This chapter extends a consideration of the ‘place’ of critical pedagogical practice by contemplating, specifically, the ways that dialogue provides a foundational context for critical pedagogical engagements. The argument outlined in this chapter will suggest that it is at the moment of the pedagogical encounter – that is, at the point of dialogic interaction – that a sense of the Other finds meaning. I suggest that it is through the act of engaging the Other that a space in-between educator and educand opens as a site of critical interrogation and interactivity. This is a space traversed by dialogue, and via the shared interaction that dialogue enables, the figuration of an inter-relationality borne of- the-moment materialises. Dialogue provides the terrain upon which this shared moment of encounter finds activation and purpose.
