The TASN Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom Reading Group – details below and on the attached poster.
Michelle Coghlan (Manchester) and Nick Grant (UEA) will be running this Reading Group in three sessions. We’ll be asking participants to read about 50 pages of the book for each session, and so will manage to discuss nearly the whole of hooks’ wonderful book by the end of the reading group. But participants will be welcome to attend any or all sessions, as they prefer or their schedules permit.
Interested participants should email for the Zoom links.
