As part of the Excellence in Education Lecture Series, we are pleased to invite you to a presentation

by Timothy J. Stanley (Professor, Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa).


Building Connections: Racisms and the

Problems of our Time

"I am proposing a Pedagogy of Connection as a new approach to antiracism education that is designed to meet the challenges posed by the problems of our time. For example, in the fact of large migrations of people fleeing political oppression, social chaos and the consequences of global warming, racisms are becoming more and more popular, and manifest in the most extreme forms. At the same time, the widespread, previously existing political consensus that racism is always wrong has been breaking down. Thus, despite more than half a century of educational efforts intended to combat racism, racist and fascist movements are growing more popular. Now, more than ever, the key antiracist challenge remains one of finding ways to end the exclusions that racisms enact.  Through shared explorations of the material, symbolic and embodied connections that tie all human beings together in complex ways, a Pedagogy of Connection can begin to bridge these exclusions, while helping to ensure that racisms do not have the space to develop in the first place."


Monday, December 9, 2019 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

A reception following the presentation will provide an opportunity to express best wishes for Dr. Stanley's retirement.
