Announcement from MacEwan University CAFE (Center for Advancement of Faculty Excellence)
What is Canada’s place within the dynamic ecosystem of the evolving global higher education regime? And what role can students, researchers, teachers, and learners of all kinds play in developing forms of ethical internationalism and the kinds of new learning cultures that might best support these? What is at stake for Canadians in global trends?
This talk will introduce Boaventura de Sousa Santos’s model of an “ecology of knowledges,” set in dialogue with Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak’s theorization of transnational literacy, to discuss their project of working toward what Santos terms “global cognitive justice.” How might these proposals be rearticulated to meet Canadian needs? Given the challenges of working across established borders, how can we Canadians better prepare ourselves for working across boundaries of culture, geography and language?
