CeCeps Seminar Series
The theme of the current CeCeps seminar series is Knowledge and numbers in education: examining the role of literacy attainment data in shaping policy and pedagogy
This seminar series is designed to promote conversation and debate on the role of attainment data in shaping the curriculum and driving policy change, both historically and now, here in the UK and elsewhere. Speakers from a range of different research traditions will consider the construction, design and use of different forms of numerical data in education and the role they play in shaping attention to the objects they describe.
CeCeps seminars provide an opportunity for lively debate on a range of topics that directly link to critical examination of education policy and the policy environment more broadly. We organise an annual seminar series on a particular theme that encourages sustained exploration in a given area, alongside individual seminars.
Feminisms, Gender and Sexuality Seminar Series
This group is designed for research students and staff to explore their work around feminisms, gender and sexuality. We meet informally about three times a term, twice during lunchtimes and once during the evening; at each session a speaker is invited to reflect upon their ideas as they develop, and to use the discussion space for the exploration of their own questions. Session topics located within diverse disciplines are encouraged. At least one seminar each term addresses LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer) research. The session to be held in the evening will be followed by drinks in the bar.
