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.
