Dr. Pauline E. Bullen
Born in Guyana, IGS’s Director, Dr. Pauline E. Bullen, is an Interdisciplinary, International, Feminist scholar and “Educulturalist” with a PhD in Sociology and Equity Studies in Education from the University of Toronto. Committed to teaching critically and to nurturing future scholars in a manner committed to feminist practice and advanced education models, her work advocates a pedagogical culture of questioning about the effects of power and privilege and the mechanisms through which they may constrain, deny or exclude particular forms of agency. Her work is also informed by her lived experiences in Guyana, Canada, Nigeria, USA and Zimbabwe and by her belief that, in order to become productive citizens, all individuals should have opportunities to expand their worldviews by looking not only inward, but also outward to the culture(s) around them. Two of Dr. Bullen’s peer reviewed published works are:
