About this book

In this volume, critical scholars and educational activists explore the intricate dynamics between the enclosure of global commons and radical visions of a common social future that breaks through the logics of privatization, ecological degradation, and dehumanizing social hierarchies in education. In its institutional and informal configurations alike, education has been identified as perhaps the key stake in this struggle. Insisting on the urgency of an education that breaks free of the bonds of enclosure, the essays included in this volume weave together bright threads of radical thought into a vivid tapestry illustrating a critical framework for enacting a global educational commons.

Reviews

“This is a rich collective resource for thinking differently about education. It is the very demonstration of our cooperative powers to teach and learn from each other directly in a social experiment that escapes the enclosures of the university, the college, and the school. This collection is proof of our undiminished powers of study together.” (Stefano Harney, Professor of Strategic Management Education, Singapore Management University)

“The editors have collated a remarkably diverse range of contributions all pointing at the struggles against education enclosures, and the powers of educational commons. The proponents of the ‘edufactory’ are finally finding its critical nemesis.” (Massimo De Angelis, Professor of Political Economy, University of East London, UK)
