In this event, Jade will highlight the role that recognition, as understood by Charles Taylor, has in shaping a teacher’s caring pedagogical responses, and the dangers of, at best, ignoring aspects of social identities and, at worst, denying these exist in the first place. 

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in philosophy of education, care ethics and social justice.
