Pedagogy, Oppression and Transformation in a 'Post-Critical' Climate provides an urgent reflection on Freire's work, in particular his central principles of pedagogy and praxis, offering a variety of critical responses from philosophical, sociological and egalitarian perspectives. The editors explore whether Freire's revolutionary work has stood the test of time and it's relevance to educational discourses today - discourses that frequently contest the ontological and historical aspects of human developmentWhile Freire's work emerged as a response to the problem of providing a transformative educational praxis for justice and equality within a specific cultural and economic milieu, Pedagogy, Oppression and Transformation in a 'Post-Critical' Climate seeks to explore the value and possibilities of transformative praxis in perpetually diverse educational settings and within an increasingly divided globalised world. By building on the earlier emancipatory approach ofFreire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed, it creates an international conversation between academics, educational practitioners and community activists for a new generation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book provides a thoughtful reassessment of the work of Paulo Freire against the background of recent developments in the theory and practice of education. It provides a powerful reminder of the need to bring the personal back into the political project that education ultimately is.' Gert Biesta, Professor of Education, University of Stirling, UK
'This text is timely, prescient, passionate and purposeful, bringing together a set of powerful voices, perspectives and dispositions that breathe new possibilities into pedagogies more likely to liberate and transform than oppress and marginalise...an important contribution to contemporary educational discourses that is at once deeply humanising, enriching and rewarding. Read it, and be inspired to continue Freire's transformative agenda.' Ciaran Sugrue, Professor of Education, University College Dublin, Ireland
'This important and compelling book is an important challenge to the new framing of education in a post critical climate. It addresses the question of educational transformation by exploring the potential in Freire's work for liberation through radical pedagogy and praxis that takes relationality and the affective domain of life seriously.' Diane Reay, Professor of Education, University of Cambridge, UK
