New England Philosophy of Education Society

The New England Philosophy of Education Society (NEPES) is a regional organization of the Philosophy of Education Society. Members, presenters, and conference participants focus on critical discussions about educational foundations, including, but not limited to, philosophy, history, policy, pedagogy, and contemporary issues. Annual conferences occur during the fall semester. The organization prides itself on being a very cordial and inviting environment for junior and seasoned university faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, pre-service and in-service teachers, philosophers, theorists, historians, administrators, and community members. The annual conferences have a "small" feel, but are quite energetic, creative, and positive. The intimate and conversational climate of the conferences allow for making connections and inspiring each other to address and work with educational issues and to deeply investigate historical and philosophical roots that create contemporary schooling.
