Globalizing flows of people, information, ideas, language varieties, goods, capitals, and technology make their way into traditional and innovative educational spaces today as never before. These dynamic flows shape who our current students, teachers, and families are; the diversified strengths they bring to learning; our approaches to effective teaching; and, ultimately, what abilities will prepare the next generation as global citizens. Ethnographic and qualitative research provides keen analytical tools to capture and understand the complex and vibrant realities in which we experience education in such dynamic times and lends itself to telling the stories of newcomers that often go unnoticed or unheard.

The 32nd Ethnography in Education Forum will seek to explore the following types of questions: How do learning, teaching and researching take on new forms amidst dynamic flows of people and growing numbers of Diaspora communities? How do educators foster spaces that build upon the cultural and languaging resources young people bring to contexts of learning? How do we navigate the obstacles of teaching, learning, and researching with those who differ from us? What knowledges, ideas, relationships, and technologies are learners and teachers drawing on to make sense of these dynamic times and spaces?

Convenor: Dr. Nancy H. Hornberger

Coordinators: Sarah Lipinoga and Ming-Hsuan Wu

Plenary Speakers:
Jan Blommaert, Tilburg University, the Netherlands
Gerald Campano, University of Pennsylvania, USA
Norma González, University of Arizona, USA
Stacey J. Lee, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
