Voice: Critical Pedagogy and Public Practice
February 25-27, 2011

Educational theorist Christopher Robbins will offer a keynote presentation and guide intense conversations between artists and educators during a weekend focused on the philosophical underpinnings of critical pedagogy in relationship to public practice in art.

He is the author of Expelling Hope: The Assault on Youth and the Militarization of Schooling (SUNY, 2008).

Organized by Suzanne Lacy and Sara Daleiden of Otis College of Art and Design’s Graduate Public Practice Program, this weekend intensive continues the Concentric Conversations series of dialogic events offered to encourage discourse among L.A. cultural practitioners.
