This is the web-site of C.A. Bowers who is the author of one of the reading materials for Module 1. The site provides useful resources for critical pedagogy and ecological education. C.A. Bowers seems to be as a key figure in critical pedagogy. His ecological and critical thinking is suggestive of indigenous education. To my understanding of some of his articles available on this site, Bowers’ critical pedagogy is in a unique and alternative position, even within the field of (Marxism-influenced) critical pedagogy, in that his approach aims to challenge Western-orientedness existing in the tradition of critical pedagogy.
