Racism and Education

Addressing the Concept and Evidence of Institutional Racism from an Irish Perspective

Prof Mairtin Mac an Ghaill (Newman University College Birmingham)

University College Cork 01:00 :: 17th February 2012

A conference and networking event hosted by the School of Education and the Institute for Social Sciences in the 21st Century, University College Cork:
The purpose of the conference is to review the research evidence of institutional racism within the Irish education system, and to discuss further priorities for education policy making. We will look at racism in education from multiple angles, ranging from the issue of bullying to the sometimes unintended, unequal consequences of institutional practices. The main focus will be on schooling, but pre-school, further training, 3rd level and other related areas of social and education policy will not be ignored.
The internationally renowned scholar Professor Mairtin Mac an Ghaill of Newman University College, Birmingham, will address the conference. A space will also be made to dialogue and to build on existing networks on this topic.
The conference includes a workshop element and has now reached capacity. However, if you would like to participate, please send an email to join the waiting list to antiracismeducation@gmail.com.
