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 2: What would it mean to indigenize the university?

Across the globe, there are increasingly insistent calls to decolonize higher education curricula, pedagogy and institutions. There are, however, different interpretations of what this might mean and look like and by whom such a project should be led. In Aotearoa, the calls have been taken up by higher education institutions and scholars in ways that reveal the complexity, but also the possibilities, of such a project.
