Gramsci, Freire, and adult education : possibilities for transformative action by Peter Mayo( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on two of the most cited figures in the debate on radical education - Antonio Gramsci and Paulo Freire. Both regarded forms of adult education as having an important role to play in the struggle for liberation from oppression. In this book Peter Mayo examines the extent to which their combined insights can provide the foundation for a theory for our own times of transformative adult education. He focuses on three aspects of the pedagogical process in particular - social relations, sites of practice and the content of adult education. He analyses their ideas and identifies some of the limitations in their work, notably the critical issues of gender and race which they do not address."--Jacket

Hegemony and education under neoliberalism insights from Gramsci by Peter Mayo( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based in a holistic exposition and appraisal of Gramsci's writings that are of relevance to education in neoliberal times, this book--rather than simply applying Gramsci's theories to issues in education--argues that education constitutes the leitmotif of his entire oeuvre and lies at the heart of his conceptualization of the ancient Greek term hegemony that was used by other political theorists before him.
