Lucio-Villegas, Emilio; García Goncet, Daniel; Cowe, Louise – Studies in the Education of Adults, 2016
To reflect on education and citizenship, we have selected a singular experience related to the fight for housing. In this specific case, the struggle is linked to an endeavour for maintaining traditional ways of life in the place where people were born and raised. Our theoretical framework is related to several authors, such as Freire, Gramsci,…

This writing critiques the idea that literacies education can and should empower adult learners. The ideas of Pierre Bourdieu and James Paul Gee are analysed with reference to how power and empowerment are understood and what this means for the concrete practice of adult literacies education by educators and students.

Jarvis, Peter – Studies in the Education of Adults, 2015
Building on Polanyi's insight in "The Tacit Dimension" that we know more than we can tell, this paper argues that we need to extend our understanding of learning to incorporate implicit learning, which is necessary in order to understand the process of becoming an expert and in so doing it points to the need to expand the theories of…

Community-supported agriculture (CSA) began as a loosely formalised, vaguely socialistic agreement between consumers and farmers through which the consumers were provided with fresh produce from the farms.
