A Conversation with Morgan Anderson, assistant Professor of Social Foundations of Education at the University of Northern Iowa, was hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Science.
As part and parcel of its regular research and intellectual talk series at the
faculty of Arts, the Department of English Language and Literature hosted Dr. Morgan Anderson, assistant Professor of Social Foundations of Education at the University of Northern Iowa, and she delivered a virtual talk on “Public Education and Technology: Neoliberalism and the Future of Education.” This event was held on January 10 at 5:00 pm at Mahmoud Darwish Auditorium. In addition, graduate and undergraduate students and faculty members joined this event virtually and in person as well. Dr. Tayseer Abu Odeh was the moderator of this event and the interlocutor of Dr. Anderson; whereby a few professors and graduate students addressed compelling questions.
As far as the key thematic frame of this talk is concerned, both Dr. Anderson and Dr. Abu Odeh explored multiple historical and theoretical approaches through which neoliberalism can be critiqued in light of multiple policies of higher education, social justice, digital learning and research ethics.
