Crossroads Community and Environmental Art Workshop & the Centre for Feminist Research present:
The Creative Arts as Pedagogy: A transnational feminist dialogue
Wednesday, Nov 5, 2014 at Yorku 3:00 – 5:00 pm 140 HNES (Health, Nursing & Environmental Studies, Rm. 140)
This panel will bring together Malathi de Alwis (University of Colombo/Open University Colombo), Shahrzad Mojab (OISE/U of T), Honor Ford-Smith (York), Rachel Gorman (York) and Nayani Thiyagarajah (York), to engage in a conversation facilitated by Alison Crosby (York) on how they draw on the creative arts to think through their research, politics and the everyday. Panelists will engage with a variety of questions, including “How can the arts create transnational feminist conversations that teach the irreconcilable, the unsettling, the intersecting and parallel lived experiences across and within nations, states, histories and politics?”
These events are co-sponsored by the Centre for Refugee Studies, the York Centre for Asian Research, the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies (LA&PS), and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation (VPRI).
