Join us for an in-person and livestreamed talk with Derek Ford, author of the recent publication Marxism, Pedagogy, and the General Intellect: Beyond the Knowledge Economy, who will be joined by professor Curry Stephenson Malott in discussion.
As the knowledge economy has forced questions of education to the forefront, the book engages pedagogy as an underlying yet neglected motor of capitalism and its forms of oppression. Most importantly, it assembles new pedagogical resources for responding to the range of injustices that permeate our world. Building on yet critiquing the Marxist notion of the general intellect, Derek R. Ford theorizes stupidity as a necessary alternative pedagogical logic, an anti-value that is infinitely mute and unproductive.
