General Conference Information
The annual PESA conference provides the major venue in Australasia for the presentation of research papers and discussions about philosophy of education. In recent years, the conference has been held in exotic locations, including Hong Kong (2005) and Hawaii (2009).
The tradition of the Society is to provide a supportive environment for the presentation of papers and the encouragement of a more profound understanding of practical and theoretical issues in education. Those new to the philosophy of education are always welcome.
