The Education Project
Welcome to the Project:
This interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary project considers all aspects of education. Education is all pervasive; policy, administration as well as management are increasingly involved in defining what it means to be educated in the modern day context. Not only pedagogues, politicians, lawmakers or parents have something to say about it, it is just as interesting to anthropologists, psychologists, historians, artists, writers, media makers and – first and foremost – pupils and students; each one can contribute to the matter, as school is indeed a metaphor for life. This project therefore seeks to bring together participants from a broad range of backgrounds to address the full range of ideas concerning the good, the bad and the ugly of education.
Core Themes for Development
The Education Project, will explore and assess a number of core themes:
- Educational contexts: National, transnational and global
- Educational reality
- Modern, alternative, dystopian, utopian
- Policies, theories and ideologies:
- School and education in art, fiction and the media:
Related themes will also be identified for development and exploration. Out of our deliberations it is anticipated that a series of related cross context research projects will develop.
