IMPORTANT DATES - Azim Premji University
6TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF CESI
The 6th Annual International Conference of the Comparative Education Society of India
(CESI) is being held at Azim Premji University, Bengaluru on 14-16 December 2015. The
theme of this year’s conference is ‘Education: Domination, Emancipation and Dignity'
and is about the double-edged character of education. Education may actually be party to a
blocking of opportunities and the forcing of people into relations of subjugation. Or under
certain circumstances, education may actually help in opening up new opportunities and
access to resources and build new and empowering relationships. In many situations
education could participate in denial of respect and space for less powerful cultures
whereas, done another way, it could help them find confidence and dignity in their
relationships with others. This conference tries to bring together scholars, academics,
activists and NGO personnel from across the country to explore both faces of education
and engage in a constructive critique of educational processes.
