An Evening with Professor Antonia Darder: Freire and Education
Wednesday, January 21 at 5:30pm
William H. Hannon Library, Von der Ahe Family Suite (Level 3)
1 LMU Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90045
One of the most influential
educational philosophers of our times, Paulo Freire contributed to a
revolutionary understanding of education as an empowering and
democratizing force in the lives of the disenfranchised. In this deeply
personal introduction to the man and his ideas, Antonia Darder reflects
on how Freire’s work has illuminated her own life practices and thinking
as an educator and activist. Including both personal memories and a
never-before published, powerful dialogue with Freire himself, Darder
offers a unique “analysis of solidarity,” in mind and spirit. A
heartfelt look at the ways Freire can still inspire a critically
intellectual and socially democratic life, this book is certain to open
up his theories in entirely new ways, both to those already familiar
with his work and those coming to him for the first time.
