indicative quotes

"Hérnandez’s (1997) liberationist agenda for a transformative pedagogy, with its commitment to democracy, social justice and social change, fits well in the intercultural discourse our summer school experiments with, but we also use many other conceptual frames to analyse the turbulent effects of globalization on our late capitalist societies. Planned by “women in literature”, the school is based on the study and practice of auto/biographical storytelling: how stories are told, how we share meanings, construct narratives, use rhetorical strategies, understand body language, experience signs, read images, etc. We draw attention to the metanarratives embedded in the stories, hoping that by deconstructing them we may realize how control, power and knowledge are, and have been, re/configured, and how we can resist some of their more unwholesome pulls."

“How do we develop a sustainable, critical, intercultural curriculum that respects our own and others’ needs?” Clare Hemmings
