Social Movements and Autonomous Education: New Pedagogical Experiences

Project: Research council

Project Details

Layman's description

This research will explore autonomous pedagogical experiments by social movements in the Global North and in the Global South. By using a participatory action research methodology, the research will bring together the innovative critical pedagogies and practices of the Landless Rural Workers Movement (MST) Brazil and the Social Science Centre (SSC) at Lincoln University, UK. The study will engage with scholarship that considers how new pedagogical practices by grassroots movements and cooperative endeavours are contributing to an innovation in education with wider social, political and economic implications for society. The research will produce theoretical and empirical knowledge about common trends shared by these different experiences and design a theoretical framework to understand them in global-context. The partnership will build upon the applicants' knowledge in the fields of social movements and alternative education and will advance long-term research collaboration between them and their institutions, within wider research networks in Brazil and the UK.
