Cathy McCormack's conversation with Dr Liam Kane

Mighty Sparrow.

Cathy’s third conversation is with Dr Liam Kane a Senior Lecturer at Glasgow University who teaches languages, adult education and also ‘popular education.’ Liam is also a leading expert on the struggle of the people in Latin America who used ‘popular educating’ as powerful weapon to overcome their poverty and oppression. They discuss the pioneering work of Brazilian Educator Paulo Freire who created ‘popular education’ and who in spite of poverty, imprisonment and exile became a world leader in the struggle for the liberation of poor and deprived communities and classes and which the people in South Africa also used to overcome their racial apartheid. Cathy then explores with Liam the relevance of ‘popular education’ for the working class communities in Scotland who as Cathy passionately believes have always been subjected to a post-war social and economic apartheid.
