The discussion asks: “What if the orthodoxies of science as having practical knowledge have little historical evidence to sustain its promise?” “What if the ‘scientific evidence’ of the practical research is not merely about facts, evidence or ‘science,’ but about the ordering of conduct to change social life and people that produces differences and divisions?”Thu, 26 Sep 2019 15:27:48 Z<p>Thomas Popkewitz, a professor with the School of Education&rsquo;s Department of Curriculum and Instruction, will be delivering a brown bag discussion from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, in room 8411 of the Social Sciences building.</p> <p>The presentation it titled, &ldquo;The Impracticality of Practical Research: A History of Contemporary Sciences of Change that Conserve.&rdquo;</p> <p><img src="http://dance.wisc.edu/images/WebDispenser/news-and-events/thomas-popkewitz4ab2bf37c0a569e0ad6dff0000cdac6d.png?sfvrsn=0" displaymode="Original" alt="thomas-popkewitz" title="thomas-popkewitz" class="FloatImageRight" />There is an alluring, daunting, and haunting desire in contemporary Western European and American social sciences. That desire is for research to find the practical knowledge that enables change to bring about a good life in a just and equitable society. This desire haunts the 19th century emergence of the social sciences and becomes more pronounced in the post-war mobilizations of research in the expansion of the welfare states. This vision of practical knowledge is captured today in the international assessments of national school systems and professional education that identifies the pathways for governments to modernize school systems and provide for the well-being of its people. This faith embodies particular links between American policy and research in which reforms are verified by &ldquo;scientific, empirical evidences&rdquo; about &ldquo;what works.&rdquo;</p> <p>Popkewitz&rsquo;s brown bag focuses historically on present principles that order the &ldquo;practical&rdquo; sciences as more profound, complex and paradoxical than initially suggested in the formulation of the research. The discussion asks: &ldquo;What if the orthodoxies of science as having practical knowledge have little historical evidence to sustain its promise?&rdquo; &ldquo;What if the &lsquo;scientific evidence&rsquo; of the practical research is not merely about facts, evidence or &lsquo;science,&rsquo; but about the ordering of conduct to change social life and people that produces differences and divisions?&rdquo; </p> <p>And if there is time, Popkewitz will talk about an alternative notion of science and social change.</p>urn:uuid:d59fc237-c0a5-69e0-ad6d-ff0000cdac6dhttp://dance.wisc.edu/dance/news/events/2020/04/10/default-calendar/supporting-higher-education-and-career-success-for-refugees-in-wisconsin Supporting Higher Education and Career Success for Refugees in WisconsinThis day-long event, hosted by CCWT and WISCAPE, will bring together diverse stakeholders to learn about the barriers and supports that impact the college and career success of refugees in Wisconsin.

As the state&rsquo;s regional demographics continue to shift, many higher education institutions have committed to the goal of attracting, supporting, retaining, and graduating increasingly diverse student bodies.<br /> <br /> Given the rapid growth in the Hispanic community in particular, a number of these institutions have begun actively pursuing the status of &ldquo;Hispanic-Serving Institution&rdquo; (HSI), which requires that at least 25 percent of the student body be Hispanic. But more important than enrollment data or a federal designation, it is imperative for all of Wisconsin&rsquo;s colleges and universities to connect underrepresented students to opportunities and support them along their educational journeys.<br /> <br /> This one-day summit, hosted by the<a target="_blank" href="http://wiscape.wisc.edu/"> Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE)</a> and the six member institutions of the HSI Network of Wisconsin, will provide a forum for students, community members, and higher education professionals to interface and collaboratively explore how we can create the conditions necessary for underrepresented students to thrive on our campuses.<br /> <br /> Dr. Gina A.

The Chinese harbor city thus became a safe haven for a Jewish diaspora in East Asia. The refugees&rsquo; hope to use Shanghai as a temporary waiting room for their transfer to North America or elsewhere was soon wrecked by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the breakout of the Pacific War. As a result, they ended up spending a decade in China. <br /> <br /> During his talk, Dr. Li will illustrate how the European Jewish refugees sustained their educational aspirations and efforts by creating various educational institutions in the war-torn Chinese city, including establishing a continuing education center grounded in the German concept of &ldquo;Volkshochschule&rdquo; (people&rsquo;s university). Furthermore, ​Li will discuss how Jewish refugees&rsquo; educational tradition intersected with China&rsquo;s political and societal frameworks. Drawing upon Shanghai&rsquo;s Jewish adult education as a unique case, ​the talk will address how transnational refugee education could overcome deficit models and cultural homogenization.<br /> <br /> This event is ​cosponsored by the <a href="https://eastasia.wisc.edu/" title="Visit CEAS website" target="_blank">Center for East Asian Studies</a>, the <a target="_blank" title="Visit CGES website" href="https://daadcenter.wisc.edu/">Center for German and European Studies (CGES)</a>, the <a target="_blank" title="Visit GNS website" href="https://gns.wisc.edu/">Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic Cultures</a>, and the <a target="_blank" title="Visit Mosse/Weinstein Center website" href="https://jewishstudies.wisc.edu/">Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies</a>. <br /> <br /> A light lunch will be provided by ​CGES! ​<strong><a href="https://forms.gle/HAhqifhkQ2VbmseX9" title="Please RSVP to attend" target="_blank"><strong>Pl</strong></a><strong><a target="_blank" title="Visit RSVP form" href="https://forms.gle/HAhqifhkQ2VbmseX9"><strong>ease RSVP</strong></a></strong></strong> if you plan to attend. </p>urn:uuid:e98fc237-c0a5-69e0-ad6d-ff0000cdac6dhttp://dance.wisc.edu/dance/news/events/2019/09/25/default-calendar/administering-austerity-in-the-new-university Administering Austerity in the New UniversityJoin us for a Department of Sociology colloquium with Laura Hamilton, professor and chair of sociology at the University of California, Merced.

These schools face intense financial pressures, as they are more deeply reliant on state support and less able to extract market-based funds (e.g., from donors, alumni, non-resident families, and corporations) than their peers. <br /> <br /> Hamilton argues that the choices of new university administrators are not just a logical response to material conditions, but instead reflect a pervasive culture of austerity. She focuses on four key austerity practices​ -- get big, cut costs, be market smart, and think (inter)nationally. These practices tend to undercut the experiences of historically marginalized students and may even be counterproductive to organizational survival and prestige production. Consequently, leaders may inadvertently reinforce the state austerity to which they must respond.</p> This event is ​sponsored by the <a href="https://sociology.wisc.edu/" title="Visit Sociology website" target="_blank">Department of Sociology</a> at UW-Madison and cosponsored by the <a href="http://wiscape.wisc.edu" title="Visit WISCAPE website" target="_blank">Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE)</a> and the <a href="https://www.wcer.wisc.edu/" title="Visit WCER website" target="_blank">Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER)</a>.
