“Where now for social justice? The marginalisation of young people in the UK”

This two day conference will be held at Canterbury Christ Church University on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 June 2014.

We are seeking papers which challenge the dominant ideologies and notions of social justice that are driving current changes in social and educational policy. We are particularly interested in papers which explore social justice and innovative research methods in relation to marginalised young people, including those from education, health and social care, social policy and sociology disciplines.

conference posterIssues for papers include:

  • Innovative research methods with vulnerable and marginalised young people
  • Impact of poverty and inequality on young people
  • Marginalisation of young people
  • Role of education in reproducing inequality
  • Pedagogies of inclusion in schools and universities
  • Diverse identities of young people, including:
  • Gender
  • Sexuality
  • Ethnicity
  • Children in care

Proposals of 300 words are invited for consideration for 20 minute papers (followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion).

Please submit abstracts to Charmian Cowie: charmian.cowie@canterbury.ac.uk
