Critical Education in Capitalism

DATE: November 11th, 2020

In this session, I will build on my recent work on the neoliberalism by locating the current Covid-19 crisis in the crises of capitalism. I will argue that education has had, and will continue to have, a central role for capitalism. Therefore, to comprehend the nature of education necessitates an understanding of capitalist economics. Drawing on the example of higher education in England, I will specify three functions that education has in capitalist economies – my provocation will be about how these functions may alter after this historical moment and how we as (critical) educators could/ought to respond for the objective of social justice.

Speaker: Dr Alpesh Maisuria, Associate Professor of Education Policy in Critical Education at the University of the West of England
