Ariadne Pfad:


Educating for Migrant Integration - Integrating Migration into Education: European and North American Comparisons

21.09.2006 - 23.09.2006

University of Toronto
University of Toronto, Toronto / Canada Link

The conference will address the interrelated questions of immigrant incorporation and education in a comparative framework, drawing on European and North American experiences. The focus may be contemporary or historical (1945 to the present). The main areas of interest for the conference will be:
The analysis of educational systems, policies and practices in immigration societies
The attention educational systems give to immigration and diversity
Ways in which education enhances or limits the integration of migrants
The adaptation of curricula and textbooks to the needs of immigrant integration and representation
Reforms and changes of educational systems and practices to accommodate to large-scale migration and immigrant incorporation, and the effects they have had
The analysis of the successes/failures of immigrants in educational systems
The workshop is open to scholars in the Humanities and the Social Sciences in the widest sense (anthropology, education, ethnology, geography, history, law, political sciences, sociology). Abstracts for papers will be considered on a competitive basis. The number of speakers will be limited to 20 (plus external participants/audience). Half of the places will be reserved for younger scholars (advanced Ph.D. candidates and recent post-docs). The organizers will cover expenses for accommodation and food. Financial support to subsidize travel expenses can be applied for on an individual basis.
Submissions of abstracts (max. of 600 words) and a short biographical note (not more than two pages) including a list of (selected) publications are welcomed until May 15 2006.
