Karen Robert delivered a tertulia on radical philosopher and educator Paulo Freire on November 4, 2020.
Robert is an Associate Professor of History at St. Thomas University. A historian of modern Argentina, her work uses material culture to explore social history and cultural myths. Her current research examines labour politics, human rights, and memory through a history of the Ford Falcon, the automobile that came to symbolize state terrorism in contemporary Argentina. Robert’s longstanding interest in innovative pedagogy has also led her to explore the use of mindfulness practices to deepen students’ historical consciousness and cognitive skills.

What is a tertulia? A tertulia is a kind of philosophy café where the lives and ideas of big thinkers, artists and other people who left a mark are shared with a broader community of curious people.
