In order to address the challenges of contemporary society we must move beyond the boundaries of discipline. Through the intersections, we can engage with multiple realities and explore the diversity of ideas held therein. On March 12-13, The Education Graduate Students’ Society (EGSS) invite you to be imaginative in discussing the possibilities of interdisciplinarity at their 9th annual conference, “Interdisciplinarity: Reality, Imagination & Diversity.”
Some of this year’s themes include early education, science education, identity politics, educational policy, youth issues, trauma, health, citizenship, TESOL, classroom practices, critical pedagogy, and other interdisciplinary issues. Presenters include over 50 professors, post-docs, graduate students, and researchers from McGill and across Canada. Keynote lectures will be given by M.G. Vassanji, renowned author and winner of the 1994 and 2003 Giller Prize and Fred A. Reed, international journalist, translator and three-time winner of Governor General’s Award for translation.
