    This chapter is concerned with questions of pedagogy and power as they are played out in the context of Cultural Studies taught within an Adult Education (AE) programme across several European countries.

One of the two-week modules, representing a fifth of the programme as a whole, is 'Intercultural Relations in Europe and AE. This subject provides an excellent mirror for reflection about both the power and solidarity claims made by Cultural Studies and the power and solidarity claims that operate in the processes of knowledge production and teaching/learning of Cultural Studies. In the distorting mirrors, stereotypes such as the 'flamenco gypsy' deformed the image of Spanish culture.
