67.042 - International Approaches to "Talking Back" to Structural Racism and Exclusion in Education

Mon, April 8, 4:10 to 6:10pm, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Floor: 800 Level, Room 803A

Session Type: Symposium


This symposium deals with a major challenge for education internationally: how researchers can elucidate the problems of structural racism and exclusion in ways that “talk back” to contemporary right-wing populism and scientism to advance social equity in education. It addresses this challenge by bringing together an international group of scholars trained in the USA, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and the UK and drawing on different data sets to compare different theoretical and methodological approaches to social equity research internationally, including quantitative intersectional research, visual methods, case studies, narrative and critical quantitative methods, to advance social justice in education.
