Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia Conference 2014 

The purpose of PESA is to promote research and teaching in philosophy of education. PESA is a global organization with a broad membership across not only Australia and New Zealand but also Asia, North America and Europe. PESA adopts an inclusive approach to philosophical work in education and welcomes contributions from a variety of different theoretical traditions and perspectives.

The Centre's staff were involved with the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia Conference, held at Kingsgate Hotel from the 22 - 25 November 2014. You can find more information about the conference here, or visit the website

The Centre is also happy to announce that our Director Professor Tina Besley was honoured with the title Fellow of the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia. The title has been awarded for Professor Besley's long record of contributions to both PESA and the field of Educational Philosophy. Given out only 18 times in the history of the society this honour reflects Professor Besley's dedication to educational philosophy and the increasingly important area of global studies.
