The theories and practices of learning. Paulo Freire’s influential text Pedagogy of the Oppressed (first published in English in 1970) argues that educational practices need to engage critically with race and class political contexts rather than reproduce hierarchies of knowledge and unidirectional flows of learning. Jacques Ranciere’s The Ignorant Schoolmaster (1991) offers a narrative of educational practices that engage with these flows of knowledge as practices of power. We are interested in collectively working on how we might propose to learn from each other, rather than establishing a canonical syllabus that we dutifully have to follow. Which means that this glossary is temporary and provisional and will need revising and rewriting.
