International Conference on Music Education, Equity, and Social Justice

October 6-8, 2006
New York, NY, USA

The program in music and music education at Teachers College Columbia University will sponsor an international conference to disseminate research in music education that investigates issues of educational equity and social justice. The conference organizers intentionally seek a diversity of research approaches, ranging from the philosophical to the empirical, addressing topics such as curriculum and teaching, policy and administration, teacher education, testing and assessment, formal and informal contexts, and performance practice. We wish to engage topics that speak to all stages and phases of schooling from preschool and early childhood to higher and adult education.

Conference aim:
Challenging questions surround the conference theme. How do issues of equity inform music teaching and learning? What does it mean to teach music through the lens of social justice or social consciousness? How is a philosophy of equity and democracy enacted? What can research on this topic reveal? This conference seeks to explore the relationships between meanings and practice, and to provide implications for further study in this field.
