Hacer Escuela/Inventing School: Rethinking the Pedagogy of Critical Theory

Hacer Escuela/Inventing School logo

A sub-project of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Grant: Critical Theory in the Global South (award # 21 600 618)

The Hacer Escuela/Inventing School workshop series brings together thinkers and practitioners from across the Americas who have developed new pedagogical techniques influenced by critical theory traditions, to share their work with professors, students, and others studying critical theory in the United States. Our project asks how, notwithstanding the increasing imposition of neoliberal measures, a variety of education movements from Latin American and the Caribbean have given rise to new understandings of pedagogical relations, of what it means to be a subject of education, and how educational practice can refigure public space.

Each of our speakers will present theoretical reflections and practical techniques that they have developed in the field, inviting the audience to interactively engage with the practices themselves during the workshop sessions.
