Jämställdhet och likabehandling – en självklar del av akademiskt arbete?

The Center for Professional Development and Education (CPE) will organise a seminar on doing equity work. In the seminar, there will be a guest speaker, Dr. Johanna Ennser-Kananen, who will talk about her development activities around the topic of equity at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. The talk will be followed by a shared discussion.

The exact title and description of the talk will be published in early 2023.

Dr. Johanna Ennser-Kananen is an Academy Research Fellow at the Language and Communications Department of the University of Jyväskylä. In her research, she focuses on linguistic and epistemic legitimacy, the validation and acceptance of language and knowledge practices which (language) learners constantly negotiate with their environment. She is especially interested in how such legitimacy interacts with constructions of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, and class. Additionally, Dr. Ennser-Kananen is the coordinator of the university's Equity Team. In 2022, she and the team received an award on "active development work" at the university. 

The seminar will take place online via Zoom. Everyone interested in equity work in the higher education context is welcome to join.
