Global Dialogues on Critical Knowledges, Liberation and Community
Join us in Global Dialogues on Critical Knowledges, Liberation and Community
6th International Convention Centre, Durban, South Africa
27-30 May 2016
The College of Graduate Studies and its Institute for Social and Health Sciences (ISHS), University of South Africa, the Medical Research Council Violence - University of South Africa Violence, Injury and Peace Research Unit (MRC-UNISA VIPRU), and the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) are pleased to host the 2016 International Conference on Community Psychology (ICCP), the sixth meeting in this successful series.
The conference seeks to accord representation, voice and space to theories and enactments of community psychology that contribute to robust debate and conversations about the identity and representational forms of community psychology, the critical roles of community psychologists, and the epistemological and ontological diversity present in global enactments of community psychology.
You are cordially invited to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations, symposia, roundtable discussions and innovative presentations.
Guidelines for the submission of abstracts are available on the conference website.
Abstract submission closes on 8 January 2016.
ICCP2016 invites abstract submissions that relate to the four thematic tracks noted here.
Knowledge Production and Contestation in Community Psychology
This track focuses on community psychology as knowledge, and the contestation for representation and authority. The track calls for presentations that examine the politics of how particular concepts and theories have gained ascendency in community psychology, as well as for presentations that offer critiques of methodologies used in research, intervention and analysis. The track will offer a space for self-reflection and self-critique on community psychology as a knowledge-making enterprise.
Decoloniality, Power and Epistemic Justice
Here the aim is to stimulate conversations about the theories and practices of decoloniality, and the propositions that decoloniality may offer for re-shaping the identities and representational forms of community psychology. The location of the conference on the African continent provides a platform for dialogue with epistemologies from the Global South, and their interpretations of community, liberation and humanism.
Community Psychology in Context
In this track the focus is on enactments of community psychology across diverse contexts and subject areas. Presentations will bring attention to applications of community psychology as they relate to such issues as violence, socio-economic inequality, racism, gender, migration, dispossession, climate change, and disease outbreaks. The track aims to promote debates and conversations about the diversity in global enactments of community psychology.
Teaching and Learning in Community Psychology
The call here is for presentations that scrutinise the shaping influences of pedagogical traditions and interpretive frameworks on teaching and learning in community psychology. The track invites presentations that reflect innovations and tensions in curriculum design and instruction within globalised and localised developments in tertiary education. It also focuses on the intersections between students as knowledge producers and citizens, and the demands of professionalisation and career pathing.
