Where to start?

The essays in the category ANALYSIS are critical reflections on education. Here, we try to disentangle the problems that we encountered in our teaching practice, and their systemic underpinnings.

In the essays on TEACHING PRACTICES, we present particular applications of our mindset, and solutions to some of the problems we identify.

Some of our concepts explicitly address issues of MENTAL HEALTH and self-care; or they reframe institutionalized discourses in more mindful, holistic ways.
