Description

An initiative of CRITIQUE’s Environmental Working Group.

This roundtable event invites insights from scholars and educators who share an interest in ecological strategies of learning, teaching, and writing. The conversation will explore the potential for innovation and disruption contained in ‘environmental’ approaches to higher education in the modern context – within, but also beyond, the university as we currently know it. We hope to encourage a debate on what it could mean to environmentalise the curriculum, in terms of what we teach, how, and why, thus covering content, methods, practices, and attitudes. The discussion will also explore responsible forms of environmental activism in spaces of learning, asking questions about the relationship between pedagogical philosophies and the reality of escalating environmental degradation and climatic upheaval. The roundtable is exploratory and cross-disciplinary, with contributions from scholars with expertise in eco-pedagogy, eco-composition, and experiential environmental education.

Speakers:

  • Dr Helen Kopnina (The Hague University of Applied Sciences / Northumbria University)
  • Dr Gregory Mannion (University of Stirling)
  • Dr Erin Lord Kunz (Mayville State University)
