Education Crisis

DEVELOPING INTERNATIONAL NETWORKS AND COLLABORATIONS IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Organised by the Culture Capital Exchange

Date/Time: 9.30 – 12.30 Wednesday 14 December 2011
Venue: Central School of Speech & Drama (nearest tube Swiss Cottage)

HEIs are increasingly working beyond the UK to develop new partnerships, networks, knowledge and business. Such international collaborations are recognised as playing a vital role in contributing to challenges that often cross national boundaries. They are also viewed as an essential component of an increasingly globalised knowledge economy. These positions are reflected in policy and strategic plans and are also evident at institutional and individual levels.

In this event we bring together a range of speakers who are involved in developing projects in a fascinating diversity of contexts and locations. Each will speak about the work they have been developing and the opportunities and challenges they have encountered along the way. They will also share their thoughts on how international collaborations can best be fostered and supported and on how such opportunities can enhance research and help maximise its impact.

This event will be useful for academics and professionals from the HE sector who are either already active in developing international collaborations or are interested in doing so in the near future. It will be introduced by Professor Simon Shepherd (Central School of Speech & Drama).

Speakers include: Bronac Ferran (Independent curator and writer), Professor Chris Bannerman (RESCEN, University of Middlesex), Professor Robin Nelson (Central School of Speech & Drama), Wendy Malem (Dean of Enterprise and International Development, University of the Arts), Professor Evelyn Welch, (VP for Research and International Affairs, Queen Mary, UoL) and Dr Christina Makris (Cass Business School, City University London).

RESISTANCE IN LATIN AMERICA

SOCIALIST RESISTANCE MEETING

THURSDAY 24 NOVEMBER, 7.30PM
Community Centre, 62 Marchmont Street, WC1N 1AB
(Kings Cross & Russell Square tubes)

RESISTANCE IN LATIN AMERICA
Across the continent, mass resistance is continuing against the neo-liberal project. In Chile, students have been protesting for months to demand free public education. In Bolivia, protestors have been opposing a highway through an indigenous and ecological reserve in the Amazon. In Mexico, the electrical workers union announce the launch of a new independent working class party. And in Venezuela, the Chavez government is still charting an independent course in the USA’s own backyard. Jeff Webber and Iain Bruce, authors of books on Latin America, will be reporting on the struggles that are going on in the region and outline the prospects for the movement.

Speakers:
JEFF WEBBER, author of “From Rebellion to Reform in Bolivia” and “Left-Indigenous Struggles in Modern Bolivia”
IAIN BRUCE, author of “The Real Venezuela: Making Socialism in the 21st Century”.
