Launch of ANGEL Early Career Researcher Sub-Network.
Connect with fellow researchers, exchange ideas, and explore potential collaborations at this first network event.
This webinar will see Susan L. Robertson (University of Cambridge) discuss her recent paper - a comparative analysis of the anticipatory practices deployed strategically and over time by two international organisations (IOs), UNESCO and the OECD, to govern education futures.
She will show how their coordination of education futures through anticipatory practices is mediated by:
Her argument is developed around three moments of crisis which open up arenas for hyper-projectivity around possible futures (Mische 2014). In each of these moments of hyper-projectivity, she will explore the ways in which UNESCO and the OECD engage in efforts to frame, shape and materialise future presents, and in doing so, claim for themselves the role of guardian of education futures.
This event, along with the other activities of the ANGEL network, is co-funded by the European Union.*
This event is to be hosted via Zoom and will be Chaired by Massimiliano Tarozzi (ANGEL Coordinator / University Bologna). 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 questions and discussion.
