Dear Colleagues

I am writing to all of you who presented papers or ran workshops at DPR12 last month. As I said at the start of the conference, we were well aware this year of the difficulties facing delegates who wanted to make it to the conference and we were impressed by the determination, perseverance and sacrifice people had made to find ways of joining us. Thank you for contributing to what many people have been saying was one of the best DPR conferences so far. The numbers were lower than before; but the quality and intensity of the debate was brilliant. We hope you felt the efforts you made to join the conference were worth while.

DiscourseS OF INCLUSION AND EXCLUSION

9 – 11 April, 2013 – University of Greenwich, UK

 

Advancing, deepening and sharing understanding between minds – that is, research, learning and teaching – is a site of ongoing contestation both in theory and practice. Is learning  a process of assimilation: coming together to share new insights and the practices they entail, do we leave behind what then appear the errors of our ways and the cultures that supported them, so that learning and unlearning go hand in hand? This is to see the learning community as nomadic, moving on, progressing. But what is lost along the way? Is learning then more a celebration of our selves and our cultures, as we are, as we can and will be, flowering in the richness of our various traditions? This is the understanding of a settled community, preserving its heritage, sectarian, ultimately stifled. Read the rest of this entry »

Below are some of the foods that have been known to cause migraine headaches. Changing your diet to have less of these foods will help lessen the chances of a migraine headache coming on. Read the rest of this entry »
