Birkbeck Critical Pedagogies group

About us

The Critical Pedagogies group is a space to discuss and share practices of critical pedagogy in the context of higher education. As a group, we would like to map and engage in the histories, literature and issues of critical pedagogies and share and experiment with methods used in critical pedagogical practices. We hope to create a space in Birkbeck to discuss the limits and opportunities of critical pedagogy in the current context of increasing fees, marketisation and undemocratic governance of Higher Education.

We meet twice a term to discuss readings and host events.
