International webinar conference MaCE

Key Note Speaker Michelle Fine is a Distinguished Professor at City University of New York. Fines research interests goes hand in hand with the research philosophy in MaCE. She has vast experience in participatory action research and studies of social injustice and resistance, particularly in the context of urban education. Through the years Fine has contributed to generate and spread knowledge and awareness of young people’s experiences in school, and her observation of how the school system is silencing and framing students that don’t fit into the social and cultural categories preferred by schools.
