What can critical theories tell us about the future of education?

Papers, panels, and workshops addressing any of the following are welcome:

Critical pedagogy, history of education, education and social change, movement pedagogy, philosophy of education, critical theory, Marxist educational research, race and education, gender oppression, or other related themes.
