Women’s Network of ECREA is pleased to invite submissions to a workshop to be held on the 11th April 2017 at the Educational Research Institute, Gerbiceva 62, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The aim of this year’s international workshop is to tackle some of the (most) relevant issues of the classroom communication today. Amid them are – as identified – classroom experiences with immigrant children which entails also wider analyses and examples of communication among teachers, children and their families. Furthermore, in this vein, we will engage in analysing gendered discourses in education and communication. Contributions dealing with these aspects will be welcomed, as well as those covering wider research areas pertaining to our key words that are: gender, migration and interaction (separately or interconnectedly), possibly in connection with educational discourses and/or media coverage of these discourses.

Reminder: Some years ago Women’s Network of ECREA asked scholars to write an essay of 1–2 pages titled: “Me, my academy and my family”. The essay was “Your Story” about your choices and reconciliation between academic career and family life. Some of us also met in Tallinn University at our workshop in 2013 where we decided to publish a book on this theme.
We would now like to invite scholars to write a longer story/contribution about the reconciliation of your academic career and family life. It could also be more analytically oriented or a combination of both perspectives. The recommended length is 15–25 pages.
The editor-in-chief is Teija Waaramaa. Please contact her for all additional information, submission of articles and the like. (Important: please state your intention beforehand, i.e. before actually submitting a contribution.)
The deadline set for the submission of the contributions is April 9th 2017.
