seminar by Julia White


On October 31, 2016 International Institute for the Study of Culture and Education hosted prof. Julia White, Assistant Professor in the Department of Teaching and Leadership in the School of Education, Syracuse University. Professor White conducted a day-long seminar for EDiTE Doctoral Students at ULS.

Prof. Julia White's research agenda includes special educational policy at the national and international levels and inclusive education as a human right, particularly related to students with complex support needs and Romani students in Central and Eastern Europe. She is the recipient of two Fulbright fellowships to the Slovak Republic, the American Educational Research Association Disability Studies in Education Special Interest Group Junior Scholar Award, and was Principal Investigator of a USDOE funded personnel preparation program  that focused on low-incidence disabilities. She has published a monograph on the education of Romani children in Central and Southeastern Europe, numerous book chapters, and articles in journals such as Disability Studies Quarterly, Inclusion, the Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, and the English Journal. Her work has been cited in cases around the misdiagnosis of Romani students before regional courts in the Slovak Republic and Hungary and before the European Court of Human Rights (Horváth and Kiss v. Hungary).

The visit is part of a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement number 676452.
