Dr. Steven E. Noble on queer theory and education
On October 27, 2011, CHUO 89.1 FM (Ottawa) The Train's Denis Rancourt interviewed Dr. Steven E. Noble, Educator, Researcher, Councellor, and former professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa.
This is what applied critical pedagogy, inspired by queer theory and critical disability theory, looks like in Dr. Noble's class room -- until he was fired in reprisal for filing a grievance to contest breaches of his contract. And that's what the University of Ottawa looks like.
Dr. Noble is also informed by his community work with addicted youth in the Downtown East Side, Vancouver, by his work with "mental illness" patients, and by his experience with government and public institutions.
