Biographie

Jessie Beier est enseignante, artiste, auteure, et créatrice de «pédagogies étranges» pour des futurs impensés. Elle a récemment terminé son doctorat à l’Université de l’Alberta dans le Département de l’éducation secondaire.Travaillant à l'intersection de la philosophie, de la (non)production artistique et de la pédagogie radicale, la pratique de recherche-création de Beier joue avec le potentiel de la pédagogie étrange pour mobiliser une rupture avec les référents orthodoxes et les habitudes de répétition, et pour mener vers des modes de pensée plus éco-logiques. Beier a récemment terminé son projet doctoral, financé par le CRSH, est intitulé:« Pedagogy at the End of the World: Weird Pedagogies for Unthought Educational Futures. » Situé sur la toile de fond d'une convergence de crises de plus en plus impensables, ce travail de philosophie spéculative de l'éducation sonde les axiomes qui surdéterminent maintenant l'avenir de l'éducation tout en développant une série de pédagogies « étranges » visant à positionner l'éducation à la (soi-disant) fin du monde.
