About this event

Critical Conversations in Education

The past 18 months of the global pandemic have often been described as ‘unprecedented’ in terms of the scale and scope of rupture to our customary ways of living together. But the pandemic is only one among several acute societal challenges facing Aotearoa, the Pacific and the global community today. The Critical Conversations in Education series, hosted by Critical Studies in Education, seeks to explore what it would mean to renew the critical project in education and social work and beyond in response to such challenges.

Each of the four critical conversations will consist of short five-minute ‘provocations’ by scholars from Education and Social Work and the wider university community in response to a particular societal challenge. It will then be opened up to participants to respond to the provocations with facilitated questions and discussion.

Event 4: Does the #MeToo movement present a watershed moment for gender equality in universities?

The #MeToo movement began as a rallying call against ongoing sexual violence and exploitation, especially in the workplace. Some have critiqued the movement, though, for making the personal political and failing to address the historical and structural factors which perpetuate power dynamics relating to race, gender, class and sexuality. What critical insights can we derive from this movement and its offspring such as Stop Sexual Harassment on Campus (SSHOC) Aotearoa for rethinking workplace culture in universities?
