To all Sociology of Education Thematic Group Members
As the new co-convenors of the TASA Sociology of Education thematic group, we are looking for member ideas, suggestions and/or expressions of interest for plenaries, workshops, or other activities such as setting up a blog or another online presence for the group, and updating our stated Aims & Objectives (follow link above). We will be meeting in the first week of June 2014 and would like to collate suggestions and decide how to progress our group. Please find below a list of key dates for 2014.
We look forward to re-invigorating interest in the Sociology of Education at TASA and to respond to the expressed interests and concerns of our members. The 2014 TASA Conference Organising Committee is looking to run more plenary sessions to better allow thematic groups to profile particular research, delve into certain social developments or carry out particular initiatives. At present we have interest in possible plenary sessions relating to ‘neoliberalism, education and the shaping of social identity’; ‘digital media and platforms for communication’; and a third in ‘diversity and teacher education’. Other proposed topics, or suggestions are welcome.
We welcome your revived interest and input into this group. Please send expressions of interest, ideas, suggestions or queries to: Annabelle.Leve@gmail.com preferably before June 4 so that we can compile these and provide an up-date for members’ consideration by mid-June 2014.
Annabelle Leve, Shaun Rawolle, and Parlo Singh
