Congratulations to Dr. Vanessa Andreotti, Professor in the Department of Educational Studies (EDST), who was recently elected to Royal Society of Canada as a member of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.
Founded in 2014, the College is a handpicked selection of top mid-career scholars and artists in Canada. College Members have already received recognition in their fields for excellence and serve as ambassadors of their fields.
From the RSC’s announcement:
Vanessa Andreotti holds a CRC in Race, Inequalities and Global Change. She is internationally recognized for her critical scholarship and artistic collaborations in the fields of global citizenship and international development education. Her research problematizes and offers alternatives to mainstream educational approaches that promote simplistic understandings of global problems and solutions, paternalistic engagements between dominant and marginalized groups, and ethnocentric views of justice, sustainability and change.
