The Praxis Symposium event, now in its fourth edition, has become an important meeting for academics and other professionals that are interested in higher education and the challenges and contradictions that characterize academic work and responsibility in turbulent times. The symposium will take place at the Faculty of Education, University of Gothenburg, but will also be offered as a hybrid event.
This fourth Praxis symposium offers a forum for dialogue to discuss possible directions for a (re)orientation of higher education through a praxis lens. Praxis here means to engage with the educational and civic missions of the university in terms of a balancing act between its endeavours to reproduce and reinforce certain aspects of society on the one hand, and its commitment to change, transformation and professional action on the other.
The organizing commitee invites papers that provoke discussion about, but are not limited to, the following themes:
The following information should be included in the abstract (max 600 words)
The organizing commitee also encourage alternative formats for paper presentations and would like to open up for dialogic round tables where authors gather around a theme/issue. These kinds of sessions will run in parallel in the program and are organized by a team of participants that will send their abstracts as belonging to a dialogic round table session. The format for each abstract must follow the specifications above but need to be sent in one document with a short intro that provides a background about the theme.
