EASA 2018 Conference News

Jun 05 2017

The annual conference set for the 14th to 17th of January 2018 brings the association to the golden mile of Durban’s beach front set against the backdrop of sunny skies, world class beaches and great hospitality of the multicultural Durban, rich in heritage and history.

The School of Education at the University of KwaZulu-Natal is host to the January 2018 annual conference.  This iteration of the conferences promises to offer invigorating presentations, cutting edge conservations and deep engagements in issues across Education in South Africa and beyond.  The tentative theme of the conference is: Imagining education in South Africa within the context of the current discourses and debates, with a view to providing some innovative ideas and intellectualisms into what we have learnt and how might education in South Africa unfold in the next decade.

Exciting in this forthcoming conference is that acceptance of abstracts will have an immediate turnaround time.  Even more exciting is that delegates would get a chance to select the spot in the 4-day programme to do your presentations – but only if you register and pay your registration fees soon after acceptance of your abstracts. 

Call for papers will be sent out shortly together with more details about the conference theme, venues, accommodation opportunities and keynote speakers.

Watch this space and EASA website for more details of the conference as further planning progresses.
