Public Pedagogy and Political Theory: from Marx and Engels to anti-racist feminist ecosocialism

Public pedagogy is an important corrective to any notion that pedagogy takes place only in conventional educational settings. It takes place in museums, zoos and libraries, as well as informal educational sites like popular culture, commercial spaces and the media, including of course, social media. It also occurs through figures and sites of activism, including public intellectuals and grassroots social movements. It is also a widely used medium in the speeches, tweets and interviews of politicians and other public figures, and in podcasts and video lectures as well as online conferences, blogs, articles and books. While the parameters of the concept of public pedagogy are wide-ranging, traditionally the overwhelming focus of most historical and current public pedagogy theorists has been on the promotion of social justice for all. Public pedagogy analysis can be progressive or reactionary. In this lecture, Mike Cole focuses on applying public pedagogy to Marxism, including wider political theory and practice relating to contemporary capitalism and planetary destruction; activism for climate change emergency; and the case for ecosocialism that is feminist and antiracist.
