Call for Abstracts: 2022-23 Knowledge Forum

Posted February 8, 2022

The Faculty of Education is excited to announce a call for abstracts for the 2022-23 Knowledge Forum. The topic is Education at Risk/Education as a Human Right.

In this issue we invite those from both the Scholars at Risk network and the Queen’s education community to share their stories, research, and ideas about education at risk. This issue will share experiences from the Scholars at Risk community and explore how we support, navigate, struggle, and triumph when our ability to research, teach, and learn are under threat.

Successful contributions will speak to a wide audience and may include traditional academic papers or essays, as well as creative pieces such as personal reflection, poetry, painting, photography, and even musical compositions or video essays.

Abstracts for papers, essays, and reflections of up to 150 words are due by Tuesday, March 15, 2022. Creative submissions (photography, poetry, painting, etc.) should be submitted in their entirety with a description of up to 50 words describing the piece’s relation to the theme.

We welcome abstracts from alumni, graduate students, teachers, administrators, academics, and policy makers – anyone who has a story to share!

Topics may include, but are by no means limited to:

Education in conflict zones
Refugee education
Human rights policy and education, e.g. United Nations Sustainability Goals
Human rights as it pertains to culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy
Academic freedom and related threats to lives, liberty and well-being

Email the Knowledge Forum Committee to submit your abstract. Please note your affiliation with the Faculty of Education (alumni, student, instructor, etc.) or your affiliation with the Scholar at Risk network.

Contributors will be notified in late March if their abstract/creative submission has been accepted. Papers/written creative submissions should be 750-1000 words in length (including all references) and will be due August 2, 2022.
