Jessie Beier is a teacher, artist, writer and conjurer of strange pedagogies for unthought futures. Working at the intersection of philosophy, artistic production, and radical pedagogy, Beier’s practice experiments with the potential for weird pedagogy to mobilize a break from orthodox referents and habits of repetition, towards more eco-logical modes of thought. Beier is currently a Horizon Postdoctoral Fellow at Concordia University and her current research-creation practice experiments with developing ecological dissensus and heretical forms of pedagogy aimed at collective practices of negation, refusal and fabulation. Beier has presented her work — through exhibitions, public workshops, and conference/symposia —  both locally and inter/nationally and has also published in a range of scholarly books and journals. Her most recent writing project is a co-edited book (with jan jagodzinski) titled Ahuman Pedagogy: Multidisciplinary Perspectives for Education in the Anthropocene (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022).
