Tertulia – Karen Robert on Paulo Freire

Our next tertulia features Karen Robert on Paulo Freire on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 7:00pm (ADT) on Zoom. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
Karen 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. Dr. 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.
Paulo Freire was a Brazilian educator, philosopher and author of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, a foundational text of the critical pedagogy movement.
What is a tertulia? A tertulia can be described as a literary and artistic social gathering or philosophy cafe where participants talk about ideas. Tertulias combine words, music, poetry, art and whatever else speakers want to share.
