The Arts, Humanities and Education Division of ATINER is organizing a Small Symposium on Education as part of the 8th Annual International Conference on Humanities & Arts in a Global World which will be held in Athens, Greece on 4-7 January 2021. The symposium is sponsored by the Athens Journal of Education & the Athens Journal of Humanities & Arts.
The aim of this symposium is to bring together scholars and students of Education, Pedagogy, and other related disciplines in order to discuss all aspects and latest developments within the related fields. These areas of research include history, sociology, philosophy, psychology, economics of education, education policies and laws, science education, and even media, communication and technology studies, race and ethnic studies, feminist and cultural studies, and every conceivable scientific area that pertains to all levels of education – primary, secondary and higher. In the spirit of this interdisciplinary approach, papers (in English) from all the aforementioned scientific and research areas are welcome. You may participate as presenter of one paper or observer.
Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/fees.
Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, an Athens educational walking tour, and an one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here.
