Join us as Antonia Darder, Ph.D., Leavey Presidential Chair, LMU School of Education, discusses her recent book, Freire and Education. 

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.

Food and refreshments will be served.

Copies of Freire and Education will be available for purchase and signing by Dr. Darder.

This event is brought to you by the LMU School of Education Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership for Social Justice and the William H. Hannon Library.
