Francisco Ferrer and the rationalist school movement

Francisco Ferrer was murdered 1909. His execution was the spark that created a libertarian-socialist school movement unparalleled in the history of the labor movement. The lecture tries to give a critical look at Ferrer's life, the Escuela Moderna, its importance for the CNT:s and the school during the civil war in 1930:s Spain, as well as in other countries where schools inspired by Ferrer were created.
The lecture is based on a bachelor's thesis in Danish 'Anarchist Pedagogics - Free Mind and Rationality' from Jan. 2012. The lecture will be held in English as much as possible, but Danish will be spoken.
The presenter works daily in a kindergarten, is an activist for Den Kritisk Pædagogiske Højskole and at Bogcaféen Halmtorvet in Cph.
The lecture is presented in cooperation with Arbetarnas bildningsförbund, ABF, and Bogcaféen Halmtorvet.
