Theme: An Exploration of Interdisciplinary Research:  Scholarship, Transformative Praxis and Generative Change

The fourth annual Race, Inequality, and Language in Education (RILE) Conference will focus on research at the intersection of issues related to race, inequality and language, and serves as a call to action. It seeks to move from single-issue discussions about inequality while highlighting the importance of positioning our scholarship to effect generative change. The RILE conference provides a forum where the discussion moves from research to a generative transformative praxis.

Whether you are a teacher, researcher, graduate student, community partner, or friend of the Graduate School of Education, we invite you to join us for this unique event. Stanford's GSE is taking a leading role in conducting research on issues of poverty, race, inequality, and language in schools and communities. The RILE program at Stanford is positioned to become a leader in this area by bringing together leading scholars, emerging scholars, and interested stakeholders from across the nation.  We look forward to your participation.
