Guest Speaker: Karen Szydlik

The title of the REAIE 2017 conference is Landscapes of Identity. This conference will celebrate the complex identities of children as citizens with rights from birth, educators as researchers and families as participants in early childhood centres and schools as places of learning, democracy, and culture. 
Who am I then?  Tell me that first... And then, if I like being that person, I'll come up: if not, I'll stay down here till I'm somebody comes to get me.  I would like very much for someone to put their head in here and say something, because I am tired of being alone. (Carroll 1865)
Loris Malaguzzi was so inspired by this passage in Alice in Wonderland that he gave the title to a major conference held in Reggio Emilia in 1990.  The title, 'Who am I then, Tell me that first', took on a cultural and pedagogical manifesto to recognise childhood as having an identity and also the right of childhood to testify to an identity accepted and shared by children.          (taken from REAIE 2017 conference website)
During the next two terms we will explore together the concept of identity of the child, the family and of the educator as an introduction to the conference in July.
Karen Szydlik, will begin our discussion on the 21 March as she talks with us about: 
 Dynamic Identities of Families and Children.
