ARPCE Online Social Justice Seminar Series 2021

We are delighted to announce the launch of the ARPCE Online Social Justice Seminar Series. Issues of social justice have always been at the forefront of research in post compulsory education, however the pandemic has put a spotlight on the persistence of social inequality, particularly in education, giving debates in social justice a renewed focus. The series attempts to bring together researchers with insights into issues of social justice and creates an online space for discussions about research in attempts to move knowledge and practice forward. The series will be launched with our first theme, Race and Education on the 21st April 2021. The series and dates for your diaries are as follows:
