GSCOPE conference at Loyola University Chicago in June 2019

CEPS Students Host 2019 Graduate Student Conference on Philosophy of Education

By Annie Schultz

This past June, doctoral students in the Cultural and Educational Policy Studies (CEPS) program in Loyola University Chicago’s School of Education hosted the Graduate Student Conference on Philosophy of Education (GSCOPE). The conference travels to different institutions around the country and serves as a platform for graduate students to showcase their research and writing on philosophical topics in education.

This year, graduate students from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, the Ohio State University, University of Iowa, Teachers College of Columbia University, Eastern Michigan and Kent State traveled to Loyola to present papers on topics ranging from John Dewey’s answer to cognitive science to Mary Wollstonecraft and contemporary feminist thought in education.

All papers underwent a peer review process by graduate student reviewers across several institutions. Many presenters were first-time academic conference participants and took the opportunity GSCOPE affords to rising scholars to showcase their developing writing and research.

GSCOPE will return to Loyola University Chicago in the summer of 2020. For more information on GSCOPE and opportunities to get involved, please contact Nancy Goldberger (ngoldberger@luc.edu) who can connect you to current CEPS students responsible for planning the conference.
