This year's topic is Education as Freedom and Transformation.  Contributors are encouraged to consider education in the diversity of its forms, and how “traditional” and/or “alternative” models, both inside and outside of the classroom, intersect with the politics of gender. What are the social, economic, and intellectual consequences of denying women and marginalized communities access to education? Alternatively, how may education serve as an act of resistance to systems of oppression throughout the world?
