The Faculty of Education at Brock will welcome Sechaba MG Mahlomaholo, a professor of education from South Africa’s University of the Free State, to campus this Thursday to headline the latest instalment of their Distinguished Speaker Series.

His discussion, “Creating Sustainable Research Environments: Or why the bricolage works,” takes place at Alphie’s Bistro on Thursday, Nov.7, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

Mahlomaholo’s presentation will talk about his experiences using a methodology informed by the French anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss’ theories of bricolage to develop his Sustainable Learning Environments Project. His talk will argue for bricolage-based research methodologies that mirror the messiness of lived experience, over one-dimensional empiricist approaches, which do not.

On the following day (Friday, Nov. 8), Brock’s Faculty of Education will host an “Extending the Conversation” session with Mahlomaholo from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in Welch Hall room 171.
