Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building

Learning Together: Education that is Individually, Socially and Institutionally Transformative

Jacob Dunne (undergraduate criminologist, Nottingham Trent University)
Ruth Armstrong (Criminology)
Amy Ludlow (Law)

 

 

Paolo Friere said:  ‘Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.’ Contributors will engage with the constraints, realities and potential of education as the practice of freedom. Jacob Dunne (undergraduate criminologist, Nottingham Trent) will draw on his own experiences and struggles in gaining access to higher education after serving a prison sentence and Ruth Armstrong (Criminology) and Amy Ludlow (Law) will draw on their experiences of teaching masters level criminology to a class of prisoners and Cambridge post-grads.
