Museums: Adult Education as Cultural Politics
Borg, Carmel; Mayo, Peter
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n127 p35-44 Fall 2010
The sites of adult education practice are multiple, and museums feature regularly among these sites (Chadwick and Stannett, 1995, 2000). This chapter explores the potential of museums as sites for critical "public pedagogy." It foregrounds the role of adult educators as co-interrogators with adult learners of what is generally perceived as politically innocent and neutral knowledge.
