Kindness and Interconnectivity

Kindness and Interconnectivity

Recorded: February 14 2019 Set around a fireplace in Queen’s University’s Stauffer Library, this conversation addresses the relations between kindness and interconnectivity. Queen’s Jacqueline M. Davies (Professor in Philosophy) and Paul Grogan (Professor in Terrestrial Ecosystem Ecology) consider, from different disciplinary perspectives, questions like: what does kindness and awareness of interconnection mean in the classroom?  The conversation begins and ends with a guided meditation before the audience is invited to join in to further the discussion.  Speakers:  Paul Grogan is interested in how the plants, animals and soil organisms of terrestrial ecosystems interact with each other and with their physical environment. Understanding these inter-relationships between biology and the flows of energy and nutrients is the basis for predicting how terrestrial ecosystems will respond to changes in climate, land-use, and other perturbations. Jackie Davies is a mother, teacher, immigrant and settler who has spent most of her life in Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe territory, much of it at Queen’s. From her undergraduate studies in Life Sciences, Psychology, and Philosophy to her current affiliations with Philosophy, Gender Studies, Jewish Studies, and Cultural Studies, Jackie is convinced of the epistemic necessity of interdisciplinarity.
