McDowell, James (2010) Anarchy in the Universities: Beyond the Student-Teacher Hierarchy. In: Learning Futures Festival 2010, 7th-14th January 2010, University of Leicester.

This paper examines how the central tenets of much of the thinking of key contemporary educational theorists such as Lave, Wenger and Schön found earlier expression in the work of anarchist philosophers such as Bakunin, Proudhon, and Illich. Three principles of an anarchist philosophy of education for the twenty-first century are derived, and an argument developed that learning from the learners requires the collapse of the student-teacher hierarchy.
