A facilitated discussion of education, including participant
Producer: George King
Uploaded by: George King
Despite widespread agreement that education must be a fundamental part of creating the free societies that anarchists envision, there seems to be a lack of substantive dialogue about what that education should look like. We will explore some of the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of liberatory education. Participants will be encouraged to draw on their own educational backgrounds and practice (inside and outside traditional educational settings) as we collectively attempt to identify key concepts that support education for fundamental, liberatory change, and think through their application in a variety of settings. Two assumptions will underlie this: first, that "education as schooling" ignores that education happens in a variety of formal and informal contexts; and second, that conceptualizing our theoretical work, activism, propaganda, and explicit educational endeavors as educational and pedagogical can help our work to be more purposeful and deliberate in our efforts at social change.

This talk was presented at the third Renewing the Anarchist Tradition conference, at the Institute for Social Ecology, August 2001.
