Education’s Distinguished Speaker Series starts Thursday

The Faculty of Education kicks off its 2013 Distinguished Speaker Series Thursday with Dónal O’Donoghue, chair of art education at the University of British Columbia.

O’Donoghue’s lecture “Is Arts-Based Research Anti-Art?” will examine whether we are demanding too much of art while not paying attention to what art does when doing art research.

The lecture is at Pond Inlet on Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to all. Faculty and students are invited to the Extending the Conversation with O’Donoghue on Friday from 10 a.m. to noon at Pond Inlet.

The second presentation in the series happens Thursday, April 11 and features a conversation between African-Canadian poets, George Elliott Clarke, poet laureate of Toronto, and poet and playwright Pamela Mordecai. More details about the talk will be posted closer to the date.
