On Monday 11 March the Institute of Education at the University of London is fortunate to be visited by the distinguished American scholar James A. Banks. He will be launching the international SAGE Encyclopedia of Diversity in Education which he has edited, accompanied and supported by some of the UK contributors to it, and will give a lecture entitled Diversity and Citizenship Education in Global Times. The launch starts at 3 pm and the lecture at 5.30. Tea will be served after the launch, and drinks and canapés after the lecture. Attendance is free of charge, but prior registration is necessary. Further information can be obtained from the office of Professor Hugh Starkey (firstname.lastname@example.org) in relation to the launch and from Rachel Shaw (email@example.com) in relation to the lecture.
