There is no genuine possibility of hope if we cannot face all aspects of reality and of humanity: the good, the bad, the broken, and the seriously messed up.” With this profound insight, “Hospicing Modernity” emerges as a thought-provoking and hard-hitting book authored by Vanessa Machado de Oliveira Andreotti. Through compelling stories and metaphors, Andreotti delves into the deep influence of modernity on human thought, behavior, relationships, fears, and desires. She invites readers to provide palliative care to a dying modernity while simultaneously offering prenatal care for the emergence of a new and yet-to-be-defined future that holds the potential for greater wisdom and responsibility.
Vanessa Machado de Oliveira Andreotti is an internationally celebrated Latinx educator and the new Dean of the Faculty of Education at the University of Victoria. She is a former Canada Research Chair in Race, Inequalities and Global Change and the former David Lam Chair in Multicultural Education. Vanessa’s research problematizes approaches to education and global change that reproduce paternalistic forms of relationships; simplistic solutions to complex problems; and ethnocentric ideals of sustainability, equity, justice, and change. Vanessa is the author of Hospicing Modernity and one of the co-founders of the Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures Collective, which promotes the practice of depth/probiotic education.
Giovanna de Oliveira Andreotti is a recent graduate in psychology, a dancer and a dedicated dance instructor. Through involuntary inherited biological circumstances (aka being Vanessa’s daughter), she has been a life-long (un)willing test subject and insightful critic of depth/probiotic education, having an invaluable perspective on its risks, generative potential and impact. Giovanna’s insights stem from her deep immersion in the zeitgeist of GenZ. As a representative of this generation, she critically embodies their collective aspirations, concerns, frustrations and resilience in the face of a future that feels compromised and stolen.
