To imagine global change - beyond thought and through emotion

Prof. Vanessa de Oliveira Andreotti will present a pedagogical experiment that invites conversations about our collective existence in a planet facing unprecedented crises. How can we inspire to act and ask differently in a world that requires new and creative approaches?

Tea and coffee will be served

Vanessa de Oliveira Andreotti holds a Canada Research Chair in Race, Inequalities and Global Change, at the Department of Educational Studies, University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.  She has extensive experience working across sectors internationally in areas of education related to global justice, sustainability, community engagement, Indigenous knowledge systems and internationalization.

Her research focuses on analyses of historical and systemic patterns of reproduction of knowledge and inequalities and how these mobilize global imaginaries that limit or enable different possibilities for (co)existence and global change. She is currently directing research projects and teaching initiatives related to social innovation oriented towards decolonial futures (decolonialfutures.net and blogs.ubc.ca/earthcare).
