Teachers College’s Anthropology program is hosting the Third Conference on Anthropology and Education on October 26th and 27th. They are currently accepting submissions until the April 15th deadline! This year’s theme is centered on “The Work of Education” with a focus on the exploration of the human condition through the consideration of how education is done beyond the school and in diverse contexts. Check out Teachers College’s Anthropology of Education site for more details on the conference theme and submission requirements.
If you are attending the American Educational Research Association (AERA) this year, please join authors and co-founders of the Center for Multiple Languages and Literacies Ofelia Garcia and Jo Anne Kleifgen at their book signing event in support of their bestseller Educating Emergent Bilinguals: Policies, Programs, and Practices for English (2nd edition). The book will be 50% off while supplies last!
Ofelia Garcia (CUNY Graduate Center) and Jo Anne Kleifgen (Teachers College, Columbia University) are distinguished scholars in the field of urban and bilingual education and their seminal publication is essential for all educators, policymakers and researchers.
