Thanks so much to these participants in The Learning Gene‘s pre-episode.
Erin Manning – this project, The Learning Gene, takes inspiration from a recent article by Erin Manning that explores the risky and critical nature of “starting in the middle.” Erin Manning holds a University Research Chair in Relational Art and Philosophy in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). She is also the director of the SenseLab, a laboratory that explores the intersections between art practice and philosophy through the matrix of the sensing body in movement..
Patricia Pardo – Patricia Pardo is Director of Accessibility Services at Mount Royal University. She holds a PhD in in Educational Psychology with a specialization in Disability and Multicultural Organizational Change.
Joy Hodgson & Laura Grant – Joy and Laura are BFF’s who met while attending Mount Royal University for their Psychology degrees. Though in the same program and working in the same research lab, it took 4 months of full-time summer research work alone in a windowless office for their friendship to bloom. Countless hours of cat videos, soy lattes, and back-to-back podcast episodes brought these two gender philoso-warriors together. Podcasts are where it all began, and they are overjoyed to be bringing that love to a whole new level by participating in the inaugural episode of The Learning Gene.
