We’re pleased to present the next instalment of the lecture series Education in Shifting Landscapes, in collaboration with Liverpool Hope University’s Center for Education and Policy Analysis (CEPA).

This series invites artists, filmmakers, activists and academics to consider the different ways in which we learn about and understand the world, looking to alternative models of, and perspectives on, knowledge-creation.

Titled Climate Justice: Artistic and Educational Responses, our upcoming panel discussion will delve into climate justice and the role of art and education in creating critical solutions to, and reflections on, the climate crisis. Invited speakers, Hwa Young Jung (Artist), Angela YT Chan (Researcher, Curator and Artist), Dr Robert Booth (Environmental Philosopher) and Steven Shakespeare (Professor of Continental Philosophy of Religion at Liverpool Hope University) will have a particular focus on how we think about making new worlds, or new versions of this world. This panel is moderated by Dr Carly Bagelman (Senior Lecturer of Education at Liverpool Hope University).

Speaker Biographies

Dr Carly Bagelman

Carly grew up on unseeded Coast Salish Territories, in British Columbia BC. She is a Senior Lecturer of Education at Liverpool Hope University, where she is also the Co-Director of the university's Centre for Education and Policy Analysis (CEPA). Her current research considers the ways in which UK schools respond to the challenges and possibilities of forced migration. In particular, she looks at how the Schools of Sanctuary movement endeavours to create welcome for newly arrived (refugee/asylum seeker) students through induction and curriculum, and educate all students about the nature of forced migration and welcome. She also looks at informal educational spaces responding to forced migration such as Liverpool's Initial Accommodation Provision for newly arrived asylum seekers living in hostels. Another key area of Carly's research and teaching is around colonialism and decolonization in education (with a focus on the Canadian context).

Hwa Young Jung

Hwa Young Jung is a multidisciplinary artist working in the arts, cultural and sciences, facilitating collaborative projects and workshops. She works with people to co-create projects, often using games and play to explore social issues. Based in the Northwest, she has been producing work with a range of people (microbiologists, care workers, young people excluded from mainstream education) in England and internationally for almost ten years.

Angela YT Chan

Angela YT Chan is an independent researcher, curator and artist specialising in climate change. Her interdisciplinary work examines power in relation to the inequity throughout the colonial and ongoing history of the climate crisis. Her recent research-art commissions use video, illustrations, conversations, narrative games and data engineering to focus on water scarcity, the military and everyday experiences through climate framings and communications. Since 2014 (formerly as Worm: art + ecology), Angela has produced curatorial projects and workshops, collaborating with artists, activists and youth groups. She co-directs the London Science Fiction Research Community and is a research consultant, having worked in international climate and cultural policy and on sustainability projects for major cultural institutions.

Dr Robert Booth

Dr Robert Booth is an environmental philosopher who has lectured at the University of Liverpool, the University of Manchester, and Liverpool Hope University. His research focuses mainly on how work done at the intersection of phenomenology, ecofeminism, and new materialism might inform practical means of tackling the environmental crisis and other social ills. He is particularly interested in how a critical approach to environmental philosophy - by which we interrogate our most fundamental ways of perceiving and being in the more-than-human world - might licence a more impactful and thoroughgoing environmental activism. In his most recent work, he asks what critical environmental philosophy might have to offer climate change and sustainability education in schools.

Professor Steven Shakespeare

Professor Steven Shakespeare is Professor of Continental Philosophy of Religion at Liverpool Hope University and an Anglican priest. He is interested in exploring how alternative approaches to nature rooted in 19th-century romanticism could help us rethink our relationships to the multiple environments of our world. In particular, he considers how practices of imagination, expression and spirituality might challenge dualistic and reductionist ways of framing nature. In addition, questions of animal subjectivity and the presence of experience or mind throughout nature (panpsychism and animism) play an important part in his research.
