A research event with Professor Kathleen Gallagher (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto) and Dr Rachel Turner-King (Education Studies, University of Warwick)
Chaired by Professor Jonothan Neelands (WBS)
Wednesday 11th March 2-3.30pm H0.60 (Humanities Building) Followed by light reception
Following the recent publication of Global Youth Citizenry and Radical Hope: Enacting Community-Engaged Research through Performative Methodologies (Gallagher, Rodricks & Jacobson, 2020), we are delighted to invite staff and students from across the University to this research event.
We will share details of Gallagher’s international, multi-sited and collaborative research project (SSHRC 2014-18) Youth, Theatre, Radical Hope and the Ethical Imaginary: an intercultural investigation of drama pedagogy, performance and civic engagement. This project took place in five sites: Toronto (Canada), Lucknow (India), Athens (Greece), Taipei (Taiwan) and Coventry (UK).
Rachel Turner-King was the lead researcher for the Coventry site (The Belgrade). Kathleen and Rachel will give presentations on their work. There will be a screening of the ‘Towards Youth’ documentary video and time for a Q & A.
This interdisciplinary event will be of interest to those working in ethnography, social justice, youth studies, citizenship education and applied theatre.
