About the University:
Azim Premji University was established in Karnataka by the Azim Premji University Act 2010. The beginnings of the University are in the learning and experience of a decade of work in elementary education by the Azim Premji Foundation.
About the Conference:
The theme of this Conference is “Nation, Nationalism and the question of Education”. Nationalism is both a means of social cohesion and an expression of a collective identity. However, some expressions of nationalism often violate the very cohesiveness it is founded upon and differing notions of the collective national identity trigger conflicts rather than encouraging cohesion.
Date and Venue:
January 10 – 12, 2019, Azim Premji University, Bangalore, India.
Research scholars, young faculty working in Education, Philosophy, Psychology, and Political Theory and experienced educational practitioners.
Papers: Submissions on any topic related to the themes of nationalism and education are welcome. Papers (suitable for a 25-30 minute presentation, and no longer than 5,000 words) should be submitted via the system of online submission on our website. All papers must be prepared for blind review and include a short abstract (not more than 600 words).
Posters: Work in progress academic papers/projects, or rich descriptions of good practices related to the theme (for e.g. a good practice of teaching patriotism, dealing with conflicts in class) in the form of a poster are welcome in this category. They have to be submitted with a brief written description (not more than 1200 words) of the poster and the idea presented. We encourage posters from practitioners of education, teachers, curriculum developers, textbook writers.
