Education in Hope

Critical Pedagogies and the Ethic of Care


Tony Monchinski

This book explores the relationship between critical pedagogies and an ethic of care. The critical pedagogies of John Dewey, Paulo Freire, and scholars/activists in the field of feminist pedagogy are shown to reflect an ethic of care. In clarifying this relationship, Education in Hope uncovers and challenges the dominant ethical models underlying contemporary educational paradigms

Carmel Borg and Peter Mayo

Against a backdrop of a hegemonic, global economic arrangement that has spawned astounding disparities in wealth, this book foregrounds seventeen intellectuals who are engaged in resisting corporate values and in promoting social justice and human dignity. Ranging from socially engaged professors with a track record in grassroots involvement to popular educators, the interviewees challenge the manufactured consent produced by armies of intellectuals organic to dominant ideologies. Public Intellectuals, Radical Democracy and Social Movements reminds us that strategic silence and/or indifference reproduces a common sense arrangement where critical «reading of the world» (Freire, 1987) is relegated to the periphery.

Nancy Gore, Susan Hartley and Rachel Purpel

David E. Purpel is one of the most important theorists writing about education today. In this new collection of works, we are given intimate views of his perspectives on topics ranging from social justice and education to service learning. However, Purpel does far more than analyze issues. Beneath the polished surface of his writing lies a powerful, moral voice that engages readers and challenges them to question their basic assumptions about modern education and our society. His writing evokes a disturbingly emotional, as well as intellectual, response. To read these essays is to be brought into the same world of Kozol and Freire, but through a different door.

Pedagogy of Insurrection

From Resurrection to Revolution


Peter McLaren

«Pedagogy of Insurrection» by Peter McLaren has won the American Educational Research Association, Division B Outstanding Book Recognition Award 2016.

Peter McLaren, named Outstanding Educator in America by the Association of Educators of Latin America and the Caribbean in 2013 and winner of numerous awards for his scholarship and international political activism, has penned another classic work with Pedagogy of Insurrection. One of the educators that Ana Maria (Nita) Araújo Freire credits as an architect of what has come to be known worldwide as critical pedagogy, and who Paulo Freire named his ‘intellectual cousin,’ McLaren has consistently produced iconoclastic work that has been heralded by educators worldwide as among some of the most significant commentary on the state of education. He is Honorary President of the Instituto McLaren de Pedagogía Crítica y Educación Popular in Ensenada, México, and Honorary Director of the Center for Critical Pedagogy Research at Northeast Normal University in China.

A Composition of Consciousness

Roads of Reflection from Freire and Elbow

Patricia H. Perry

The premise of this book is that teachers of writing will never make any significant strides in the teaching and learning of writing until pervasive, inhibiting, and misinformed views about writing are transformed in the consciousness of people from the home and classroom to the office and boardroom. Dr. Perry delves into the nature of consciousness, the epistemologies of predominant teaching approaches, and some heretofore undervalued phenomenological foundations and similarities between the pedagogies and praxes of Paulo Freire and Peter Elbow. As a way to begin to address the continuing writing crisis, Dr. Perry proposes a teaching approach – «a composition of consciousness» – that targets and transforms inhibiting views about writing and promotes the creation of productive writing knowledge.

Ninety-five Languages and Seven Forms of Intelligence

Education in the Twenty-First Century

D. Emily Hicks

Classrooms of the future will be multicultural classrooms. Ninety-five Languages and Seven Forms of Intelligence uses a multidimensional approach to examine the relationship between multicultural classrooms and border cities in the postmodern era. D. Emily Hicks argues that the diverse nature of the students in classrooms of the next century demand that we rethink the notions of community, citizenship, and the state. Drawing on the work of Paolo Freire, Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari, and Antonio Negri, while using literary examples of Chicano/a literature, this text bridges the fields of pedagogical theory and cultural studies.

Wo liegt Afrika?

Pädagogisch-anthropologische Grundpositionen zum Nord-Süd-Dialog- Mit einem Vorwort von Peter Graf

Peter Stöger

Wo liegt Afrika? «In uns», so Thomas Browne (1643). Das Buch behandelt das Thema Nord-Süd aus pädagogisch-anthropologischer Sicht; das Augenmerk gilt den dahinterliegenden Welt- und Menschenbildern. Es weist auf Widersprüche: hier die Globalisierung, dort die eine Welt. Entwicklung, Eurozentrik und das koloniale Prinzip Trennung und Parzellierung sind zentral gerückt. Gleichfalls geht es um die Darstellung wie mit Anderen verfahren wird. Das Femde scheint sich als kolonial verwaltetes Ureigenes zu entpuppen.
Ziel ist es, den Nord-Süd-Dialog für Humanwissenschaften, auch im Lichte des interkulturellen Lernens, der Werteerziehung und des interreligiösen Dialogs, fruchtbar zu machen. Dazu gehört, manche Denkstrukturen als Spiegel von kolonialer Bildungsgeschichte durchschauen zu lernen. Ausführlich kommen dialogpädagogische Brückenbauer (zum Beispiel Paulo Freire und Václav Havel) zu Wort.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau on Adult Education and Revolution

Paradigma of Radical, Pedagogical Thought

Frederick W. Dame

This book is applicable to every country's education system: from rich, post-industrial USA, Europe, and Asia to poor, developing Middle and South America, Africa, and Asia; from republican-democracies to totalitarian states. The author has researched, analyzed, and interpreted Rousseau's educational philosophy from Emile, Du Contrat Social, Discours sur l'Inégalité, etc., and applied it to the areas of adult education and revolution, this being the first time they have been connected by Rousseau's theories. Radical educators (Meiklejohn, Illich, Freire) are presented as modern Rousseaus. The important roles of programs, family, and State are discussed. The contents are controversial, penetrative, caustic, thought-provoking. All those politically interested and involved, from adult educators to Zeitgeist politicians, should read Jean-Jacques Rousseau on Adult Education and Revolution.
