    Abstract

    Adult and community education has long survived on the periphery. This marginal status is often lamented, frequently through the much-used metaphor of "Cinderella." But it is also celebrated and enjoyed; being at the edge means that you frequently operate far from the gaze of our rulers, opening up spaces for experiment and innovation, as well as forging possibilities for new alliances and creative pedagogies. These spaces and possibilities are always bounded, of course, but they nevertheless give adult and community education an edgy quality, and allow a reworking of the balance between domesticating and emancipating practices.
