The Hacer Escuela/Inventing School workshop series brings together Latin American thinkers working on philosophies of education influenced by critical theory traditions, with professors, undergraduate and graduate students, and others studying critical theory in North America. Our project asks how, notwithstanding the increasing imposition of neoliberal measures, a variety of education movements from Latin American and the Caribbean have given rise to new understandings of pedagogical relations, of what it means to be a subject of education, and how educational practice can refigure public space.
