Invitation to

The International Conference on Education, Imperialism, and Resistance

August 10-11, 2009 Taipei, Taiwan

Organizers:

The International League of Peoples’ Struggle Working Group on Teachers, Researchers, and other Education Personnel; International Center for Taiwan Social Studies (世新大學台灣社會研究國際中心) Taiwan: A Radical Quarterly in Social Studies. (台灣社會研究季刊)

Venue:

S1204, She-Wo Building, Shih Hsin University, No. 1, Lane 17, Sec. 1, Mu-Cha Rd., Taiepi 台北市木柵路一段17巷1號,世新大學舍我樓1204會議室

Background and Objectives:

Imperialism is at the root of untold suffering for billions of people throughout the world. Imperialist banks and corporations reap huge profits from the exploitation of working people even as the world economy is racked by crises, the gap between rich and poor countries widens, hundreds of millions are thrown into unemployment, billions are kept in poverty, and environmental destruction proceeds unabated. The imperialist countries, led by the United States, wage wars of aggression to control valuable markets and resources and suppress revolutionary movements. All over the world, imperialism intensifies the oppression of women, exacerbates racial and ethnic conflicts, and incites discrimination against migrants.

In the guise of neoliberal globalization, imperialism is having a devastating impact on education. Drastic cuts in public spending for education have become the norm. Teachers, researchers, and other education personnel suffer deteriorating standards of living as salaries fail to keep up with rising costs. Large numbers are being laid off as governments close down schools and universities deemed inefficient. As education becomes the flashpoint for popular struggles, schools and universities are increasingly subjected to state repression.

Imperialism exercises an ever-tightening grip on education. The WTO's General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) has placed liberalization of the so-called education market and the privatization of education on the agenda of future negotiations, along with other basic social services. Teaching and research are to an unprecedented extent driven and defined by corporate interests.

Imperialist control of education is a key element in imperialist domination of culture as a whole. U.S. imperialism, in particular, makes full use of the means at its disposal—chiefly its huge monopolies in mass media—to shape world public opinion according to its interests. Monopolies have increasing influence over curricula, education programs, institutional organization, and research agendas.

Struggle over knowledge and research is a key aspect of struggles against imperialism. On the one hand, imperialist domination of education and research is used to undermine people’s struggles. On the other, a critique of imperialist ideology can be an important tool in the struggle for radical structural change. Throughout the world today, education workers respond to imperialist globalization through solidarity and struggle to defend their rights and welfare, the people’s right to education, and advance the struggle for a more just and humane future for all.

The conference aims to bring together academics and social activists to put forward a progressive critique of imperialism and education. Participants to the conference will present critiques of aspects of imperialism and education including access to education, education sector reforms on neoliberal lines, right to education and livelihood, the political economy of education, the politics and theories of knowledge production and research, the impact of privatization and liberalization on educators and students and the impacts of education sector reforms on societies.

這個表格
完全是帝國主義式的。
真好奇要怎麼對抗帝國主義哩。

整個文宣和議程都是英文

就是一個完完整整的語帝國主義

樓上說的對

我也好奇是要怎樣對抗帝國主義
還是只有英文程度好的人才能抵抗勒?

難道要用菲律賓的Takaro語言,才不是「帝國主義」?

不過我倒是蠻好奇,台社中心辦這個活動,有沒有想過跟本地互動的問題?ILPS的朋友到台灣來,應該是一個不錯的交流機會…

難怪中國人會認為你們這些民主國家的左派無知又無能

ALLCOME:別傻了,台灣那裏來的左派?

ALLCOME:沒到過台灣別說「台灣有左派」的傻話!

ALLCOME:台灣只有錢派!

民主國家的左派無知

--------------------------

ALLCOME:樓上的請深思一個問題……

ALLCOME:以這個網站為例……

ALLCOME:如果這網站真有所謂的左派,

ALLOCME:有那個國家的左派 (就拿中國比),看到有人「推動賣淫合法化」的言論出現在討論版上時……

ALLCOME:所謂的左派…看到時反而會閉嘴, 啥都不講的!

ALLOCME:台灣有左派?
ALLOCME:台灣有左派?
ALLOCME:台灣有左派?
