The Contemporary Journal is the digital strand of the Public Programmes and Research department at Nottingham Contemporary, which is responsible for the journal content.
Critical Pedagogies issue investigates contemporary pedagogies and explores questions about how we learn and produce knowledge collectively. Given the current scenario in education, with the implementation of student fees and the disinvestment in cultural education in primary and secondary levels, Critical Pedagogies explores the educational role of cultural organisations and rehearses new forums for critical thinking and practice. Until June 2020, Nottingham Contemporary invites colleagues and audiences to participate in this ongoing inquiry. This inquiry includes CAMPUS, a yearlong and city-wide independent study programme; monthly talks (CAMPUS Talks); an international conference (November 2019); and The Contemporary Journal issue.
