Canadian Adult Education Research in the 1990s: Tracing Liberatory Trends
This article provides a view of the extent to which liberatory themes were evident in Canadian adult education research in the 1990s. Independent analyses of journal articles, conference proceedings, and graduate thesis abstracts were undertaken. Bringing these three data sets together creates a unique montage, one that points to some encouraging as well as disturbing trends. The review indicates that liberatory themes were persistent, but marginal. It also notes the lack of attention given to the analysis of race, class and sexuality in adult education research. This tracing of liberatory trends can contribute to dialogue within research organizations and graduate programs about the role of adult education research in creating knowledge and promoting a more just and equitable society.Résumé
Cet article se penche sur l'importance des thèmes de la libération dans la formation permanente au Canada au cours des années 1990. Articles de journaux spécialisés, travaux de congrès et résumés de thesès universitaires ont fait l'objet d'analyses indépendantes. La mise en commun de ces trois ensembles de données cree un assemblage unique qui met en relief certaines tendances, tantôt encourageantes, tantôt inquiétantes. La recension des écrits démontre que les thèmes de la libération ont persisté tout en restant marginaux. Elle souligne également le manque de réflexion concernant les questions de race, de classe et de sexualité dans la recherche en formation permanente. Ce relevé des tendances dans les thèmes de la libération est susceptible de favoriser, au sein des organismes de recherche et des programmes d'études supérieures, le dialogue autour du rôle que joue la recherche en formation permanente dans le développement de nouvelles connaissances et dans la promotion d'une société plus juste.
