Jasjit Sangha: Motherhood, Embodiment and Adult Learning

The next recording from our Brown Bag series in Honour of Roxana Ng is Jasjit Sangha’s discussion of Motherhood, Embodiment and Adult Learning, recorded November 5th, 2013.

This presentation was more informal than the previous two events in the series, and created some interesting dialogue among attendees.
