IEL Collective Teaching Workshop: Contextualising, Diversifying and Decolonising IEL Education (POSTPONED)

-

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. WE WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH A NEW DATE IN DUE COURSE. THANK YOU.

This workshop will be focused on exploring new ways of teaching and learning in IEL that speak to the Collective’s objective of contextualising, diversifying and decolonising the scholarship on IEL. In light of the growing importance of IEL subjects for shaping both scholarly thinking and policymaking nationally and globally, the workshop will seek to identify and discuss innovative pedagogical concepts and practices to nurture the next generation of IEL scholars, teachers and practitioners.

Among other things, the workshop will explore new and emerging methodologies that aim to:

  1. create more epistemically inclusive teaching of IEL;
  2. shift IEL teaching away from a narrow, self-contained and theoretical discipline and situate its pedagogy and teaching practice within the broader lived experiences of constituencies affected by IEL rules and institutions;
  3. locate IEL curricula within a broader contextual framework of the social, economic and geopolitical realities of the global economy and global constituencies, including drawing links between IEL and other areas of international and national law, such as on climate change, labour, health, socio-economic and human rights;
  4. harness emerging technologies and new innovative teaching methods to foster more pluralistic, diverse and innovative ways of engaging with IEL disciplines.

We are able to offer a limited number of travel-accommodation bursaries for PhD candidates based in the UK.

For more information and if you wish to be considered for these bursaries, please send an expression of interest no longer than 1000 words outlining your research and teaching interests to Dr Anil Yilmaz (ayilma@essex.ac.uk).

This workshop is funded by the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS).
