Critical literacy and critical reading - an open discussion session using something similar to the OSDE format, looking at whether we as activists have attained "critical literacy", and what impact it has on our activities whether we have or not. Topics for discussion could include the relationship between critical literacy and indigenous perspectives, tacit knowledge, hidden transcripts, working-class culture, colonialism / epistemological privilege, and the ways people go about doing "outreach" or interacting with others. Optionally, the article "Give Up Activism" could also be used as a stimulus in this session. More here: Adopted by Andy R unless someone else volunteers
