CALL FOR PAPERS

IV International Conference on Critical Education

The outbreak of the economic, social, and political crisis is affecting education at a global scale. The crisis, in tandem with the dominant neoliberal and neoconservative politics that are implemented and promoted internationally as the only solution, redefine the sociopolitical and ideological role of education. Public education is shrinking. It loses its status as a social right. It is projected as a mere commodity for sale while it becomes less democratic and critical.

Understanding the causes of the crisis, the special forms it takes in different countries and the multiple ways in which it influences education, constitutes important questions for all those who do not limit their perspectives to the horizon of neoconservative, neoliberal and technocratic dogmas. Moreover, the critical education movement has the responsibility to rethink its views and practices in light of the crisis as well as the paths that this crisis opens for challenging and overthrowing capitalist domination worldwide.

The International Conference on Critical Education, which was held in Athens in 2011 and 2012 and Ankara in 2013, provides a platform for scholars, educators, activists and others interested in the subject to come together and engage in a free, democratic and productive dialogue. At a time of crisis when public education is under siege by neoliberalism and neoconservatism, we invite you to submit a proposal and to attend the IV International Conference on Critical Education to reflect on the theory and practice of critical education and to contribute to the field.

HAYMARKET BOOKS FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER

New: Lucy Parsons: An American Revolutionary 

by Carolyn Ashbaugh
(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Lucy-Parsons)
Described by the Chicago Police as “more dangerous than a thousand rioters,” Lucy Parsons remains one of the most fascinating figures in US history.  As a mixed-race woman in Texas, likely born enslaved, Parsons became one of the most militant leaders in the radical labor movement at the turn of the century. 

“LUCY PARSON’S LIFE expressed the anger of the unemployed workers, women, and minorities against oppression and is exemplary of radicals’ efforts to organize the working class for social change”
—From the Preface

“Etan Thomas is breaking it down for our young minds on how to be a vital part of this challenging world we all live in. Let’s give it up for Etan.” 
––Spike Lee

(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/The-Mexican-Revolution-1910-1920)

“[The Mexican Revolution] is a erudite and theoretically sophisticated, yet broadly accessible and completely jargon free, this study combines qualities not usually found in a single volume. . . . an important contribution to the study of revolutions. A must read!”—Samuel Farber

(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/The-John-Carlos-Story-paperback)

“John Carlos is an American hero. And finally he has written a memoir to tell us his story—and a powerful story it is. I couldn’t put this book down.”
—Michael Moore

“Packing an enormous emotional punch, Elizabeth Laird brings us a topical book about Lebanon that will do more for a child’s understanding of war than a news report ever could, yet it is neither frightening nor distressing. Smart, punchy writing and full empathy for the child’s perspective. Highly recommended.
—Jill Murphy, The Bookbag
 
(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Red-Sky-in-the-Morning)

“It is, quite simply, a wonderfully moving story about the power of love.” 
—Times Educational Supplement
 
(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/A-Little-Piece-of-Ground)
”A Little Piece of Ground shows what life is like for Palestinians who see their homes destroyed by Israeli bulldozers or face road blocks, military check points, and embarrassing strip searches, simply while trying to get to work or school.”
—Lucine Kasbarian, IndyKids

“Chris Williams’ scientific knowledge shines through and it is obvious that he has put an immense amount of work into this excellent book….This is a very informative and interesting book that should be read by all greens and socialists.”—Green Left Weekly
 
(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Kivalina)

“This story is a tragedy, and not just because of what’s happening to the people of Kivalina. It’s a tragedy because it’s unnecessary, the product, as the author shows, of calculation, deception, manipulation, and greed in some of the biggest and richest companies on earth.”
—Bill McKibben, author Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet
 
(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Too-Many-People)
“This excellent book is steadfast in its refutations of the flabby, misogynist and sometimes racist thinking that population growth catastrophists use to peddle their claims. It’s just the thing to send populationists scurrying back to their bunkers.”
—Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved
