Student Speaker Series – April 13, 2017

The Student Speaker Series provides students an opportunity to practice their presentation skills and share their ideas with their peers. Students may practice presenting for an upcoming conference, defense, or share other ideas (e.g., methodology, epistemology, theoretical framework) with their peers.

Students are invited to be part of the audience to learn from their peers and provide constructive feedback to the presenters. Sessions will be advertised via the EGSA-AÉDÉ newsletter, Facebook page and Twitter. We look forward to seeing you all there!

Un avant-goût des rôles identitaires, défis et succès dans la mise en oeuvre des appels à l’action de la CVR par les enseignants. (Julie Vaudrin-Charette, PhD Candidate)

Une analyse de pratiques en cours  dans le programme de formation collégiale au  Québec,  où  les  questions  liées  aux  relations  allochtones-autochtones  restent  abordées  de  façon embryonnaire, et souvent selon le bon vouloir des enseignants, nous semble essentielle. Spécifiquement,  comment  les  éducateurs  se  représentent-ils  ces  collaborations  pédagogiques,  et comment  leurs  actions  s’avèrent-elles évocatrices  du  curriculum  imaginé  de  la  Commission  de vérité  et réconciliation,  de  celui,  prévu  ou  non,  des  instances ministérielles,  et  de leur  expérience  individuelle  et collective de la réconciliation?  

Encountering and exploring the polysemy effect of the tag ‘refugee’. (Hembadoon I. Oguanobi, MA Candidate)

Dillion (1998) writes, “The refugee is a scandal” (p. 30), and I want to know, in what ways. In my presentation, I will be exploring the notion of what it means to be a refugee in the 21st century and how nations exclude this heterogeneous group of persons from the protection of the state. Warner (1999) writes “without citizenship, one is stateless, and hence unprotected. Only Citizens can be protected, mere persons cannot” (p. 257). I draw from Arendt (1978) and Kristeva (1991) in finding ways to protect refugees in our midst, and not treat them as enemies to be excluded as other/them.
