Peacebuilding, Music & Ecological Care: The Power of Music-Making in Rooted Places
February 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Anyone interested in music education won’t want to miss this visit from Dr. Daniel Shevock. Dr. Shevock is a pioneering leader in making connections between ecological literacy and music education. His work bridges autoethnography with historical and philosophical examinations of practices that cultivate a love for place and the natural world. Notions of ecological care arrive at a new philosophy for music education and education more broadly as a spiritual praxis rooted in soil communities, informed by ecology’s intrinsic value for non-human beings and music making. In this presentation, Dr. Shevock will explore philosophies on soil and rootedness, suggesting how we might move into deeper non-human relationships and practices of care.
