In this creative article, the reader is invited into an a/r/tographic chronotope, through which the author remembers her learning and schooling experiences in the Ukrainian USSR. The purpose of remembering is to render an elusive meaning of dialogic pedagogy in the soviet compulsory schooling with a focus on the child’s lived experience of learning in the historical context of intergenerational socialist oppression. The visual and poetic a/r/tography reveals the learner’s ideological becoming through her rare encounters with dialogic pedagogy as the ontological event of self-consciousness, creative authorship, and agency.
