3rd International Conference on Critical Pedagogies and Philosophies of Education
- Judith Suissa (Institute of Education, UK)

- Richard Smith (University of Durham, UK)
- Peter Roberts (University of Canterbury, NZ)
"There is no room, in the constitution of this needed discipline, for an identification of the act of studying, of learning, of knowing, of teaching, with pure entertainment – learn as a kind of toy or game, without rules or with lax ones. Nor again must it be identified with insipid, uninteresting, boring busywork. The act of studying, teaching, learning, knowing, is difficult, and specially, it is demanding, but is pleasant…It is so crucial, then, that educands discover and sense the joy that steeps it, that is part of it, and that is ever ready to fill the hearts of all who surrender to it". Paulo Freire, (2006), The Pedagogy of Hope, London: Continuum, p. 69.
Building on the successes of the 1 st and 2nd International Conferences on Critical Pedagogies and Philosophies of Education, this conference will bring together international scholars in philosophy of education to consider the significance of critical pedagogy and philosophy of education to international contemporary debates across educational theory and practice.
