“Whose pedagogy is it anyway? Conceptualising and performing public pedagogy” – Wednesday 6th December 2017 – Cass (Stratford)

Wednesday 6th December 2017 5-6pm, 

Location: Ed 2.04, Cass School of Education and Communities (Stratford)

 “Whose pedagogy is it anyway? Conceptualising and performing public pedagogy”

  Andrew Ravenscroft (Chair) and the ICPuP team

 This will be an open meeting and discussion held by the International Centre for Public Pedagogy (ICPuP), where participants will be invited to consider and co-define:

– 
What we understand by Public Pedagogy; 

– Where our work fits into and/or extends the field; 

– ICPUP and our work in the context of UEL’s new research strategy and current emphases.

Our aim is to define our distinctive brand of Public Pedagogy.

This will be an engaging “show and tell” event, where participants will be invited to present for up to 5 mins each, and bring papers, other media or just speak about their work, relating it to how we understand or want to perform public pedagogy. This will contribute to shaping our ICPuP vision, priorities and future activities through a lively debate.

The International Centre for Public Pedagogy (ICPuP) was founded in 2013, and is based in the Cass School of Education and Communities. It is cross-disciplinary with members from Education, Psychology and Performing Arts. Public pedagogy is a relatively new area of educational scholarship that considers the application and development of educational theory and approaches beyond formal schooling. Public pedagogy includes analysis, investigation and action research in contexts such as cultural education, public spaces, non-formal learning, technology and education, popular culture and political struggle. The centre hosts seminars once a month during term time.

Cass School of Education and Communities Seminar Wednesday 15th November 2017 1-2pm : Walking Libraries: A Point of Global Exchange…

Wednesday 15th November 2017 1-2pm

Location: ED.2.04  Cass School of Education and Communities (Stratford)

 

Dr Blake Morris, University of East London

Walking Libraries: A Point of Global Exchange…

In this paper I discuss The Walking Library (2012-Ongoing), a walking art project by Deirdre Heddon and Misha Myers that brings libraries into the landscape. Through the creation of site-specific library collections, Heddon and Myers foster new relationships between reading, writing and walking, and link a variety of global spaces through local walking practices. I identify The Walking Library as part of an emergent mode of practice in the artistic medium of walking that offers ways to reimagine our relationship to the landscape and the multiplicity of global networks that constitute our understanding of it. I argue this work uses the resolutely local act of walking to foster a global sense of place and provide participants with opportunities to reimagine the landscape.

Dr. Blake Morris is a walking artist and researcher based in London. He is a founding member of the Walk Exchange, a cross-disciplinary walking group based in New York City. Along with Clare Qualmann (Walking Artists Network), he co-edits ‘Lines of Desire’ for Living Maps Review, a critical cartography journal. His work has been shown at Ovalhouse Theatre (London), Bogart Salon (New York City) and Superfront Gallery (Los Angeles, Detroit, NYC). He currently works as a visiting lecturer at the University of East London, where he focuses on walking as an artistic medium.
