Speculative Pedagogies: Post-Philosophies and the Doing and Teaching of Inquiry

Thursday, 24 February, 2022

Dr. Candace Kuby is a professor of learning, teaching and curriculum at the University of Missouri, serving as the Department Chair and the Director of Qualitative Inquiry. She received her Ph.D. in Literacy, Culture, and Language Education from Indiana University. Dr. Kuby previously taught primary grades in public U.S. schools and preschoolers in Japan. 

In this session, Dr. Kuby focuses on speculative pedagogies inspired by post-philosophies, specifically how philosophical concepts inspire the doing of inquiry and the teaching of inquiry in higher education. The talk focuses on the suggested readings and a recent co-authored book, Speculative Pedagogies of Qualitative Inquiry, (Kuby & Christ, 2020). Dr. Kuby gives pedagogical examples from two threads of her research agenda: 1) the coming-to-be of literacies when young children work with artistic and digital tools, and 2) approaches to and pedagogies of qualitative inquiry when thinking with poststructural and posthumanist philosophies. Dr. Kuby has provided three suggested readings for the session; she’ll open spaces for questions around these.
