GUTIERREZ GALLARDO, Nadia P.; FREGOSO CENTENO, Anayanci  and  RUIZ JIMENEZ, Lilia Lucila Guadalupe. Pedagogical practices in prison. Practitioner reflections, experiences and networks. Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2023, vol.44, n.176, pp.6-19.  Epub Jan 19, 2024. ISSN 2448-7554.

The essay we present in various voices aims to develop a profound ponder that reflects our journey through prisons as higher education teachers. Among our intentions is to systematize the pedagogical practice that we carry out based on the fact that we are not part of a penitentiary-reintegration pedagogy, which is why we are interested in exposing our teaching position from a critical approach towards the penitentiary system and its insistence on overshadowing everything that seeks to subvert or escape punishment as a notion that regulates and constrains subjectivity.

Against the grain, we maintain that Education in Contexts of Punitive Confinement promotes spaces for dialogue that open processes of human dignity, recognizing subjects beyond the figure of the criminal. This is how we consider it relevant to analyze our teaching experience in prison, highlighting that it is part of a collaborative process where ethical and political positions also promote questioning the paradoxes entailed by the aspiration to make the right to education effective in confinement.

Keywords : Pedagogical Practices; Pedagogy of the encounter; Prison; Education; Experience.
