Emancipatory Education Now is a student-led initiative at the SJSU Lurie College of Education that examines what emancipatory education – the critical evaluation of the systems and structures of oppression that maintain the status quo in our educational institutions – looks like in today’s society and advocates for the expansion of emancipatory education research, policies, and practices.
In this episode, you can learn more about our student co-hosts – Abby, Aminah, Ana, Vaishnavi, and Victor – through their name stories. They also share a preview of some of the topics they plan to discuss in more detail later this semester.
The call to action for this episode: Exchange your name story with a family member, friend, colleague, or classmate!
Additional resources shared in this episode include:
- Asher, N. (2009) Decolonization and Education: Locating Pedagogy and Self at the Interstices in Global Times
- The Four I’s of Oppression YouTube Video
