Pedagogy of the Oppressed pt. 1
RADICAL PEDAGOGY RESEARCH GROUP
In the second session of the radical pedagogy reading group, we will start reading Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire together with the section titled Lordship and Bondage from Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. Please download and read the relevant sections in advance of the reading group via the links below.
- Freire, Paulo (1996/1968). Chapter 1. Pedagogy of the Oppressed. New York: Continuum. Freire critiques the traditional “banking model of education” and argues for a radical reconceptualisation of learners and teachers as partners in the learning process. The book is composed of 4 chapters, we can read it over four sessions together with an excerpt from one of the texts that Freire cites in each chapter.
- Hegel, Georg W. F. (1977). Lordship and Bondage. In Phenomenology of Spirit. Oxford: Oxford University Press, pp. 111-119.
We will also discuss the organisation of the reading group including introductions, facilitation, practical outcomes, the programme for upcoming sessions, timing, how we will communicate and whether we need to have separate meetings to make these decisions.
