Contributors to the book Literacies, Literature and Learning: Reading Classrooms Differently (Routledge, 2018) constituted a panel today at the Care-Connect-Create conference organised by the University of Cape Town’s Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching.
Afield co-directors Kai Wood Mah and Patrick Lynn Rivers recast their chapter from the book in lieu of the conference theme. This basically meant situating posthumanist ECD (early childhood development) learning within the context of higher education in Africa.
The book is a part of the Decolonizing Early Childhood Discourses project supported with funds from the National Research Foundation (NRF). The book was co-edited by Joanna Haynes and Karin Murris. A faculty member at the University of Cape Town, Murris is also the principal investigator of the project.
