The Harvard Graduate School of Education (GSE) will hold its fifth annual Student Research Conference and International Forum on Feb. 25, from 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Gutman Conference Center.
The conference is one of the only opportunities in the Harvard calendar for GSE students to present their research. More than 180 students will discuss their work on critical issues in education: mind/brain research; religious pluralism and public education; gender inequality; gay, lesbian, and bisexual learners; and new technologies in education. Organized entirely by students, the conference will feature several panel discussions with GSE faculty.
The International Forum will begin at 6 p.m. in the Askwith Lecture Hall, Longfellow Hall. This year’s forum, “Questionable Futures: Globalization, Development and Education,” will feature a panel of internationally recognized speakers, including Johnathan Jansen, of the University of Durban in South Africa. Panelists will address the relationship between the global economy and education, and will provide alternative perspectives to mainstream globalization rhetoric. The Gutman Conference Center is located in the Gutman Library, Appian Way. For more information, contact Simon Norton at (617) 495-5903.
