What Do We Owe Knowers?
Casey Johnson, Ph.D., Asst Prof, Philosophy
We are, as knowers, engaged in epistemic projects like inquiry, learning, and increased understanding. Few of these projects can be accomplished without help from other knowers. This interdependence renders us vulnerable to the epistemic behavior of others. In light of these vulnerabilities, what do we owe one another? What are our epistemic obligations to other knowers?

Educating Unique Populations: Pedagogy and Practices in Prison
Omi Hodwitz, Ph.D., Asst Prof, Sociology
The University of Idaho is committed to providing transformative learning experiences for students of all backgrounds. Incarcerated students occupy a small yet growing portion of our U of I student base but are often overlooked in discussions of pedagogy and practice. This session will focus on their unique educational experiences and needs. We will discuss current U of I prison education initiatives, approaches and challenges to prison-based education, and lessons learned from the field.
