Additionally, Prof. Guimarães will organize an online workshop on 28th October 2020 on the topic “Is there still room for emancipatory adult learning and education? Discussing a promising idea facing several challenges” which will be announced separately via the homepage of the professorship (https://www.paedagogik.uni-wuerzburg.de/en/erwachsenenbildung) and other channels.
