Reading Group

The Critical Pedagogies Reading Group is a space to discuss and share practices of critical pedagogy in the context of higher education. As a group, we would like to map and engage in the histories, literature and issues of critical pedagogies and share and experiment with methods used in critical pedagogical practices. We hope to create a space to discuss the limits and opportunities of critical pedagogy in the current context of increasing fees, marketisation and undemocratic governance of Higher Education.

We meet twice a term over lunch to discuss readings.  Meetings are held at the University of Westminster. The reading group is open to everyone.  If you plan to attend a session please notify Jennifer Fraser ( so that you are able to access the building.
