A Dissident Voice

Essays on Culture, Pedagogy, and Power

by Antonia Darder (Author)
Textbook XVI, 484 Pages
Series: Counterpoints, Volume 418

Summary

This collection of essays by Antonia Darder engages a variety of political questions rooted within the contentious terrain of culture and power in the United States. Divided into seven sections that focus on biculturalism, racism, culture and schooling, language rights, Latino issues, the politics of the body, and a public pedagogy of dissent, the essays forcefully speak to the multiple ways in which the dominant culture shapes and perpetuates widespread inequalities and social exclusions, at the expense of oppressed populations. Spanning twenty years, this timely collection not only provides deeply unique political insights on important theoretical and practical concerns, but also offers the reader a historical glimpse into the literary evolution of one of the foremost radical education scholars of our time. Along with the intellectual ingenuity of her scholarly arguments, Darder beautifully weaves each section together with her poems of dissent. A Dissident Voice should be read by every student, professor, administrator and educated reader interested in alternative voices in education.
