Dr. Mulryan presents at NAAPE annual conference.
Dr. Seamus Mulryan recently attended the North American Association for Philosophy & Education annual conference (October 27-29, 2023) to participate in a symposium promoting the forthcoming The Cambridge Handbook of Ethics and Education (2024), for which he is a contributor.
The Cambridge Handbook of Ethics and Education is a handbook that provides an interdisciplinary discussion on the role and complexity of ethics in education. Its central aim is to democratise scholarship by highlighting diverse voices, ideas, and places. It is organised into three sections, each examining ethics from a different perspective: ethics and education historically; ethics within institutional practice, and emerging ethical frameworks in education. Important questions are raised and discussed, such as the role of past ethical traditions in contemporary education, how educators should confront ethical dilemma, how schools should be organised to serve all children, and how pluralism, democracy, and technology impact ethics in education. It offers new insights and opportunities for renewal in the complex and often contentious task of ethics and education.
