The Café com Paulo Freire series the academic year 2022-2023 is built upon and highlights authors from anthology Transformative Research and Higher Education, edited by Azril Bacal, summarized here:

The aim in this book is to contribute to the contemporary efforts to replace the hegemonic neoliberal university with an alternative collaborative academic system. This alternative approach to university life and knowledge democracy is already under construction. The authors of this anthology join in this respect an emerging global network of concerned scholars, who are currently engaged in dialogue with civil society and social movements. In arguing for the transformation of research and education, this book provides concrete examples of creativity, innovativeness and knowledge democracy in this endeavour. This paradigmatic shift is called for against the backdrop of a generalized global crisis. The authors seek in this context to enhance the agenda, curricula and debate on how a transformed university might help in the construction of another possible post-pandemic world built on premises of justice and peace. This book shares pertinent insights from classical authors like Dorothy Lee, Paulo Freire and Orlando Fals-Borda, with up-to-date innovative practices in research and higher education.Transformative Research and Higher Education, edited by Roij, Azril Bacal, Emerald Publishing Limited, 2022
