DISCOURSE, POWER & RESISTANCE IN EDUCATION NEWSLETTER – FEBRUARY 2014

DPR14 – Research and Practice: Exchange and Change

University of Greenwich, UK – 8-10 April, 2014
 
Is it time to remind ourselves what the conference is all about? Click here for the home page. That subtitle Exchange and Change could become a mantra: we exchange – that’s what conferences do, in coffee queues, lectures, presentations, workshops, and late into the small hours  – and change; we ourselves change; we change ourselves; we change one-another; we change the world…. The butterfly effect is good science.

There are just 67 days before the conference. This seems a long time; but the days will race by. Each year around this time the pace quickens as colleagues begin to realize it is time to send their abstracts, make their applications for funding to their institutions, apply for visas, book travel and accommodation, and prepare their presentations – papers, workshops, or posters. The second call for papers is 14 February – Valentine’s Day. As you sniff the bouquets that appear on your doorstep, adjust your bow tie and/or tiara and set out for romance, or, if you are in the UK, as you curl up before the fire to watch what the BBC rather discouragingly announces as highlights of today’s action from the Sochi Winter Olympics, which Team GB was hoping would bring medals, remind yourself that it is time to send your abstract. DPR does not do deadlines, seeing them as just as rigid, joyless and lifeless as they sound. Nevertheless, time is running out.

We have an outstanding and brilliant line up of keynote speakers this year: Richard Pring, then Stefan Collini, then Ivor Goodson. Details are posted on the web pages here, where you will see their pictures, brief biographies and the titles of their keynote presentations.

Just launched is a DPR blog, something we have been wanting for a while. The blog is in its infancy. We hope you will send your comments and your articles for inclusion, and that the blog will provide a forum for vigorous exchange and debate. Another innovation is the DPR Twitter site. Click, tweet, enjoy! We are grateful to John Blewitt for offering to look after the blog, and to James Duggan for taking care of Twitter.

I want to add an appeal which many of you will find familiar: please will you help us to spread the word about the conference? We rely on the goodwill of colleagues to send on information to their friends and colleagues, networks, institutions and mailing lists; perhaps also by using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Academia Edu – etc. One reason that DPR has continued to grow is that colleagues have been willing to give time to this. We will be most grateful if you can help to make the conference known, by forwarding this link to the conference home page, where there are further links to all aspects of the conference.
 
We very much hope to see you at the conference.
With all best wishes
Jerome

DPR CONFERENCE NEWSLETTER – OCTOBER 2013

DISCOURSE, POWER AND RESISTANCE IN EDUCATION

DPR14Research and Practice: Exchange and Change
University of Greenwich, UK – 8-10 April, 2014

Dear Colleagues

The conference is taking shape. The first call for papers is 3 December 2013; but abstracts are already coming in. Click here to see the abstracts already accepted, and here for the symposia proposed so far. DPR is democractic; and the conference reflects this, taking shape and developing its agenda as colleagues discuss ideas and as proposals come in. We strongly encourage you to get involved at this early stage by sending in proposals for papers, workshops, posters, exhibition work or performance relating to the issues around exchange and change. Help to shape the conference agenda.

Recently I asked colleagues what DPR meant to them. DPR conferences have been held each year since 2002, a book series has widely published conference themes and issues, for the last five years the journal Power and Education has extended the discussion, and an international network is growing as DPR colleagues work together and share ideas. What is this all about, and why does it matter? Here are some of the answers colleagues gave me:

  • DPR is a space for rebellious thinking and a master class in theory and philosophy around contemporary culture and education
  • DPR is a stimulating environment to be immersed in
  • DPR is a seed bank – a nuclear bunker – where ideas, values, practices, things that really matter can be kept safely alive until the sickness of neoliberalism has gone by
  • DPR is not elitist: it’s a good place to be for researchers and practitioners new and old
  • DPR is serious, but it’s extraordinarily friendly and invigorating.

 

Here is a quote from the flyer for DPR14: “DPR is political because teaching, learning and research are political: social justice requires that new understandings lead to action. DPR14 sets out to understand and to share the huge diversity of insights that only a truly international conference can bring together; to take courage, with a view to making things change.”

The DPR website has been updated. We hope it will be easy to use and a quick way to find out everything you need to know about the conference, the venue, travel, accommodation, registration and fees. Further information is being added regularly so please keep browsing the site.

Two news items:

1.       Pat Sikes has asked me to circulate information about the 2014 Qualitative Book of the Year Award: Call for Nominations. (Deadline: November 15, 2013). Click here to find out more.
2.       Dorit Kedar has sent information about the publication of her major project: The Book of Inter-religious Peace in Word and Image. Click here to read more.

Please will you help to spread the word about the conference by forwarding this Newsletter to colleagues, networks and institutions you think may be interested. Please contact me if there is any further information you would like, or to discuss a possible contribution to the conference.

With all best wishes
Jerome  (Jerome Satterthwaite – on behalf of the DPR Management Team)

STOP PRESS: Stefan Collini – author of What Are Universities For? (Penguin, 2012) has agreed to be a keynote speaker. For a foretaste of his brilliant wit and comprehensive understanding of contemporary Higher Education, read his Sold Out in the London Review of Books, 24 October 2013.

