Abstract

In this paper, taken from a fuller discussion in my Doctoral Thesis
carried out under a bricolage methodology, I will argue, utilising the
fictive and imaginative elements of bricolage, that there are
possibilities to engender a popular education through several sites
of learning: a social movement (Occupy London), a cooperative
higher learning provider (The Social Science Centre) and a
reorganised University (The University of Lincoln, Student as
Producer). I will also discuss, through the use of generative
themes, the possibilities of creating nurture and support networks
between these sites by understanding their organisational potential
and their pedagogical structures. I will attempt to imagine a cyclic
trajectory of solidarity and support between them in order to
engender a more popular education in all the sites that allows for
emancipation from the enclosure of neoliberalised social relations
and the fundamental transformation of sociality and social
organisation. The paper concludes that there is potential for not
only convivial relations between these three layers of pedagogical
interaction, but also the potential to create an action research-type
cycle on a grand solidarisitic scale.
