Embodied Storytelling: Exploring Creativity, Criticality, and Collaboration in Environmental Education

While discussions about global warming and climate change have become more mainstream, humans have always had to negotiate the interdependence between our social and ecological networks. This talk invites us to consider what our bodies can remember, as well as reimagine, about our relationship with land. We will explore what happens when we center the body as a creative “text” for knowledge, expression, and communication in our quest to build more just and sustainable futures.

Dr. OreOluwa Badaki is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Teachers College, Columbia University. Bridging research in critical literacy studies, multimodal scholarship, and environmental justice, Dr. Badaki examines how power moves through bodies and spaces within food and land systems. As a writer, movement practitioner, researcher and educator, Dr. Badaki works with youth and communities of color to explore food and environmental justice through the creative and performing arts. She earned her PhD with distinction from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.

Prior to her doctoral work, Dr. Badaki was a middle school Language Arts teacher as well as a program specialist and research consultant with the United Nations, working on initiatives at the intersection of Education for Sustainable Development and Cultural and Creative Industries
