***The 2015 conference theme is Conference Theme: "Education, Power, and Empowerment: Transcending Boundaries"

The conference theme for ACE2015 is "Education, Power, and Empowerment: Transcending Boundaries", and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

In this conference – one of a series of five held in 2015 on education, power and empowerment – participants are invited to explore and question ways in which education can transcend boundaries of space, identity, culture and more, and to consider the ways in which power relations might hinder or enhance learning. Abstracts should address one or more of the streams below, identifying a relevant sub-theme:

Sub-Themes:

-Educating through borders of power
