International Globalization, Diversity

Activism and Education: Learning with(in) Lived Experiences
February 27-28, 2014 - Northern Quest Resort & Casino
A message from Pam Bettis, conference chair
In the past decade, the Globalization, Diversity, and Education Conference has unfolded into a different type of gathering: one that strives for community through deep meaningful conversations about difficult global and local social problems, possibilities and action. We have been moved to laughter and tears by powerful keynote speakers and documentaries that pushed us out of our heads into our hearts. In the spirit of building a Northwest community of engaged scholars, activists and thinkers from an array of academic arenas and organizations, we welcome students, teachers, professors and community organizers to join us in the worthy and difficult work of facilitating more equitable thinking, teaching, learning, schooling, and being in the world.
