EDUCATION IN THE MINOR KEY 

This talk, part of a manuscript on Anthropology and/as Education, has been inspired by a new book by Erin Manning, entitled The Minor Gesture. The minor is the key of unsettlement, of differentiation and of world-forming. How can we use it to challenge the hegemonic force of the major, in which are enshrined the founding principles of progressive education? What are the implications of this challenge for the way we think about study and the school, teaching and learning, and the freedoms they both depend upon and exemplify?
