Conference Theme

Today’s education landscape has become increasingly diverse. In the past quarter century we’ve seen an increase in degree-granting institutions, a growing international focus, and record breaking student demographics. From Kindergarten to postgraduate studies, we are living in the new mode of difference. A critical question, however, is whether all this diversity is starting to look the same. This is to say, have we become indifferent to difference? Against a standard of ‘sameness’, are we conflicted by difference? This year’s theme, “in-difference: conflict and diversity,” celebrates how our work and ideas can contribute to a better understanding of diversity.
