With presentations from Sheila Macrine from the University of Massachusetts, United States, Inny Accioly from Fluminense Federal Universal University, Brazil, and UC PhD graduates María Carolina Nieto Ángel, Mônica Maciel Vahl and Bernadette Farrell the symposium explored critical approaches to education in times of uncertainty, from the perspective of women in the education sector.

The presentations were based on chapters from the recently published book: Critical pedagogy in uncertain times: Hope and possibilities (2nd ed.), which was edited by Sheila L. Macrine. Nieto Ángel, Maciel Vahl and Farrell contributed a chapter to the book titled: Critical pedagogy, dialogue and tolerance: A learning to disagree framework.
