The ninth annual Atlantic Education Graduate Student Conference aims to showcase current graduate student research in education. This conference seeks to build research communities and connections among graduate students within the Atlantic region and beyond. This year, we have teamed up with CCPA in order to hold a joint conference emphasizing the entangled spaces of learning and counselling. We invite students from all faculties and all levels of graduate study to present their research relating to some aspect of education in one of the following formats: (1) oral presentation on site or by Skype, (2) virtual electronic or traditional poster/presentation. For format details, please see below. All presenters will have the opportunity to submit their work to a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Antistasis. Select AEGSC conference proceedings may be viewed at:
