On February 25, 2000, the Harvard Graduate School of Education will hold its fifth annual Student Research Conference, one of the most important and only opportunities in the Harvard calendar for students to present their research. Over 180 students will discuss their work on critical issues in education: mind/brain research, religious pluralism and public education; gender inequality; gay, lesbian, and bisexual learners; and new technologies in education. Most panels feature faculty discussants, and the entire conference is being organized by students.
International Forum to Follow
The conference will be immediately followed by the International Forum, to take place at 6pm in the Askwith Lecture Hall, Longfellow Hall. This year's forum is entitled "Questionable Futures: Globalization, Development and Education", and will gather a panel of internationally recognized speakers, including Johnathan Jansen from The University of Durban in South Africa, to address the relationship between the global economy and education, and provide alternative perspectives to mainstream globalization rhetoric.
The Student Research Conference and International Forum will take place on February 25, 2000 from 9:00 am - 7:30 pm at the Gutman Conference Center, Harvard Graduate School of Education, Appian Way, Cambridge.
