The Inaugural Lecture of the Macy Professor of Education

Border Crossings: Threads, Spaces, Networks and New Ideas

4:00 PM LECTURE | Grace Dodge Hall 179

5:00 PM RECEPTION| Macy Art Gallery



From STEM to STEAM has become a popular topic of pedagogical theorizing and practice in which the arts engage as threads interweaving the humanities and sciences expanding traditional norms of cognition. This is not a new idea but in today’s world prompts radical re-thinking about the future of schools and the emergence of coalitions that have the power to re-shape culture and re-contextualize education This presentation will argue for a reinscription of the arts in terms of “collaborative envisioning” in which social groups and cultural institutions form networks that highlight reflection, imagination and aesthetic sensibility reformulating ideas about teaching and learning and the sites where they take place.
