BEYOND THE NEO-LIBERAL UNIVERSITY

CRITICAL PEDAGOGY AND ACTIVISM

COVENTRY UNIVERSITY – FRIDAY 18th SEPTEMBER 2015

Warwick UCU committee encourages you to attend this UCU-sponsored event.

Around the world there have been a whole series of occupations and protests led by students, as well as actions involving lecturers and teachers, which reflect widespread disillusion with the way universities have come to act primarily as money making

institutions.  This event will begin with speakers who will set out the social and economic context for the marketisation of Higher Education, followed by participatory workshops on issues of activism, pedagogy and research.

The event begins at 9.30 and concludes at 4.00.  Light refreshments will be provided.

This event is free to attend but you must register.
