GERA Congresses

Crises and Transformations | 29th GERA Congress 2024

In relation to the realities of life in the 21st century, crises and transformations are being discussed publicly as well as scientifically around the world. Crises stand for the loss of self-evident facts and are accompanied by demands, desires and needs for transformations. For educational science, crises, perceptions of crises and discourses as well as the associated transformations become the subject of empirical research and theoretical reflection. In the context of the 29th GERA Congress 2024 at the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, we want to reflect, question and discuss topics of crisis and transformations as well as their significance for educational science perspectives. We are very pleased that we could win Prof. Dr. Fabian Kessl (University of Wuppertal) as keynote speaker at the opening event of the congress.

The GERA Congress 2024 will take place in Halle from March 10th – March 13th 2024.
