The Latin American Philosophy of Education Society (LAPES) and its journal LÁPIZ welcome submissions for a two-day symposium and special edition journal on the theme Learning Across Liberation Theologies, to explore the links between liberation theology, pedagogy, and activism. Slated keynote speakers: Mark Lewis Taylor (Princeton Theological Seminary) and Chris Tirres (DePaul University).

The LAPES 2020 Symposium will consist of a mix of invited speakers and speakers chosen from a pool of submitted proposals. Accepted proposals will be invited to publish in LÁPIZ N˚6 or in another format on the LAPES website. Presenting at the LAPES 2020 Symposium, however, is not a condition for publication. We welcome proposals for presentations and publications in English, Spanish or Portuguese. We particularly encourage contributions from scholars, educators, practitioners, and activists working in the Global South. There is no fee to participate in or attend LAPES 2020. LÁPIZ is an open-access journal. 

***A few travel grants are available for submissions to present at the LAPES 2020 Symposium from participants without institutional support, especially those from Latin America.**

Full submission guidelines are available on our website.
