European social sciences and the globalisation of education and training:
toward a new reflexive and critical framework?
17, 18 and 19 November 2014
UFR Human and Social Sciences
University of Picardy Jules Verne (Amiens)
This conference follows on the discussions started at Congresses of the AISLF, AFEC and EERA. Several research units, journals and learned societies wished for further in-depth reflection on the changes affecting social sciences educational research and their repositioning.
Thus, the conference aims to debate on three issues which are as many aspects of the same object:
• Elaborating a new framework to show the new state of the world, characterised by a parallel restructuring of forms of justice and forms of State in a globalised context.
• While building a new framework, keeping high theoretical standards and a « critical » stance (insofar as it seeks to shun normative ideological discourses) supported by European traditions.
• Keeping epistemological and linguistic pluralism in dissemination and validation tools
The conference will tackle these issues at all levels : school education, higher education, vocational training, lifelong learning, etc.
