“How are we in the world”: Teaching, Writing and Radical Generosity
In the following exchange, Lynn Caldwell (member of the Engaged Scholar Journal Advisory Board, professor of theological ethics at St. Andrew’s College and sessional lecturer in Educational Foundations, Women’s and Gender Studies, at the University of Saskatchewan), and Carrianne Leung, Assistant Professor in creative writing, at the University of Guelph and writer of fiction, discuss radical generosity in the context of teaching in the Fine Arts. They remind us of how as engaged scholars, we carefully nurture generosity of thought, relations, and sharing in our work. They take that ethic one step further to show how radical generosity in the classroom rewards us with a well-informed society, and community of educators, activists, and change-makers.
