Globalization Conference – Welcome from the Conference Chair


Globalization, Diversity, and Education Conference 2018 (#GDE2018)

Power and Cultural Politics in Antiracist and Decolonial Education and Educational Research: Intersectionality, Resistance, and Survival

February 22-23, 2018
Northern Quest Resort, Airway Heights, WA

Welcome from the Conference Chair


The Thirteenth Annual Globalization, Diversity, and Education conference follows on over a decade of creative experimentation to bring high quality research and practice to bear on difficult global and local social problems, possibilities and action. Characterized by scholarly engagement and artistic imagination, these conferences energize the minds and souls of participants.

For the second year we have an explicit thematic connection to the host university’s strategic plan, in particular the “Grand Challenge” of “Advancing Opportunity and Equity” identified by the WSU Office of Research.

Come enjoy stimulating conversations, lively arts presentations, a vibrant graduate student presence enhanced by mentoring sessions with advanced scholars, in a critically engaged but supportive atmosphere.

In the spirit of building a hospitable and international 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.
