Aims & Scope

The mission of the Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed Journal is to create a scholarly and community-based space for critical dialogue about oppression and liberation, and to foster collaborative connections that share, develop, promote, and document how transformative theory (including, but not limited to, Pedagogy of the Oppressed and Theatre of the Oppressed) can affect social change locally and globally. The journal is dedicated to unveiling the lived experiences of communities we belong to and interact with, and struggling against systemic oppression in the pursuit of freedom.
