WHERE NOW FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE? THE MARGINALISATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE UK

Thursday 12th ­ Friday 13th June 2014

Closing date for submissions is 14th March 2014

We are inviting abstracts for a two day Conference held at Canterbury Christ
Church University, Canterbury, Kent, UK.

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 in relation to children and marginalised young people, including
those from education, health and social care, social policy, housing,
sociology and criminology disciplines. We are also interested in papers
exploring innovative research methods with children and young people. Issues
for papers include:

€ Impact of poverty and inequality on children and young people

€ Marginalisation of children and young people

€ Use of innovative research methods

€ Role of education in reproducing inequality

€ Pedagogies of inclusion in schools and universities

€ Diverse identities of children and 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
