Event description

Description

What is the promise of education in a 'post-truth' world?

Dr Jessica Gerrard, Senior Lecturer in Education, Equity, and Politics at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education.

Pedagogy in the Pub is a series of monthly discussions, facilitated by some of the keenest educational thinkers from Australia and abroad.

In June, the discussion will be led by Dr Jessica Gerrard, Senior Lecturer in Education, Equity, and Politics at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education. Her research examines the relationship of education to social change and politics.

Jessica is currently working on a research agenda on the ‘uneducated’ and unemployment. She is the author of the forthcoming monograph from Palgrave: Precarious Enterprise on the Margins: Work, Poverty and Homelessness in the City.

Jessica will discuss notions of being ‘educated’ and ‘uneducated’ and link this to current debates around truth and post-truth.
