Free Interactive Conference Open to All

To Know is Not Enough: Activist Scholarship, Social Change & The Corporate University

Friday April 13, 2012

Universityof British Columbia,

Robson Square Campus

HSBC Hall

Vancouver, BC

The theme for the 2012 annual meeting of the American Education Research Association is “Non Satis Scire: To Know Is Not Enough.” It is laudable that AERA is promoting “the use of research to improve education and serve the public good” rather than the mere accumulation of research knowledge, but The Rouge Forum is interested in exploring what it means for scholars, and educators in general, to move beyond “knowing” to the pursuit of activist agendas for social change:  

·      What happens when teachers and other academics connect reason to power and power to resistance?

·      How can academic work (in universities and other learning environments) support local and global resistance to global neoliberal capitalism?

·      How do we respond to the obstacles and threats faced as activist scholars?

The Rouge Forum @ AERA will bring together world-renowned scholars, teachers, community organizers, and other activists to discuss these questions and others related to activist scholarship, social change, academic freedom, and work in the corporate university as part of a one-day interactive conference at the Robson Square Campus of University of British Columbia in downtownVancouver.
