EDUC 219 - Education and the Ethical Imagination

An introduction to a variety of critical voices that engage with the violences of the past and present in ways that give rise to questions about how and from where ethical commitments emerge. Beginning with foundational epistemological questions about the construction of the subject and its relation to others, readings offer counter-hegemonic histories and visions about responsibility, solidarity, and social action. With an eye toward futurity, the class seeks to carve out space to reconsider the relationship between social imaginations and material conditions in order to reevaluate everything from mundane acts of kindness to political fidelities.
