We are writing to remind those interested in attending The 2nd Sociocultural Theory in Education Conference: Theory, Identity and Learning that the deadlines are approaching. The deadline for abstract submission is 15 May (notifications will be sent by 1 June) and early registration fees are due before 1 June.
The 2nd Sociocultural Theory in Education Conference: Theory, Identity and Learning will be held at the University of Manchester from 10-11 September 2007 (starting 10.30am 10th Sept., ending 4:30pm 11th Sept.)
Scheduled keynote speakers with expertise in sociocultural theory, mathematics education, and science education include:
Landsdowne Professor Wolff-Michael Roth, Applied Cognitive Science, University of Victoria, British Columbia
Professor Anna Sfard, Department of Education, University of Haifa, Israel; Institute of Education, University of London; Division of Science and Mathematics Education, Michigan State University, US
Dr Etienne Wenger, Independent Researcher and Consultant on Communities of Practice
Professor Julian Williams, Learning, Teaching and Assessment, University of Manchester
The conference is organised by the Socio-cultural Theory Interest Group (ScTIG), School of Education with support from the British Academy in the form of a British Conference Grant.
Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts and papers in advance for publication on the conference website, and subsequently for reading prior to the sessions. The conference aims to stimulate debate and to inform understanding of new ways of theorizing the active subject within socio-cultural theory within the context of empirical studies of learning in school and other learning contexts. Apart from the keynote addresses, we do not intend that participants' papers will be presented orally; however, participation in academic debate is very much the ethos of the conference. We see the purpose of the abstracts/papers as being to fuel the discussion, and also to give participants the opportunity to share their ideas with others in a spirit of collegiate collaboration.
You can find out more about us and the conference via our website www.lta.education.manchester.ac.uk/ScTIG/index.htm

Please feel free to email valerie.farnsworth@manchester.ac.uk if you experience any problems accessing the website, or need registration forms mailed to you in other formats. A limited number of student bursaries are available and applications are available online or from Valerie Farnsworth.

We hope to meet you at the conference.

Dr Valerie Farnsworth, Dr Pauline Davis,
and the Sociocultural Theory Interest Group Conference Committee
