulation, diffusion, flux and exchange among different spheres. Notions such as internationalization, globalization and others are used to describe these phenomena. Placing these concepts in their historical and theoretical frameworks, the aim of this Conference is to examine the processes that they designate in the field of education. What is diffused, exchanged, transferred? Are these movements linear, circular or deferred? Transcending national borders, how do actors, networks and institutions mediate educational knowledge and practice? In what social and historical conditions do these mediations take place? What are the constraints and the forces –economic, political, cultural, geographic– that structure these exchanges? Who are the principal beneficiaries of the processes of internationalization? What dynamics of emancipation, exclusion, resistance are produced during global exchanges? 

The theme of the conference is “Education for Development in Hard Times” has a broad theme, to  include  the  role  of  key  stakeholders  in  educational  development  in  Africa  and  beyond to  include academia,  policymakers,  teacher  education,  teachers  unions,  education  departments,  NGOs  and other civil society structures..
