CIDEC Winter/Spring 2015 Seminar Series REVISED

Seminar Series Schedule Winter/Spring 2015

Please note changes as of Jan 2015

MARCH 4, 2015 SEMINAR POSTPONED


The Comparative, International & Development Education Centre (CIDEC) is pleased to present

'New demands of citizenship education in transnational contexts' 

Guest Speakers   Professor Fazal Rizvi, Melbourne Graduate School of Education & Professor Reva Joshee, LHAE, CIDE, OISE

Afterword   Professor Sarfaroz Niyozov, CTL, CIDE, OISE


In this symposium Fazal Rizvi and Reva Joshee will draw upon their research in Canada, Australia and India to reflect upon the extent to which and how the emerging global forces, ubiquitous mobilities and transnational connections demand new ways of thinking about citizenship education. They will consider how experiences of diversity in transnational settings are giving rise to new social formations, leading to new national imaginaries. They will also discuss how these transformations are resulting in new pedagogic challenges and opportunities. Sarfaroz Niyozov will provide additional critical reflections on the implications of the two presentations for the concept of citizenship education in light of an increasing number of youth in countries around the world who are joining violent extremist activities.

Fazal Rizvi is a Professor in Global Studies in Education at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education and an Emeritus Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has written extensively on issues of identity and culture in transnational contexts, globalization and education policy and higher education reforms. A collection of his selected papers has recently been published under the title, Encountering Education in the Global (Routledge 2014).

Reva Joshee is interested in democratic approaches to policy and education, as well as diversity and social justice policies in education. Her research is framed by understandings of democracy and peace. Under this framework, Reva examines issues of citizenship, diversity, and policy in India, Canada, and the United States and the relationships between theory, policy, and practice in education for diversity and peace.

Sarfaroz Niyozov is an associate professor of Curriculum Studies and Teacher Development at OISE, a former co-director of CIDEC.  He focuses on educational reform in developing countries and Muslim education in Western context.  He recently co-chaired an international conference at OISE on Youth Radicalization which brought together academics, educators, policy makers, community members, youth and practitioners to open dialogue around the questions of youth marginalization and implications for citizenship education.
