Artfor? Framing the Conversation with Steven Hill
This video arts-based research essay is part of Artists Speak, and was created by co-directors, Dr. Lynn Fels, community-engaged artist, Dr. Judith Marcuse, and Dr. Celeste Snowber, of the International Centre of Art for Social Change (ICASC).
The video is based on a recorded interview with director, actor, and creator Steven Hill, Associate Professor in Theatre Performance in the School for Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. By interjecting the original interview with visual images, interviewer commentary, and philosophical response interwoven into the visual frame, we disrupt the conventional research interview. This video research essay playfully unpacks the objectivity of the researcher and offers a field of visual play and insight that interrogates Steven Hill’s theorizing on the idea of frames and what predetermines the frames that artists and researchers bring to the project of arts for social change.
This video was created by Patti Fraser, a community-engaged artist and an SFU postgraduate research fellow, and Flick Harrison, an independent filmmaker.
Advancing Internationalisation at Home from Different Roles: An Interview with Dr. Jos Beelen
Dr. Beelen is Professor of Global Learning at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. He leads a research group that explores internationalisation at home, and the skills of lecturers to develop and teach internationalised curricula. In addition to this, another theme of interest is the continuum of internationalisation, from primary to tertiary education. Action research is a key method used in this research. Dr. Beelen has published a range of articles on the implementation of internationalisation at home, both from educational and organisational, systemic, perspectives.
The SFU Ed Review Journal interviewed Dr. Jos Beelen for a Special Issue on Internationalization of Higher Education. The interview was conducted via video by Dr. Laura Baumvol.
Mathematising Social Issues to Imagine a Different World
Can mathematics be used to imagine alternative approaches to problematic social issues? Dr. Sean Chorney proposes that mathematising aspects of our social world can help us to not only identify hidden problems, but also to formulate alternative conceptions of their causes and identify possible solutions. This talk reports on Dr. Chorney’s study of teaching high school mathematics classes on the topic of gerrymandering, as a demonstration of how mathematics can raise both awareness and imagination.
Walking Alongside my Relations: A Transdisciplinary Exploration of Interconnectedness
