In relation to the theme of “religion and recognition,” the University of Helsinki will analyse issues in equity, disequilibrium and recognition and their implications for religious and political education (from the perspectives of the disciplines of philosophy, religious studies and literature).
In relation to the theme of “care ethics and curriculum for citizenship education,” Paris 1st University will examine the feminine voice as a source of transformation in political education, with practical implications for citizenship education (from the perspectives of the disciplines of philosophy, sociology, ethics of care, and feminist studies).
In relation to the theme of “the creation of space for aesthetic judgment in education,” UCL Institute of Education will explore concrete implications of an alternative education, with reference to:
- the creation of space for aesthetic judgment in criteria and assessment;
- an experimental curriculum for the cultivation of political sensibility;
- language education for the recovery of political voice (from the perspectives of philosophy, philosophy of education and aesthetics).
