This event is part of the School of Education's Bristol Conversations in Education research seminar series. These seminars are free and open to the public.
Hosted by the Educational Futures Network (EFN)
In this seminar, Keri will share her work-in-progress thinking on the role of time in education (and indeed, in educational research). She will discuss how Temporality Studies invites us to pay attention to how ideas of time shape perceptions of change, possibility, and power. She will explore how different ideas of time structure many contemporary political debates – from how we respond to climate change and the Covid pandemic to how we might respond to historic and contemporary racial injustice. And she will argue that, at present, education does little to support us as citizens and as individuals, to become aware of or reflective about how ideas of time shape how we live in the world. She will outline tentative proposals for a Chronography Curriculum, a way of teaching in and with time in schools – and discuss the work she is currently doing with colleagues in this area. The aim of the seminar is to invite a discussion on time and education, and how research in this area might be further developed – in particular by those interested in teaching in relation to climate change and biodiversity loss.
