Presentation to consider politics of research and creative activity

Feminist scholars argue that research practices must break with ableist, racist, extractive, and settler colonial logics, and instead focus on ones that are situated, relational, and ethical. A presentation Thursday at the University of Windsor will take up these important ethical dimensions of doing research.

Stephanie Springgay, a professor in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, will deliver her free public lecture, “Socially-engaged art, experimental pedagogies: The ethics and politics of research-creation with diverse publics,” at 4 p.m. Jan. 16 in the SoCA Armouries Performance Hall, 37 University Ave. E.

In discussing responsibility, stewardship, care, and reciprocity, Dr. Springgay will share examples from her own research-creation practice. This event is sponsored by the Propeller Project, which aims to foster research through art and vice versa.
