Danny Mamlok is a Horizon Postdoctoral Fellow under the aegis of Concordia’s Early Childhood and Elementary Education program, the UNESCO Co-Chair in the Prevention of Radicalisation and Violent Extremism, and the federally funded SOMEONE Project. He holds a PhD in Educational Leadership, Culture, and Curriculum from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. His dissertation, Digital Technology and Education in the Age of Globalization, explored social and cultural aspects of integrating technology and education, and specifically dealt with questions regarding democracy, education, and citizenship. His research at Concordia University elaborates on some of the themes discussed in his dissertation, and specifically examines the influences of digitized play worlds on young children and the ways in which they forge their identity, with the aim of developing resilience against hate speech. Beyond his interests in educational technologies and sociocultural studies in education, his research interests include philosophy of education, democracy and education, and aesthetic education.
