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.
If you are in full time employment and feel you are able to make a contribution, then a donation of £20 can be used to fund
travel expenses of those who need financial support in order to attend.
If you are unable to attend, please print out the attached files and encourage colleagues to come along instead.
