Call for submissions: Philosophy and Theory of Higher Education Conference

Universities under siege?

Time: 19–20 October, 2020
Place: Uppsala University

“The crisis of the university” is a familiar topos in contemporary discussions about higher education. It is said that the University is facing untold threats from, inter alia, the anti-intellectualism of populist politicians and authoritarian regimes, the commodification of knowledge resulting from neo-liberal ideas about utility and international competition, the politicization of teaching and learning arising out of identity movements, the fragmenting of the university in response to stakeholder demands, and so forth. This conference poses the question: Is this really the case? And, if so, what exactly is being threatened?

Deadline for abstract submissions: 28. February 2020

  • What are the dominant processes in education and learning that extend far into the future?
  • How do researchers, by their own scientific constructs and categorizations, shape and take responsibility for the understanding of education and learning in society?

What kind of global role the Nordic countries want to take in developing education in the future?
