Congrats Dr. Stack on being appointed a Peter Wall Scholar

Congratulations Dr. Michelle Stack on being appointed a Peter Wall Scholar for 2020-2021.

From the Wall Scholars announcement page:

“As a Wall Scholar, Prof. Stack hopes to expand conversations around a networked approach of academics, activists, educators, and students to uncover the values and beliefs behind rankings, while offering space for the development of approaches to education that are grounded in social, environmental, and cognitive justice.  Drawing on emerging work around arts and concepts of collectivity as a counter to intense competition and alienation, Prof. Stack will work with interested Wall Scholars and others in theatre, film, journalism, and creative writing to expand public conversations around rankings. Much of the critical research on rankings is in academic journals that may have a high impact in academic circles, but little influence on public discourse and policy framing. She plans to organize and host a series of events with a particular focus on using arts-based approaches to discuss what education beyond rankings might look and feel like.”
