The 4th International Conference on Critical Pedagogies and Philosophies of Education

Thursday 27 - Friday 28 July
West Downs, University of Winchester, Romsey Road, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 5HT

​“Education may well be, as of right, the instrument whereby every individual, in a society like our own, can gain access to any kind of discourse. But we well know that in its distribution, in what it permits and in what it prevents, it follows the well-trodden battle-lines of social conflict. Every educational system is a political means of maintaining or of modifying the appropriation of discourse, with the knowledge and the powers it carries with it.”

Michel Foucault (1971) The Archaeology of Knowledge and Discourse on Language, New York: Pantheon, p. 227.

Building on the successes of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd International Conferences on Critical Pedagogies and Philosophies of Education, this conference will bring together international scholars in philosophy of education to consider the significance of critical pedagogy and philosophy of education to international contemporary debates across educational theory and practice.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Professor Ruth Irwin, University of Aberdeen
  • Professor Marc Depaepe, University of Leuven
  • Professor Aislinn O’Donnell, University of Maynooth
