The Open University of Cyprus and the Postgraduate Programme "Educational Sciences" have the honor to host Dr Sharon Stein and Dr Petra Mikulan of the Department of Educational Studies of the University of British Columbia (Canada). Both professors are visiting OUC in the context of the Erasmus+ International Mobility Programme.
Two of their lectures will be public, and of interest to students and graduates of educational sciences, researchers, practitioners, primary and secondary teachers, as well as university professors in related fields.
On Tuesday May 10, 2022, Dr Petra Mikulan will address the topic of "Time and Education against oppression". Dr. Petra Mikulan currently teaches educational foundations, curriculum theory and educational ethics in the Department of Educational Studies at the University of British Columbia, where she completed SSHRC and Killam funded postdoctoral fellowship. Her work addresses transdisciplinary intersections between ideas of vitalism and life as they pertain to ethics, feminist race theory, bioinformatics, and post-qualitative reading. In her talk she addresses decolonization of time in education as a viable political ethics that wagers in the name of future possibles not already governed by extractive politics of colonial progress and oppressive regimes of knowing and doing, and contribute to ongoing debates about the implications of our theoretical choices for enriching educational study and pedagogies.
Both lectures will start at 18:00 EEST, and will be broadcasted live through the OUC eLearning platform through this web link: https://bit.ly/37cIHbA
