FAC Research is a labour of love three years in the making.
We want to find collective solutions to problems and burdens that, under capitalism, we bear individually, such as unemployment, exploitation, harassment, and social exclusion.
We want to practice what we are trained to do, and what we love doing, but there is no other possibility open to us.
We want to undertake research that breaks with hegemonic narratives, methodologies, and boundaries.
We’re tired of antagonism, nepotism, authoritarianism, and paternalism as the taken-for-granted atmosphere of teaching and learning in the education system.
We want to combat discrimination and systemic barriers based on status, racialisation, language, gender identity and expression, sexuality, ability, and class.
We want to know what avenues for social change are opened up when we legitimise knowledge from below that goes unrecognised, undocumented, and disvalued…
