Towards a Transversal Pedagogy
Florian Malzacher, Ahmet Ögüt & Pelin Tan (Eds.)
Initiated by conceptual artist Ahmet Ögüt in 2012 as an autonomous educational platform for migrant academics, researchers and lecturers whose credentials would not otherwise be recognized, The Silent University includes branches in Amman, Athens, Hamburg, London, Mulheim/Ruhr and Stockholm. The second book from Sternberg on alternative learning centers, this comprehensive reader situates this much-needed educational initiative within the wider framework of migration policies, critical pedagogy, institutional engagement and socially engaged art projects. Including lectures, student statements and descriptions of the achievements and struggles of its current branches, it also serves as introduction for anyone wanting to be involved in the Silent University as contributors, lecturers, students in the existing branches, or by initiating new SUs: a need which is becoming urgent in more and more cities and countries all around the world. With contributions by Florian Malzacher, María do Mar Castro Varela, Chantal Mouffe, Ahmet Ögüt, Rubia Salgado and Pelin Tan.
