Actors in our own drama? Engaging with diversity in the Graduate School of Education
Dr Sheila Trahar and GSoE doctoral students
4.10, 35 Berkeley Square, Bristol BS8 1JA
This event is part of the Festival of Education series from 3 - 15 June 2015.
The Graduate School of Education is a rich and diverse environment that brings together people from a wide range of backgrounds, contexts and professional experience. Such environments are replete with multilayered complexities that mirror wider societies. Within this environment, how do we engage with such rich diversity in ways that enable all of us to benefit, to be actors in our own drama? What are the experiences of those who do not see themselves as belonging to a ‘dominant majority’? To what extent do we all grasp the opportunities around us to learn more about each other, in particular those that we may position as ‘different’ from ourselves?
These and many other questions will be addressed creatively through dialogues between a range of people, all of whom are connected, in some way, with GSoE.
Time: 12 - 2pm
Chaired by: Dr Sheila Trahar