DISCOURSE POWER RESISTANCE CONFERENCE: DPR14, APRIL 8-10, 2014

Discourse Power Resistance

DPR is an annual international conference that has been held each Spring since 2002. The conferences began with a focus on the social, economic, political and cultural forces that shape education policy and practice world-wide. Over the years this broad focus has been maintained; but what has established the international reputation of DPR has been the on-going critical analysis of issues of social justice, and the commitment to enable silenced and marginalized voices to be heard: discourse, power, resistance.

DPR14 – Research and Practice: Exchange and Change

University of Greenwich, UK 8-10 April, 2014

At least in the humanities and social sciences, research needs to be reciprocal: asking questions, we are called in question, the researcher researched; and the outcome is mutual understanding one of another. The otherness of strangers, our essential strangeness one to another, brings us together to new insights which are never complete but always shared: to research is to be, in John Donne’s word, involved. Research should be mutual exchange.

All well and good! But if anything is to come of this deepened understanding – this coming together – it needs to be political. Research – exchange – is not enough. DPR is political because teaching, learning and research are political: social justice requires that new understandings lead to action. DPR14 sets out to understand and to share the huge diversity of insights that only a truly international conference can bring together; to take courage, with a view to making things change. This is the praxis Karl Marx had in mind: Philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it.

How can a conference change anything? Let us say it again: we come together, we share our ideas and questions and concerns; we take courage, because we need courage to challenge and change bad practice, tired conformity. We have left on the website the abstracts that were accepted for 2013 and from the two previous years, so as to demonstrate the conferences’ on-going commitment to sustained critical analysis leading to constructive change.

Presentations at the conference will take the form of papers, workshops, performances, exhibitions, and posters. The conference brings together a range of practitioners, researchers, policy-makers, learners and teachers, with ideas to share about research and practice, through single or joint presentations or as a contribution to any of the symposia that will be taking shape. Please keep an eye on the DPR web pages for further details.

See: http://www.dprconference.com/

If you have suggestions, or ideas for a contribution you would like to discuss, please contact the conference organizer,

DISCOURSE, POWER & RESISTANCE IN EDUCATION – CONFERENCE 2013

Discourse, Power, Resistance: DPR 13      

DISCOURSES OF INCLUSION AND EXCLUSION
9 – 11 April, 2013 – University of Greenwich, United Kingdom

Power can be a wonderful thing, as Terry Eagleton told the DPR conference in 2008: wonderful and essential for the achievement of our best and most generous purposes. But it can also be abused.

A widespread abuse of power is to organise the social world into groups that are included and others that are excluded, using the discourse of the powerful group, like subtly barbed wire, to distinguish the insiders from the outsiders on the grounds of gender, ethnicity, age, wealth, sexuality, class and other grouping. Communities may then disintegrate. The excluded members may seek to be admitted to the privileged group by learning and adopting its discourse; or they may resist this assimilation and celebrate their difference in defiant counter-cultures of their own.

What is the scope of research, learning and teaching in this contested space? What knowledges and methodologies should be included or excluded, and why? These are the issues the conference will consider.

Exchanging words and papers is a powerful academic practice at the heart of DPR. But the conference is about the discourses of inclusion and exclusion, so images, music, performance, display, story-telling – the variously imaginative ways of sharing our understanding – must have their space. DPR13 will include the contributions of the creative and performing arts so that the conference tells and shows a freshly inclusive vision.

Preparations and plans for DPR13 are already well under way with over 60 abstracts accepted and more coming in daily. The Second Call for Papers is Friday 21 December. This is not a deadline but we strongly encourage delegates planning to offer papers, workshops, posters or exhibition work to send abstracts as soon as possible. Details of 12 projects and seminars already in preparation are posted on the website.

Further proposals are being developed and will be posted soon. For further information or to discuss ideas, please contact Jerome Satterthwaite by email at jnsatterthwaite@gmail.com

Discourse

DISCOURSE, POWER AND RESISTANCE CONFERENCE 2010

DISCOURSE, POWER, RESISTANCE

Annual Conference
30 March – 1 April 2010
University of Greenwich, London

The 9th conference in the ‘Discourse, Power, Resistance’ (DPR) series has moved from Manchester Metropolitan University to its new host in the School of Education and Training at the University of Greenwich, and will be held at the University of Greenwich, London, United Kingdom, between 30 March and 1 April, 2010.

The venue is part of a world heritage site laid out in the late 17th and early 18th Centuries by Sir Christopher Wren and his successors. The conference will use the King William Building and the Stephen Lawrence Building, named in honour of Stephen Lawrence, killed some four miles away from Greenwich by racists in 1993 and now a symbol in the campaign for racial and social justice.

The title of the conference is simple: Trust. The conference will look at issues of trust in the academy and beyond – in management, teaching, learning and research. The six streams of the conference are:

– Trust and Leadership in the Academy
– Trust and Panic in Education
– Research Ethics
– Trust in the Community: critical race theory
– Faith, Belief and Truth
– The Individual in a Mistrustful World

DPR 9 will look at the troubled relationships within and beyond the academy, in the UK and world-wide, where questions of trust are crucial: who can we trust, how can we know what is true, what happens when trust breaks down in the academy, in the community and internationally? What research methodology brings us an understanding deep enough to trust, and why is this methodology so often still suspected and dismissed by managers and policy-makers at all levels?
