Funds of Knowledge for the 21st century: Towards pedagogical justice in diverse societies

Liverpool Hope University

12 March 2021






This event aims to bring together scholars and practitioners to exchange perspectives on working with young people’s local ‘funds knowledge’ and imagine pedagogies that harness diversity and create richer opportunities. The symposium invites newer and more established scholars, students and practitioners to develop a set of proposals on the future of the FoK approach. The event aims to launch an international network of researchers and practitioners, inspiring future collaborations.


Free registration is now open via the event website:
