POSITIVE POLITICS PODCAST EPISODE 5: EDUCATION.
In this episode, Joel and Neil explore the current realities and alternatives of education, specifically higher education, today. We start by interviewing Dr Richard Hall about the struggles of life in the neo-liberal university today where everything is reduced to the logic and interests of money and profit. We then ask Dr Gurnam Singh to help us to think about very different, democratic, empowering, and critical ways of thinking about and engaging in teaching and learning. Finally, we hear from Dr Sarah Amsler about an exciting new project based in Lincoln, UK called the Social Science Centre - an attempt to make real the ideas and values of critical pedagogy and popular education.
