Science After Critique or Towards Postcritical Methodologies @ Room 956 Kaneff Tower
Mar 19 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Over the past thirty-five years, Professor Patti Lather has opened research in education to the theory wars, feminist pedagogy, and post-structural critiques of science. This research seminar considers some theoretical dilemmas of validity in qualitative research with the questions of what is it to do qualitative research in an unjust world and what happens to the idea of “science” in social science research after critique? Professor Patti Lather will be discussing her recently published volume on Post Critical Methodologies. The seminar is sponsored by Professor Britzman’s York Research Chair in Pedagogy and Psychosocial Transformations and the Faculty of Education.
