Revisiting Paulo Freire
In this episode, Dr. Martha Montero-Sieburth and Domiziana Turcatti revisit the most salient work and legacy of Brazilian educator and Philosopher, Paulo Freire.
"The eminent Brazilian educator Paulo Freire has influenced and motivated generations of scholars. A profound philosopher and critical thinker, he has had a particular impact on my academic career which I share by way of this podcast. Having read Freire during my undergraduate studies, I was delighted to meet him personally, first as a budding scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, during the mid 1980's and as a more-seasoned professor at the University of Massachusetts-Boston a decade later. Not only did his vision influence my teaching, writing and research, his keen theoretical and methodological insights inspired me to focus on community ethnography, which has become my lifelong passion. Now, 50 years after the publication of his Pedagogy of the Oppressed and 23 years after his death, we need to revisit his teachings and actualize his dream of hope in perpetuating his ideals for “democratic education.”" - Dr. Martha Montero-Sieburth
Love Without Frontiers: Intercultural Relationships

This, together with the most interesting points of their studies, highlight the fascinating reality of intercultural relationships: diversity in a couple can be a challenge, but with the right tools, it can be a very enriching experience.
