The Department of Cultural and Educational Policy Studies and The School of Education at Loyola University Chicago are pleased to announce a conference, to be held on October 25th, 2014.
An international team of scholars will present fresh and substantive contributions on “Theorizing Gun Violence in Schools.” Presentations will address a range of relevant questions, including: Why are schools stages for gun violence? What might school shootings say about schools’ education of students’ emotions? What part does media play? How is gun violence related to the US history of racial oppression? How does violence look from an international perspective? What part does masculine honor play? What are appropriate policy responses to gun violence in schools?
The conference, at Loyola’s Water Tower Campus, will run from 9-5 on October 25th and is free and open to the public. We welcome all who are interested in the timely subject of school violence.
