Learning with Adults: A Critical Pedagogical Introduction

2012 – 292 pages

Sense Publishers

Leona M. English (St. Francis Xavier University, Canada) and Peter Mayo (University of Malta, Msida, Malta)

ISBN Hardcover: 9789460917677 ($ 99.00)

Subject: Adult Education

Number 8 of the series: International Issues in Adult Education

Free Preview Learning with Adults

“A priceless resource …The time is ripe for writing a manifesto of adult education as social transformative learning in the twenty-first century and implement all sorts of experiments in adult education that may help transform the world. This book is a robust contribution to such conversation.”–International Journal of Lifelong Education (Issue 32(6))

“This book is written at a time when our own field of adult education is under assault from a variety of capitalist and neoconservative forces pressuring us… to turn away from the causes of criticality, lifelong learning, and education for freedom. Rather than succumb to these pressures, we have hope that our long term goals of education for life and living can and will be accomplished alongside professional and vocational education. It offers new insight into what is a very dark moment of our human civilization.” — From the preface by Dr Carlos Alberto Torres, Professor, GSEIS, Director, Paulo Freire Institute, University of California at Los Angeles

“The book offers decidedly critical and international perspectives on various aspects of adult education, especially on state, citizenship and neoliberal policies. Critical in both content and method, it is at the same time the part of the collective work needed to advance the Belém call to action by furthering awareness and capacity in the field of adult education.” — Dr Katarina Popovic, Professor, Universität Duisburg-Essen, University of Belgrade & DBB International

“In the midst of diminishing resources and growing inequalities, English and Mayo provide an incisive and much needed critique of adult education in ways that highlight not only its historical and philosophical roots but also its major significance to the practice of democracy. In a direct challenge to the neoliberal accountability craze, Learning with Adults offers a rigorous political reading of the field—one that systematically challenges oppressive educational policies and practices, while affirming an emancipatory vision of civic engagement. Truly an informative treatise that sheds new light on the education of adults.” Dr Antonia Darder, Professor & Leavey Presidential Endowed Chair in Education Loyola Marymount University Los Angeles

“Leona English and Peter Mayo challenge hegemonic assumptions and ideas, while offering a constructive alternative based on the principle of working with learners and not just for them. Their analysis is accessible enough for newcomers to the field, while the authors’ wide-ranging coverage and radical approach provide refreshing and challenging messages for the most experienced adult educator. Up-to-date, genuinely international and passionately committed, Learning with Adults is a great book.” – Dr John Field, Professor, University of Stirling

POSTCOLONIAL DIRECTIONS IN EDUCATION

FOCUS AND SCOPE

Postcolonial Directions in Education is a peer reviewed open access journal produced twice a year. It is a scholarly journal intended to foster further understanding, advancement and reshaping of the field of postcolonial education.

We welcome articles that contribute to advancing the field. As indicated in the Editorial for the inaugural issue, the purview of this journal is broad enough to encompass a variety of disciplinary approaches, including but not confined to the following: sociological, anthropological, historical and social psychological approaches.

The areas embraced include anti-racist education, decolonizing education, critical multiculturalism, critical racism theory, direct colonial experiences in education and their legacies for present day educational structures and practice, educational experiences reflecting the culture and ‘imagination’ of empire, the impact of neoliberalism / globalisation / structural adjustment programmes on education, colonial curricula and subaltern alternatives, education and liberation movements, challenging hegemonic languages, the promotion of local literacies and linguistic diversity, neo-colonial education and identity construction, colonialism and the construction of patriarchy, canon and canonicity, Indigenous knowledges , supranational bodies and their educational frameworks, north-south and east-west relations in education, the politics of representation, unlearning colonial stereotypes, internal colonialism and education, Cultural hybridity and learning  in  postcolonial contexts, education and the politics of dislocation, biographies / autobiographies reflecting the above themes, deconstruction of colonial narratives of civilization within educational contexts.

Once again the field cannot be exhausted.

TWO SEPTEMBER 11ths – BY PETER MAYO

On the 35th anniversary of the Night of the Pencils (noche de los lapices) in Argentina, I sent this latest piece of mine which went up yesterday (17th September) at Conterpunch. It was written in a hurry yesterday morning.

“The past week led to several reflections on the significance of the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. This is as it should be. The memories of the several victims of this dastardly attack demand this. Equally appropriate were columns such as those appearing in this outlet reflecting on the policies adopted by the USA in the aftermath of these attacks and the extent to which they suited a culture of militarization, civil repression and consumerism. Obscured because of the particular connotation this date has taken is the memory of another September 11th which connects with some of the policies decried by many in the aftermath of the New York and Washington attacks – the Chilean coup d’etat led by the late Augusto Pinochet against the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende in 1973.

Last Monday marked the thirty eight anniversary of this bloody coup which paved the way, and is said to have been deliberately staged to pave the way, for the introduction of the very same neoliberal reforms that, later at a global level, are shown to have benefited from the measures adopted post 9/11/2001.”
