‘Inclusive Practice: Rhetoric or Reality?’


On the 7th February 2008 I attended a free half day seminar backed by the HEA at Sheffield Hallam University.  On the subject of ‘Inclusive Practice: Rhetoric or Reality?’ this was the first time I’ve had the chance to hear Professor Dan Goodley, the keynote speaker.  Goodley focused specifically on emancipatory pedagogies and the limits of mainstream notions of ‘inclusion’.  This was a healthy reminder to look again at the writing of Frantz Fanton and Paulo Freire and consider the meaning of Inclusion, a word that has contrary implications.  Future events in this series take place around the UK and are cited on the HEA website. The series appears to offer a useful way in to strands of disability research in Higher Education that are otherwise difficult to bring together.
