ANNUAL CEA CONFERENCE 2019 DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION MAY 10
Boundary Crossings in Culture, Power, and Experience: Re-imagining Higher Education The purpose of the conference is to explore contemporary issues around boundary crossing, as they relate to universities and learning, broadly conceived. This conference is dedicated to the memory of our colleague Professor L.H.M. “Lily” Ling, a founding member of the Critical Edge Alliance, who tragically passed away last year. The conference is designed in the spirit of Ling’s Silk Road Research Initiative, a research collective that pursued the re-imagination of world politics. As part of that work, students and faculty from The New School (New York, NY) organized in 2013 around a shared vision: to transform the foundation that underpins today’s international system by thinking creatively about world politics.
The registration for the conference is now open. Registration for the conference is now open on Eventbrite via this link. Confirm your attendance and participation in the conference via the registration link above no later than Friday, May 10, 2019. The conference fee is $90 USD for faculty and administrators and $60 USD for students. Everyone is asked to pay this fee to help offset some of the costs of the conference for the host university. The fee is kept as low as possible and includes coffee, meals, and receptions during the conference. All travel and accommodation costs are at participants’ own expense.
RUC - CEA INTERDISCIPLINARY SUMMER COURSE - 19-30 AUGUST ON THE UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS IN RESEARCH AND PRACTICE

NEWS ON THE STUDENT COMMUNITY The Climate Change Focus is the first digital booklet of Critical Edges' trimonthly Focus. Critical Edges is an international magazine created by critical students from around the world. We are also building a global student community that aims to allow critical thinkers and doers across the globe to share ideas, initiate discussions, and inspire one another through sharing meaningful content.
We hope to present well-grounded analysis of the complex causes, symptoms, and effects of this phenomena and of the future facing us; we hope that students everywhere can engage in meaningful and multi-perspective discussions, as well as gain deeper understanding of the relationship between climate change and the societies which creates it; and we hope that we can share knowledge to inspire and encourage more people to find ways to stop climate change and work towards more sustainable societal structures.
