Dear colleague,

We are emailing to invite you to participate in the 2nd Socio-Cultural
Theory in Educational Research & Practice: Theory, Identity and
Learning. The conference aims to stimulate debate and to inform
understanding of new ways of theorizing the active subject within
socio-cultural theory within the context of empirical studies of
learning in school and other learning contexts. Apart from the keynote
addresses, we do not intend that participants' papers will be presented
orally; however, participation in academic debate is very much the ethos
of the conference. We see the purpose of the abstracts/papers as being
to fuel the discussion, and also to give participants the opportunity to
share their ideas with others in a spirit of collegiate collaboration. 

The deadline for abstract submission is 15 May and notifications will be
sent by 1 June. Early registration fees due before 1 June and a limited
number of student bursaries are available. 

Scheduled keynote speakers with expertise in sociocultural theory,
mathematics education, and science education include: 

Landsdowne Professor Wolff-Michael Roth, Applied Cognitive Science,
University of Victoria, British Columbia

Professor Anna Sfard, Department of Education, University of Haifa,
Israel; Institute of Education, University of London; Division of
Science and Mathematics Education, Michigan State University, US

Dr Etienne Wenger, Independent Researcher and Consultant on Communities
of Practice 

Professor Julian Williams, Learning, Teaching and Assessment, University
of Manchester


Venue:            University of Manchester 

Date:               10-11 September 2007 

(starting 10.30am 10th Sept., ending 4:30pm 11th Sept.) 

The conference is organised by the Socio-cultural Theory Interest Group
(ScTIG), School of Education with support from the British Academy in
