Free University London Workshop

7 June 2020


Venue: Mayday Rooms [online location]

Organiser: Louis Free University London

Free University London puts on university-level classes for free. Our courses cover topics from philosophy, politics, architecture, literature, art, artificial intelligence and other fields. We try to create democratic educational experiences away from the marketisation of education.

To celebrate our fist year, we have joined the AntiUniversity community for their annual festival. This Sunday, 11am-1pm, we will be putting on a workshop on the topic of education. Some FUL tutors and students will get together (online) to discuss personal and philosophical approaches to knowledge and education. The workshop will take the format of a Q&A with the tutors, where students will be able to ask them questions. In the second hour, we will open the conversation to all participants.

Some questions we will address are:

What is knowledge?

What is the relationship between knowledge and the university?

What are the relations between power, knowledge, and the institution?

How have they charted their own paths through academia?

Why did they join FUL?

What is different about the Free University London?

How can we do knowledge differently?
