Decentering the Ivory Tower: A University of the Poor
Selvaraj, Shivaani A.
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n139 p25-34 Aut 2013
This article traces the author's personal reflections on the complexity and contradictions inherent in working for social change. She describes her experiences of movement-based learning and organizing to end poverty in the United States, concluding that radical adult educators cannot afford to be based solely within the academy, divorced from spaces that rest on a love of learning for the purpose of liberation.
