290A: Tps:Radical Philosophy and Education
This course examines radical philosophy as it applies education, paying particular attention to the relationship between education and social transformation. To do so, it subjects fundamental assumptions about education to interrogation, exploring the political possibilities of ignorance, failure, weakness, authority, miscommunication, and forgetting. Students read contemporary works that relate educational theory to social movements against exploitation, oppression, and colonialism.
