St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai and Liverpool Hope University, U.K.
are jointly hosting an International Colloquium on
“Inclusion and Exclusion: Exploring Issues and Practices”

This one day colloquium initiates an international research partnership 
designed to explore common interests in the many aspects of inclusion. We 
understand inclusion to be that movement which seeks to diminish barriers to 
participation in community, culture and curriculum for all, regardless of 
social class, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, language, sexuality 
and so on. Considering the number of marginalized groups in our society, the 
question of inclusion into the mainstream is a relevant issue for 

This programme is for members of the teaching community and others working 
in the field and will be held on Wednesday 27th February 2008, from 9 am to 
5.30 pm. A working lunch will be served.

The morning session is a theoretical exploration of some of the contested 
territories and ideologies of inclusion and the challenges and opportunities 
it represents to our societies. There will be paper presentations followed 
by discussions.
The afternoon session, by contrast, is a practical, hands-on experience, 
focused on a specific area, viz. inclusion for the ‘differently abled’ 
students, in mainstream college education. The format will be an 
experiential learning workshop, designed to sensitize educators, and to help 
them cater to the needs of these students.
At the end of the day, there will be a discussion to consolidate the 
learning and to bring out the links between theory and practice.

To register for this international programme, send in the following details 
(name, college/organisation and personal contact number and email) to 
Genevive at the XDP office, by 20th February 2008. You can call or send an 
Telefax: 22617677 or email: xdp at xaviers.edu

programme on 27/02/2008. Participation certificates can be collected at the 
end of that day itself.
We look forward to an enthusiastic response from the teaching staff of your
