| March 10, 2015

LAPESPoster_Arial_Black_V2The Latin American Philosophy of Education Society (LAPES) is hosting its annual symposium March 26-28 at Teachers College and Columbia University. Centered around the theme of “Post-Neoliberal Latin American Philosophy of Education: An Education Always Already Present, or an Education Yet to Come?” the symposium will feature four guest speakers, three “conversatorios,” or workshops, and an art exhibit open to the general public.

Professor Lilia D. Monzo of Chapman University will open the weekend’s events on Thursday, March 26, 5:30-7:30p at TC in Horace Mann 150 with a lecture titled “Pushing Back on Neo/ibera/ism and Paving the Road for Class struggle: Decolonity, Buen Vivir, and other lessons from America Latina.” On Friday and Saturday, the symposium moves to CSER on the Columbia campus, where they will further investigate…

…in a collective fashion, the history of neo-liberalism in Latin American education, how it influences Latin American education theory and practice today, and what forms post-neoliberal education philosophy and practice might adopt in, and outside, the region of Latin America.

The Symposium is sponsored by CSER (Center for the Studies of Ethnicity and Race at Columbia University), and the Philosophy and Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University.
