Event Details

Lyn Tett, Professor of Community Education

Public Lecture:   Wednesday 18 January 2017

This lecture will first discuss different approaches to equality at both the global and the local policy levels and their impact on pedagogy. It will then use the lenses offered by Nancy Fraser’s (2008) concepts of redistribution, recognition and participatory parity to investigate if participation in adult literacy education contributes to alleviating social injustices.  It draws on data from case studies of literacy programmes to show that participation has lessened social injustices in all three areas to some extent.  However, it points out that there are many countervailing forces that privilege a narrow, skills-focused, pedagogy that reinforce an individual deficit approach to learners. It concludes that although education is not a panacea for all social ills and cannot compensate for the inequities of society it can make a difference in creating more equitable conditions for those that have already experienced the greatest injustice.
