THE FIFTH CAMBRIDGE SYMPOSIUM ON KNOWLEDGE IN EDUCATION
1-3 July 2019
Jesus College, University of Cambridge
The symposium will again bring together researchers and teachers who see knowledge as an object of study that is central to addressing all educational questions. Aimed at exploring the social conditions of knowledge production and exchange as well as its structuring in the curriculum, the symposium’s central concern will be with the promotion of access for all to cognitively powerful forms of knowledge as a principle of social justice and as a means of interrupting the reproduction of social inequality. Especially encouraged are contributions from those currently engaged in empirical enquiries into curricula, pedagogy and assessment that are informed by the family of traditions, such as social realism and Bernsteinian studies, which has established this as a primary focus.
