Description: 

This course explores the key concepts and thinkers of the critical pedagogy movement and how these have informed Christian theology and education. The course is grounded in the writings of Brazilian educator Paulo Freire, exploring his critical pedagogy as a response to situations where human dignity is threatened. The further contributions of scholars of critical and feminist pedagogies will expand the conversation to consider critical pedagogy as a Christian response to suffering and oppression. Centered on Freire’s dialogical approach to education, the course invites students to examine the interconnectedness of love, hope, justice, and dialogue in religious education and pastoral ministry.
