“One of the gravest obstacles to the achievement of liberation is that oppressive reality absorbs those within it and thereby acts to submerge human beings’ consciousness. Functionally, oppression is domesticating. To no longer prey to its force, one must emerge from it and turn upon it. This can be done only by means of the PRAXIS: reflection and action upon the world in order to transform it.”
– Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed
The mission of PRAXIS, the blog of the Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs, is to provide an accessible arena in which higher education constituents and stakeholders can reflect on events, issues, and concerns in our communities and promote intentional, meaningful action in support of social justice on campus and beyond.
