Talk: The Concept of Educative Experience in Walter Benjamin’s Critical Theory (Wed 19th July 2019, London)

The centrality of Walter Benjamin’s ‘educative experience’ concept differentiates his work from other critical theorists, suggesting points of contact with the liberal and pragmatic tradition, while pointing to a distinctive practice of teaching and learning (transdisciplinarity, teaching-led research, mimetic education). Nonetheless this concept needs to be problematized, it will be cautioned, in light of changed political and historical circumstances.

All are welcome to join this Philosophy at the Institute of Education seminar; booking is not required.

5:00 pm to 7:15 pm, 19 June 2019
