DERC Seminar Series
"Global Citizenship in practice" to be the topic of the next DERC Seminar Series.
Madeleine Le Bourdon, a doctoral student at Northumbria University with a background at NGOs, presents the next seminar in our ongoing series - hosted here at the Development Education Research Centre. Madeleine's thesis focuses on the practice and lived experience of global citizenship.
"Global citizenship is an increasingly significant feature of state policies on development and education, forming part of formal education from primary to tertiary levels, volunteering programmes and the policies of international civil society groups. Scholarly discussion has focused on its conceptualisation, its universality and best practices for teaching.
Yet, gaps remain on the ‘doing’ of global citizenship, differences in its interpretation across cultures and what happens when these various ideas collide. Using data collected from fieldwork working with an international non-governmental organisation delivering global citizenship education this session will explore the micro-level lived experiences of individuals as they journey to become ‘active global citizens’."
This free session promises to be an interesting exploration of Madeleine's research, as well as an opportunity to discuss and explore associated themes and questions. You can book via the link given below.
