Professor Bernstein was an invited speaker, but his illness (throat cancer) worsened and he was unable to attend. This video was recorded in June 2000 and Professor Bernstein passed away 3 months later.The conference was hosted by the Department of Education and the Centre for Education Research (ESSA - essa.ie.ul.pt ), in the School of Science, University of Lisbon. It was convened by Ana Morais (now Emeritus Professor, Institute of Education, University of Lisbon; email: ammorais@ie.ul.pt), and Isabel Neves (now retired Associate Professor, Institute of Education, University of Lisbon).
