Item description for In From the Margins: Adult Education, Work and Civil Society by A. Antikainen...
The theme of the Book is written in its working title "At the Margins of Adult Education, Work and Civil Society". Rather than focusing on active participants and active participation, the objective is to scrutinize the whole adult population in terms of participation, and to pay special attention to those who are so easily left out of studies concerning adult education, learning at work or active participation in civil society. The aim of the book is to bring into the discussion the views of those who do not find attending adult education possible and who thus form a challenge for the promotion of active citizenship. In the collection of articles researchers from various disciplines and with cross-disciplinary interests in adult education and marginalisation meet and discuss with each other within and beyond their own disciplines. "In from the Margins" includes four sections: - Critical Perspectives and the Margins - Active Citizenship and Participation - Adult Learners in Different Contexts - Challenging Digital Divide. Contributors are an international group of prominent and young scholars from Europe, Africa, America, Asia and Australia met at the University of Joensuu, Finland.
