Who we have worked with
Dr. Hedy Lahmann, University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy
Jess Oddy is a brilliant EiE scholar, professional, and educator. I had the privilege of hosting Ms. Oddy (title?) as a guest speaker for my International Development and Education course at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago, and students referred back to her lecture and her work throughout time and again throughout the quarter. She blends a wealth of scholarly knowledge, innovative ideas, and practical experience into her discussions. She is able to translate thick theoretical concepts into accessible and practical examples from her wealth of experience in the field. Her work is powerful, important, and resonates with the needs of the education in conflict and crisis sector right now.
Dr. Amy Kapit, Swarthmore College
Jess's guest lectures have enriched my classes on education in emergencies and peace & conflict studies. She brings a valuable and critical perspective that draws on her wealth of experience as a practitioner and research and has helped my students think about how to do humanitarian aid in a way that is more equitable, peaceful, and just. My students have returned to her insights repeatedly throughout the course of our semester together.
Dr. Lealle Ruhl, Langara College
Your presentation left the students with lots to talk about--I especially appreciated the distinction you drew between colonization and coloniality--this has helped many of our students make sense of the structural oppression we have been studying that links systemic violence and oppression.
