Invited symposia

The two invited symposia are organized by professor Jim Cummins (Symposium I: Language, identity and school success) and professor Ann Phoenix (Symposium II: Gender, race and school success ). Other participants in the symposia are young researchers and teachers. In each invited symposium, the organizer will give an opening contribution.
