IRMSS 2017 THEME:
Perennial Questions and Innovative Methods: Language, Learning and Culture Across Schools, Communities and Society
The theme for the summer school has been chosen as a responsive and relevant opportunity for the dissemination of the significant body of postgraduate and early career research on language, learning and culture currently underway in colleges and universities, nationally and internationally.
We welcome proposal abstracts from novice and seasoned researchers working in qualitative, quantitative and hermeneutical research traditions in education, the social sciences and the arts and humanities, among other traditions
Our goal is to bring together researchers interested in pursuing the possibilities and potentials of research in new, different and alternative discursive and representational spaces and in the context of a memorable social, professional and residential community of practice.
Papers and posters at IRMSS 2017 will :
- Explore language, learning and culture as variables of social analysis.
- Discuss language, learning and culture as troublesome knowledge that is counter-intuitive, alien and alternative to prevailing research orthodoxies.
- Discuss language, learning and culture as a variable of impact, influence and engagement in the public and policy spheres.
