Paulo Freire SIG 159

SIG Purpose

The purpose of the Paulo Freire Special Interest Group (SIG) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) is to honor Freire's legacy by promoting scholarship that applies, extends, critiques, and reinvents Freirean pedagogy. Also, to promote historical scholarship that looks at the life of Paulo Freire and the context of his ideas and practices. Finally, to act as a catalyst for the creation of new forms of critical pedagogies that build upon the foundation that Freire established.
