Please join Practical Anarchy on November 25 at Bluestockings for a discussion of Anarchist Pedagogies: Collective Actions, Theories, and Critical Reflections on Education, edited by Richard Haworth.
Anarchist Pedagogies is a wide-ranging investigation of historical practice and theoretical reflection that will be valuable to anarchists, activists, and critical educators seeking to participate in and create teaching and learning environments outside of authoritarian and capitalist structures. Through discussions ranging from Francisco Ferrer’s modern schools in Spain and the Work People’s College in the United States, to contemporary actions in developing “free skools” in the U.K. and Canada, to direct-action education such as learning to work as a “street medic” in the protests against neoliberalism, the contributors to this volume address historical anarchist experiments in education, ways that contemporary anarchists create dynamic and situated learning spaces, and finally, critically reflecting on theoretical frameworks and educational practices.
