In 1909, Francisco Ferrer, the notorious Catalan anarchist educator and founder of the Modern School of Barcelona, was executed by firing squad. Ferrer navigated a tempestuous world of anarchist assassins, radical republican conspirators, anticlerical rioters, and freethinking educators to establish the legendary Escuela Moderna and the Modern School movement. Was Ferrer a ferocious revolutionary, an ardently nonviolent pedagogue, or something else entirely? Mark Bray and Robert H. Haworth will present Anarchist Education and the Modern School, a new reader of Ferrer’s writings on rationalist education, revolutionary violence, and the general strike, published by PM Press.Buy tickets/get more info now
