Dividing the Atlantic, Dividing Education; or PISA for Development: Can One Size Ever Fit All?

The University of Vigo hosted the I International Conference Atlantic Communities: Translation, Mobility, Hospitality (17-18 September, 2015). The event was a joint initiative of Teresa Caneda Cabrera (UVigo), Rui Carvalho Homem (U Porto) and David Johnston (Queen’s U Belfast) and was organized by members of the UVigo NETEC research group, Martín Urdiales Shaw, Jorge Figueroa Dorrego, Araceli González Crespán and José Carregal Romero. Seeking to address the growing interest in the Atlantic as a transnational and cross-cultural space of transit, the conference brought together scholars from the social sciences and the humanities who embarked on fruitful dialogues about confluences and encounters between communities and individuals on both sides of the Atlantic.
