We are delighted to share the good news that the Localising Philosophy project co-led by Dr Dominic Smith and Dr Anna Robb has secured two small research grants for work to be carried out in primary and secondary schools in the Dundee area.
From 24th – 31st May we will be taking a team of student colleagues into four local primary schools, to do a series of Philosophy workshops with their Primary 7 classes (c. 200 pupil). We have been funded to do this by the Arts and Humanities Research Institute at the University of Dundee.
On 10th June, we will be bringing (or, better: bridging) these pupils together, as part of a preparation day at their new secondary school.
From 3rd – 7th October, we will be doing follow-up reflective workshops with the pupils, in their new guise as secondary school pupils. We have been funded to do this by the Royal Institute of Philosophy.
The brief the schools set us was to do meaningful philosophical work with these pupils on the theme of ‘Transitions’. We look forward to sharing details of the impacts.
Sincere thanks to our supporters.
