An invitation to develop Critical Edge Alliance cross-institutional study-groups

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review


There are diverse rationales carrying the Critical Edge Alliance. One of them pertains to the potential educational resources of providing students and teachers with opportunities to exchange understandings, concepts, experiences and perspectives on shared subject matters.
There are various challenges to unfolding this potential. Challenges of both practical, administrative, linguistic, technological and disciplinary character.
In order to succeed, we must test - in and open and curious manner - CEA's concrete scope for various joint initiatives. Many are already well underway with this. The ambition of this talk and workshop is to take a further step in this direction, through an initiative to try-out a teacher-supported cross-institutional study-group for students. The seminar do not bring along ready-made answers to these questions, but rather invite interested students, teachers and administrators to a joint workshop on the formation of a ‘trial balloon’.

AndetThe purpose of the conference is to explore contemporary issues around boundary crossing, as they relate to universities and learning, broadly conceived.<br/><br/>​This conference is dedicated to the memory of our colleague Professor L.H.M. “Lily” Ling, a founding member of the Critical Edge Alliance, who tragically passed away last year. The conference is designed in the spirit of Ling’s Silk Road Research Initiative, a research collective that pursued the re-imagination of world politics.<br/><br/>As part of that work, students and faculty from The New School (New York, NY) organized in 2013 around a shared vision: to transform the foundation that underpins today’s international system by thinking creatively about world politics.
