Event Title
Library Salon #29:
 Learning Within Socio-Political Landscapes: (Re)imagining Children’s Geographies

We welcome you to join us for a 90-minute launch event featuring educators and the guest editors of the Bank Street Occasional Paper Series #48, Learning within Socio-political Landscapes: (Re)imagining Children’s Geographies.

This issue, which was guest-edited by Kathryn Lanouette, GSE ’06, Assistant Professor at William & Mary’s School of Education, and Katie Headrick Taylor, Associate Professor at University of Washington’s College of Education, launched in November to bring together educators and researchers to (re)imagine what it means to teach and learn within the immediacy of the here and now, an orientation central to Lucy Sprague Mitchell’s earlier conceptualizations of children’s geographies and crucial now to confronting contemporary threats to children’s lives, democracy, and the planet.

This hybrid library salon will be held with an in-person audience and also include a Zoom link for remote participants. An opening mapping activity will anchor a discussion about the role of place, technologies, and physical movement in understanding and improving complex relationships beyond the scale of the local.
