Program for Holocaust and Genocide Education at the University of Toronto.
Simon has written broadly on critical approaches to culture and education.
His most recent research has addressed questions of the pedagogical and
ethical dimensions of practices of cultural memory in the context of our
age of spectacle. This work on memory and the development of historical
consciousness is part of Simon's on-going writing and teaching devoted
to exploring the inter-sections of social and political theory, cultural
practice and pedagogy in regard to the problem of securing a public sphere
which might enable a just and compassionate future society.

I was the first Faculty
Director of CMCE. I teach courses and supervise graduate students in feminist
politics and theory, cultural studies, state formation and government.
My research interests include the social and historical organization of
education policy, as well as the cultural forms and practices of government
and states. In some of my research I have asked about the ways in which
we encounter the state and government in everyday
life, through practices of identification, representation and organization.
In addition to numerous articles and chapters, my publications include
a co-authored book on the politics of feminisms within universities (Unsettling
Relations: The University as a Site of Feminist Struggles, Toronto: Womens
Press, 1991, with Himani Bannerji, Linda Carty, Susan Heald and Kate McKenna);
and a co-edited international collection on histories of school discipline
(Discipline, Moral Regulation and Schooling: A Social History, New York:
Garland Press, 1997, with Kate Rousmaniere, and Ning de Coninck-Smith).

Rinaldo Walcott is
Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Equity Studies
in Education,where he also holds the Canada Research Chair in Social Justice
and Cultural Studies. His teaching and research has been largely in the
area of cultural studies and postcolonial studies with an emphasis on
black diaspora studies. He has published on music, film, queer theory,
literature and theatre. His most recent scholarship branches out from
black studies to engage with other forms of marginalized difference in
the Canadian nation making project. This new project is called "
Other Canadians and the Re-making of the Nation" and will result
in the "Other Canadians Database: Culture Re-making the Nation"
which will consist of film and video made by "Other Canadians"
that directly confronts the nation making project. Rinaldo is the author
of Black Like Who:? Writing Black Canada (1997, Insomniac Press); and
the editor of Rude: Contemporary Black Canadian Cultural Criticism (2000,
Insomniac Press). He was a member of the former Borderlines editorial
collective and a former editorial board member of Fuse Magazine.
