Classroom Action: Book Launch in Guelph, ON
November 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Please join us for a book launch for Classroom Action: Human Rights, Critical Activism, and Community-Based Education (University of Toronto Press).
This book argues that for education to be a purposeful site for critical activism, one of our key challenges, as university-level teachers and learners, will be to create structures in our classrooms (as well as within the larger institutions in which we work) that encourage broader forms of community-based involvement. What might it mean, then, for teachers and learners to reach outside the walls of the classroom, as it has traditionally been defined?
Dr. Ajay Heble (Director, International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation and Professor, School of English and Theatre Studies, University of Guelph) is the editor of this volume, which features chapters contributed by Heble’s former students. Chapters reflect on the community-engaged interventions that have emerged from Heble’s classes, and discuss how such initiatives have shaped and energized the current research and teaching practices of the authors. Several of the contributing authors will be on hand at the book launch to talk about their chapters.
Please join us at the Bookshelf Ebar in Guelph, on Sunday November 26th at 3 pm.
