PPI Conference 2020

Our annual conference will this year take place as a series of online seminars

Our original theme was provoked by the recent bush fires in Australia but now in light of us staying locally, this theme has new resonance.  

Public Pedagogies of Location

We are excited by the response to our call out for presentations addressing the theme of Public Pedagogies of Location, which will this year be run as series of seminars in place of our regular yearly conference.

Initially a response to the bushfires in Australia this theme has taken on added meaning in light of our lived experience of COVID 19.  As a result of the virus we are faced with our location.  This can be understood in many different ways, our immediate physical surrounds, our neighbourhood, our digital world, our countries.  We are all positioned in a space where the possibilities of what is to come are yet to be revealed. This seminar series will engage with Public Pedagogies of Location in ways that stimulate reflection, intellectually challenge us but importantly connect us.
