Goedgedacht Farm, Outside Cape Town, South Africa (27 & 28 June)
The EighthInternational Conference of the Popular Education Network (PEN) will take place in at ‘Goedgedacht Farm’ (http://goedgedachtevents.org.za/accommodation/ ) a rural development programme outside Cape Town, with a pre-conference day on 26 June, at Community House, Salt River, in the City.
PEN 2018 invites university-based teachers, researchers, students and activists particularly from Africa and other countries in the global South, who share a common interest in popular education. PEN is an international network of university teachers, researchers, students and activists who share a radical understanding of their work as educators and activists. One of the main purposes of PEN is to defend the radical margins of university adult and community education. Bi-annual conferences serve to sustain a sense of solidarity and common purpose. This PEN conference places particular emphasis on the important link between marginalized communities and academics as equal partners in knowledge production and the struggle for meaningful change.
