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?
