Dear Graduate Students:

You are cordially invited to submit a proposal for Education in Action: The 15th Annual York University Graduate Conference in Education.

What does education in action mean to you? This is the question we pose and welcome a myriad of responses. By doing so, we hope to put the idea of democracy in action into practice. Ultimately,  we would like to intentionally broaden the scope of democracy and allow participants to construct their own ideas of democracy. We leave room for interpretation and creative imagination. We look forward to your submissions!

We welcome relevant proposals for panel presentations (approx. 15 mins/presentation).

Some ideas/topics for consideration in drafting proposals:

  • Social Justice
  • Social Inclusion
  • Diversity
  • Agency
  • Advocacy
  • Human Rights

  • Equity
