This conference welcomes proposals that take critical pedagogy in new directions for a new generation. The goal is to build upon past accomplishments of critical pedagogy while moving beyond its historical limitations. This includes efforts that revisit and re-evaluate established topics in the field or take on new areas of contestation. Any issues related to education, labor, and emancipation, broadly defined and from any geographical context, are encouraged. The theoretical perspectives used to look at these issues might include, but are not limited to, the following:

Critical race theory; womanism; mujerismo; queer theory; indigenous perspectives and theory; globalization and neoliberal counterhegemonic discourses; liberation theology; critical environmental studies; critical transnational studies; critical poststructural studies; critical postmodern studies; critical postcolonial studies; critical feminist theory; critical constructivism, etc.

The University of Texas at El Paso, Universidad Aut?noma de Ciudad Ju?rez, New Mexico State University, and University of New Mexico are pleased to announce a unique participative opportunity for the academic community. Scholars and distinguished speakers in the fields of critical pedagogy, education, social justice, Latin American labor relations, and global comparative studies will be brought together in an interactive forum. Participants will present their own unique perspective and theories on the limits and possibilities for liberation of policy and practice.
