CLAREC Reading Group Michaelmas Term 2021: “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” (Freire, 1968)
…We educate one another in communion in the context of living in this world.
Following our previous reading group on ‘The idea of Latin America’, for this Michaelmas term we welcome everyone to reflect, discuss and reinvent collectively some of the ideas of Paulo Freire, one of the greatest thinkers in education. This initiative is part of the Paulo Freire 100th Anniversary: Celebrating his legacy in education, a series of academic and cultural activities organized by CLAREC in partnership with the Faculty of Education and partner institutions.

About the Book: Pedagogy of the Oppressed (1968) constitutes one of the most prominent works of Paulo Freire and a foundational text for the field of critical pedagogies. In this book, Freire problematizes the relations of domination that characterizes conventional education and discusses the possibilities for liberation and emancipation through education. It proposes not only an educational theory but also ontological and epistemological perspectives about humankind and the world.
