Whose Knowledge Counts?
Guest Speaker: Budd Hall
UNESCO Chair in Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education & Professor of Community Development at the University of Victoria
March 7th, 2:30-4:00pm (Newfoundland Time) Webinar
Community based research, engaged scholarship, social movement learning and more are all means to deepen and bring to life a more democratic engagement with knowledge. Democracy is about more than engagement, more than citizenship, more than rallies and more than plugging us all into the global economic assembly line. In an era which some people have described as one of the ‘feral rich’, an era when the ultra rich seem to have escaped and slipped the bounds of earth and become disconnected with the rest of us, we are examining or have a cause to examine all the tools of meaning making at our disposal. Whose knowledge counts? How is knowledge created? What is the link between knowledge and justice and equality and what does this have to do with CU Expo, the colour of flowers in the spring and the meaning of a poet’s words?
Please bring your stories, your hopes and your passion to a conversation about knowledge and the world we want.
