Chapter 4: Sentipensante: feeling–thinking pedagogy: community-based research and teaching
The approach of the chapter is rooted in social theory and praxis from Latin America – mainly on the participatory action research in social theory of Orlando Fals Borda (Colombia) and Paulo Freire’s (Brazil) pedagogical approach to service learning. In this view, universities have to build bridges in a society of cultural diversity and have to strengthen the full exercise of citizens’ rights and justice. This can be realized through acting on local levels as a central way of implementing the educational task together with the people. Only with the support (knowledge and emotions) of those affected (by poverty, exclusion and violation of human rights) can new forms of inclusion be found. In the light of experiences in Colombia and Mexico with marginalized and displaced persons, the chapter discusses the actual refugee drama, with its challenges for universities in Germany.
