Radical Pedagogy and the Political Economy Movement
What is the role of Political Economy in contemporary Australia? How does it position itself in the wider discourse of economics and the social sciences? What can Political Economy, as a social and academic movement, teach us?
The tumultuous history of Political Economy at the University of Sydney is reflective of historically and politically contingent contexts. Drawing from long lineages in Classical, Marxist and (Post-)Keynesian economics, political economists have continually fought for radical and heterodox alternatives to conventional social science.
Join our distinguished academics Frank Stilwell, Elizabeth Hill, Joe Collins and Rebecca Pearse in discussing radical pedagogy in Political Economy, as part of Radical Education Week 2018.
Wednesday 22 August 2018, 14:00-15:00, Eastern Avenue Radical Education Week Marquee
