  • Hi all:

    The meeting time for the AEATIG has been changed to Wed March 28 at noon. Please look for room assignment in the program. Unfortunately I will be unable to attend (last minute travel for work) but the room will be available for those wishing to network and share information. If there is a discussion, would someone please take notes and post them to this site so we can all keep up with what goes on?

  • Brian,

    There are definitely anthropologists in education and anthro-based scholars in education who use Friere quite a lot. I would begin by taking a look at articles and books by Julio Cammarota, an anthropologist who uses Friere extensively in education. He will citing some others, as well, to get you started. I would also search the journal Anthropology and Education Quarterly for related terms, because Friere, critical pedagogy, etc, are often cited.

  • What kinds of things and who have you been reading Brian? Anthro and ed covers some pretty wide territory and there are people who engage various theories. There are some approaches to education through critical race theory that remind me of Friere and Bourdieu and others certainly makes a case for a critical stance toward education as social reproduction. I'm sure folks on this list could come up with other critical approaches.

  • I am writing an article on Paulo Freire and his relationship to anthropology.  I have discovered that "Anthropology and Education" does not address Freire and critical pedagogy much.  I will write about this.  Please help me understand why. Best, Brian

  • I will not be avaiable on Saturday either. Earlier time feasible?

  • Hi Brinnie,

    I received this message and will not be in town as late as Saturday. I would try to come to an earlier meeting on Wed. or Thurs. I hope you are well.

  • Hi folks:

    Just got notified by SfAA that the AEA TIG meeting in Baltimore is assigned to the Saturday 12-1:20 timeslot. I believe that might be the very last session of the conference. Not ideal. Perhaps we can meet informally earlier. I'm not sure if this group is still active so if anyone gets this note, would you please respond even just to say that messages are getting through?
