A nice little article about the series with thoughts from series curator, jan jagodzinksi, and our first speaker Brad Necyk. Looking forward to kicking things off this Friday, September 25!
“Anthropocene, Ecology, Pedagogy: The Future in Question” is an interdisciplinary forum that sets out to consider the complex questions surrounding the survival of the planet. Coordinated by Secondary Education professor jan jagodzinski, the event encompasses a series of twelve guest lectures over the course of the 2015–16 academic year, beginning with Edmonton artist Brad Necyk on September 25. Speakers in the series include artists, philosophers, filmmakers, and indigenous perspectives from the University of Alberta, and institutions across Canada and around the world.
“I wanted to set up this speaker series— in the European context, it’s called Ringvorlesung, which means that you get really interested people who have a penchant for the particular subject area. You get them together so you get a multi-disciplinary understanding of the subject,” jagodzinski explains.
