These texts are selected to provide a basic understandingand overview about the theory and practice of popular education and participatory research. We selected texts that we believed would be easy to locate atmost university libraries or online, and tried to balance “classics” withmore recent texts.

Obviously, this list is not exhaustive, and is intended to provide a brief introduction to the topics of popular education and participatory research. We are open to your suggestions too! Please send your ideas for additions/deletions to cpepr@uclink.berkeley.edu.
We hope that the texts here will whet your appetite andinspire further investigation of Popular Education. Popular education embraces a particular set of principles and beliefs about education to promote critical consciousness and collective action for social change. The books listed here address the following kinds of questions:

  • What is popular education?
  • What has been the historical role and importance of popular education in critical social movements?
  • What are the theoretical foundations of popular education as a theory of change?

Participatory Research.

Participatory research is an alternative paradigm of knowledge production, not simply a more participatory method. The texts listed here address the following kinds of questions:

  • How and why can well-intentioned research end up reproducing the same inequalities it intends to change?
  • What is participatory research?
  • How and why is participatory research from traditional research?
  • What are the challenges, contradictions and dangers of engaging in participatory action research?
