APPLE and the Lives of Animals Research Group are delighted to be hosting a lecture by Dr. Helena Pedersen (University of Gothenburg, Sweden) an internationally renowned scholar of critical animal pedagogy, entitled “Posthumanist Education: Rethinking Human-Animal Relations in Teaching and Learning”.
Educational institutions have traditionally privileged human perspectives and interests, while using animals as scientific objects or ‘resources’ for our teaching and learning, rather than as subjects in their own right. This lecture explores how human-animal
relations take shape in a range of educational settings and discusses possibilities and
visions for transforming education in a critical posthumanist direction.
This Lecture will be held at the Queen’s University Club (158 Stuart Street, Kingston), on Tuesday October 17th from 3:00 to 5:30pm.
Refreshments will be served.
