Invitation to Turku 2020

The annual congress of Nordic Educational Research Association (NERA) will be held next spring on 4–6 March 2020 at Turku University in Finland. As part of the congress the Social Pedagogy Network will organize paper sessions around social pedagogical questions. As coordinators for the Social Pedagogy Network, we would like to welcome you to submit an abstract and share your research or field work experiences connected to social pedagogy. It is also possible to present a poster.

The congress has an overall theme Rethinking the futures of education in the Nordic countries. The presentations in the Social Pedagogy Network are expected to have a connection to social pedagogy as a discipline or a field of practice and they can explore questions related to e.g. socialisation, participation, marginalisation, immigration, globalisation and transnational issues, lifeworld perspectives and vulnerable groups.

Online submission for the abstracts will be open until 15 November 2019. See the details at: https://nera2020.fi/abstracts.

The Social Pedagogy Network coordinators, by direction of NERA, will present a program based on the accepted abstracts. We hope that the program will be very interesting.

Besides the paper sessions and poster presentations we are organising symposia and roundtable discussions (see: Call for Papers). You are very welcome to join all these sessions.
