Dr. Elisa Lacerda-Vandenborn
University of Calgary

Dr. Elisa Lacerda-Vandenborn (she/her) was born and grew up in Curitiba, Brazil and made Canada home in 2004 Dr. Lacerda-Vandenborn's research focuses on philosophical and theoretical ideas about the self; how these are interpreted and translated into social institutional practices, beliefs, and legislation and the social implications associated with them. She critiques individualistic approaches in favor of more communal perspectives of selfhood in learning, teaching, and research, particularly for education, counseling psychology, and child welfare. This ontological work is closely related with issues of relational and situated epistemologies, community-led, based, and participatory methodologies, and communal axiological principles in the social sciences.
