*Call For Papers*

Hamilton, New Zealand, 22- 25 November 2014*

*The theme of this year's conference is Education as Philosophies of

The term 'engagement' suggests many aspects crucial not only to education,
but to living in our contemporary globalised world. Engagement invokes
thoughts about the relational, the personal; to cultures, religions;
physical, emotional, psychological and virtual spaces; contesting
political, economic and social critique and encompassing notions of civic
engagement and activism; of engaging the stranger and the foreigner, the
self, the 'thou' and 'other'. Engagement signals the importance of
traversing philosophical possibilities and negotiating ways to deal with
contrasting or conflicting views - with anger, with violence and war.  How
can we/ought we engage with each other and with world issues such as
inequalities, child poverty, female education, genocide, democracy and so
on based on these provocations?

*Submissions can be in the form of refereed papers, presentations or
symposia. Abstracts due by 7 JULY.*

*Further information is available from the
