DEPARTMENT OF OMNISHAMBLES

FACULTY OF THE INHUMANITIES / DEPTARTMENT OF OMNISHAMBLES /

Many think the Department of Omnishambles is a recent phenomenon in Higher Education, arising from radical cuts to university budgets, rampant managerialism, and the effective redesignation of teaching academics as full-time administrators.

This is in fact not the case.

ABOUT OMNISHAMBLES

Please feel free to post your own contributions to the Department of Omnishambles at the Faculty of the Inhumanities, or you can try to reach the administrator directly at JohannesDeSilentio@mail.com; although he or she may not, in fact, exist. 

Department of Omnishambles is at: http://departmentofomnishambles.tumblr.com/

This is brilliant! A must-read for academics and others interested in knowledge stuff! – Glenn Rikowski

PEACE EDUCATION: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

Call for Papers for a special issue of the Journal of Peace Education

“Peace Education:  Past, Present, & Future”

Editor:  B. Jeannie Lum

Objectives of the Special Issue:

Peace Education is currently a burgeoning field of scholarship and research that continually experiences challenges to its legitimation and participation in more traditional and conventional approaches to education.   Today, it receives increasing recognition by educators and the public in response to growing societal interests in globalization and local forms of school violence.

“Peace” is a guiding concept and principle that motivates current educational movements to redirect cultures of war into cultures of peace and transform their school cultures into constructive learning communities.  Peace education has worked in repairing the physical, psychological, and social fabric of human lives and societies impacted by natural disasters, war, violence, and human struggle throughout highly developed and underdeveloped countries. It addresses all life stages of human development and growth that lead to sustainable peace education practices within formal institutional and informal settings.  This special edition will examine the field of peace education, its past, present, and projected future.

This call for papers invites submissions that take an overview of the field of peace education, its emergence and gradual formation from the past, the current state of the field and possible visions for the future. It encourages submissions that utilize multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary methodological approaches to study and research.  It accepts works that examines the conceptual foundations of peace education and accounts for the relationship of theory to practice/praxis within a variety of traditional, modern, and post-modern philosophical frameworks.  It seeks papers that review historical trends and/or analyze specified areas of peace education, e.g. environmental ecology, varieties of conflict resolution and mediation, non-traditional school practices, philosophical concepts, historical and current figures, educational movements, multicultural communities, local to global transitions, national/internatio nal and comparative education, educational programs in various regions around the world, impact and effectiveness of NGO activities and global institutions, indigenous education,  etc.  Importantly, it looks for overviews and discussions in peace education about context based schooling practices – curriculum, discipline, classroom management, assessment & evaluation, educational policy and accounts regarding any members involved in schooling.   Importantly, it seeks works that venture to understand how peace education might be distinguished as a field of scholarship and research from other educational traditions.

Notes for Prospective Authors:

Expressions of interest including a 1,000 word should be sent to the Editor by: November 15th, 2010

Please contact Jeannie Lum (jlum@hawaii. edu), if you have inquiries regarding your topic prior to submitting your proposal.  

If selected, submissions should be between 5,000 – 9,000 words and follow the journal’s style requirements. Details can be found at http://www.tandf. co.uk/journals/ journal.asp? issn=1740- 0201&linktype=44

SOCIAL LEARNING SPACES: KNOWLEDGE SPACES

The 5th Space Symposium will be taking place at Warwick University on 29th March 2010. 

Registration is open and details of the event are below.

The Fifth Symposium on Social Learning Space: Knowledge Spaces

The Reinvention Centre for Undergraduate Research, Westwood Campus, University of Warwick, Monday 29 March, 2010  

‘Knowledge spaces are the thick social spaces through which truth, knowledge and power are created’ (Sarah Wright, 2005: 908)

Following the success of the previous four Space Symposia, Knowledge Spaces addresses the role of architecture, spatial planning and the use of different spaces in the construction and experience of curricula and pedagogy in Higher Education.

The symposium will address the question of how the spaces we create, occupy and challenge, both within the university and beyond it, affect what and how we know, as well as considering who plays what roles in the process of knowledge creation and communication. In particular, the symposium will explore:

* The landscapes of learning in Higher Education

* The use of ‘real life’ spaces such as urban, public, employment and community settings for the development and enactment of curricula and assessment

* The relationship between physical classroom spaces and different pedagogical approaches 

* The role of university buildings and curricula in shaping pedagogical and political relations between students and staff

The event offers an exciting and diverse programme of keynote lecture(s), participatory workshop(s) and an interactive research exhibition.

Confirmed speakers and workshop leaders:

Professor Mike Neary, University of Lincoln: (Learning Landscapes and the struggle for the idea of the University)

Professor Jonothan Neelands: Institute of Education, University of Warwick (tba)

Oscar van den Wijngaard and Wilfred van Dellen, University College Maastricht: (Colleagues and Peers at University College Maastricht: Collaboration and reciprocity as educational strategy)

Dr Sarah Czerny and Students, University of Rijeka, Croatia:  (Blocked Spaces: (Re)considering the staff-student relation form the perspective of the blokada in Rijeka)

Registration

The cost of the conference is £75 for waged delegates and £10 for students.

Online registration is now available via this web page: www.warwick.ac.uk/go/reinvention/spaces/symposia/fifth/
