How do we walk between the lines of socially aware pedagogy and consumer desire? Unlike many topics, media education and studies require equitable and conscientious lenses as we traverse the practical and the esoteric in light of contemporary world events. While we tackle the instructional and mechanical, we are obligated to grapple with the social and political nuances and implications of our work.

Shirley R Steinberg considers herself an expositor and analyst of pretty much the entire universe. Understanding that she is usually wrong and somewhat annoying, she also is Research Professor of Critical Youth Studies at the University of Calgary. An occasional panelist for CTV and CBC, her topics traverse politics, religion, social inequities and rock n' roll. Her recent publications include Behind the Bricolage: Redefining Rigor and Complexity in Research (2021), Handbook of Critical Pedagogies(2020), The Stigma of Genius: Einstein, Consciousness and Critical Education. Originally from Baltimore, she reached Calgary via Los Angeles, New York and Montreal. Thrilled to be "back" in Montreal with dear friends at Concordia.
