Subjects: Education, Philosophy

Date And Time Mon, 19 April 2021, 12PM UK Time ---FREE EVENT--- Register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/book-launch-conversations-on-global-citizenship-education-tickets-145438517521

Book Launch: 'Conversations on Global Citizenship Education' Edited by Emiliano Bosio

 
This discussion event brings together 4 contributors to this wide ranging new book examining perspectives on GCE in higher education.

About this Event

This stimulating online discussion event marks the launch of the new book 'Conversations on Global Citizenship Education: Perspectives on Research, Teaching, and Learning in Higher Education', edited by Development Education Research Centre alumnus Emiliano Bosio.

Emiliano, along with three of the book's contributors (Yusef Waghid, Maria Guajardo, and Hans Schattle) will explore the book’s key themes and findings and address the questions:

  • What is Global Citizenship Education?
  • Why are we in research, teaching and learning if not to be able to help enrich the lives of all students, both in the Global North and Global South?

The event will be chaired by DERC's Director, Doug Bourn.

 

Format

This event is to be hosted via Zoom. Registered participants will be emailed a link in the days before the event, and also 30 minutes before as a reminder. Time after the presentations will be given over to a Q&A with participants.

 

The book

The new 13 chapter volume, published by Routledge, brings together the narratives of a diverse array of educators who share their unique experiences of navigating GCE in the modern university. Conversations focus on why and how educators’ theoretical and empirical perspectives on GCE are essential for achieving an all-embracing GCE curriculum which underpins global peace. Drawing on the Freirean concept of "conscientization", GCE is presented as an educational imperative to combat growing inequality, seeping nationalism, and post-truth politics.

Attendees will be issued with a 20% discount for the book via the chat function during the event. To contact the Book Editor: Emiliano Bosio, [email protected]

 

Intended audience

This event, and the book itself, will be of interest to educators who are seeking to develop their theoretical understanding of GCE into teaching practice, researchers and students who are new to GCE and who seek dynamic starting points for their research, and general audience who are interested in learning more about the history, philosophy, and practice of GCE.

Call for Chapters Brill - Global Citizenship Education in the Global South: Educators' Perceptions and Practices Edited

By: Emiliano Bosio
Subjects: Education, Philosophy

Dear colleagues, Distinguished Professor Yusef Waghid and I will co-edit the book: Global Citizenship Education in the Global South: Educators' Perceptions and Practices. Our edited book aims to include chapters focusing on critical research, theorizing and education policy debates from educators that are defined as part of the Global South (e.g., South Africa, Pakistan, Niger, Yemen, Iraq, Ghana, India, Dubai, China, Malaysia, Brazil, Mexico and others). Basically, this will be a pioneeristic and hopefully successful book that brings contemporary academic debate about ‘southern theory’ to Global Citizenship Education. The volume will be published in Brill | Sense “Moral Development and Citizenship Education” https://brill.com/view/serial/MORA

Many thanks, with appreciation.

Values, Knowledge and Curriculum in Global Citizenship Education

Guest Edited by:
Carlos Alberto Torres, University of California, Los Angeles
Emiliano Bosio, University College London, Institute of Education
William Gaudelli, Lehigh University

Submit full draft of manuscript (up to 7000 words, APA style) for consideration by January 15, 2021 (more information below)

Global citizenship education (GCE) calls for the education of values and knowledge that help learners to become informed and responsible global citizens. Yet there has been relatively little coverage on how educators in different geographic locations perceive GCE and implement it into curricula and classroom practices (Bosio, 2020). By focusing on these areas and following Torres and Bosio’s (2020) proposal that GCE can be “an essential tool to not only build understanding across borders and cultures but to advance our social, political, economic, and environmental interconnectedness necessary to address global and local issues”, this special issue seeks contributions that help us to better understand if and how GCE can be a pedagogical approach which has the potential to go beyond developing students’ basic sense of interconnectedness and broadening their cultural horizons, important as they are, to critically and reflectively locating the discourse in the context of globalization (Bosio & Torres, 2019; Torres, 2017; Gaudelli, 2016). 

We ask: How do educators understand the role of GCE? What pedagogical approaches to GCE do educators employ in their classes? How do educators support the values and knowledge of global citizenship in all curriculum areas? What do educators see as the key essential values and knowledge that students should be helped to develop through GCE? To address these and other related questions, the special issue welcomes both theoretical and empirical perspectives from the Global North and the Global South that investigate the ways in which educators perceive the values and knowledge of GCE and how their pedagogy adapts to it. 

The special issue invites contributors to extend critical consideration of GCE beyond Western-centric and neoliberal conceptions, and attempts to expand the definition of GCE and to think through its future possibilities. Therefore, we particularly welcome submissions that look at the ways in which and the extent to which educators encourage learners to develop critical values and knowledge such as critical consciousness and awareness of injustices, both environmental and social. We also welcome papers that describe other forms of values and knowledge educators feel they are promoting in their students in GCE teaching if not the ones detailed above. Collectively, the special issue attends to the full range of possible GCE pedagogical responses to current societal challenges (e.g., Covid-19), and therefore it engages with the implications of different envisaged futures – including progressive and critical ones.

January 15, 2021: Full draft of manuscript (up to 7000 words, APA style), including articles for the Viewpoints/Controversies, Open File, and Cases/Trends sections, should be submitted before January 15, 2021 using the Editorial Manager system: https://www.editorialmanager.com/pros/default.aspx
