Description:

Join SNID for a talk by Aziz Choudry, Department of Integrated Studies in Education, McGill University.  Everyone welcome!

 

The learning and knowledge production that occurs within progressive movements for change is often overlooked by adult education and social movement scholarship. Yet many powerful insights and ideas about social change have been produced by people as they struggle for a better world. Some organizers, educators and activists engage with, and invoke earlier, albeit contested, histories of struggles to help think through strategies, analyze problems, tensions and possibilities. This talk explores the place of historical knowledge in contemporary activism, the ways that activists and social movements strive to document their experiences, and how they critically engage with and educate from history.
