Public Seminar Series Michaelmas term 2022

Convened by Professor Alexander Betts (Director, Refugee Studies Centre)

This year the RSC Public Seminar Series will take place through fortnightly seminars, on Tuesday lunchtimes from 1-2pm. This term, the seminars will cover a wide-range of themes, including social cohesion, humanitarian energy, refugee education, and statelessness. 

About the speaker

Sarah Dryden-Peterson is an associate professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She leads REACH (Research, Education, and Action to create Change and Hope), a program that focuses on the connections between education and community development, specifically the role that education plays in building peaceful and participatory societies.

In her field-based research globally, in her teaching, and in her role as founder and director of REACH, she examines what it would take for all children to access quality education, be part of welcoming communities, and contribute to building peaceful futures. Her research connects practice, policy, and scholarship and is strengthened through sustained collaborations with communities, NGOs, governments, and UN agencies, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries particularly those that are conflict-affected. Dryden-Peterson’s research has played critical roles in shaping global policy and local programs that have the potential to create quality, conflict-informed, and future-creating education for millions of children globally in settings of migration and displacement. Raised in Toronto, Canada, Dryden-Peterson taught primary and middle school in Madagascar, South Africa, and the United States.­

Registration

This seminar will be held in person. No registration required.
