Autonomous and decolonial pedagogies, social movements and education in Brazil and the UK
This event brought together researchers from Brazil and the UK to explore the intersections between colonial/decolonial pasts and presents and the contemporary politics of education in universities in Brazil and the UK. The event created a space of exchange between Brazil and the UK to think the challenges and possibilities on thinking and practising autonomous and decolonial pedagogies within and beyond university and higher education. It explored the role of social movements and how they intersect with higher education in Brazil and examined the creation of different educational spaces that allow for thinking with, past and beyond colonial histories and pedagogies.
