of the human situation and to claim autonomous power. The result of this is vio- lence (Cain and Abel) and idolatry (the Tower of Babel). The Genesis narrative func- tions either as a normative description of the human condition before God and a critical principle against any power that distorts or usurps the dignity of humanity or God’s claim over men and women.10 These revelations help one to understand another important dimension of Israel’s life where the issues of social justice take center stage in the Old Testament, namely, the question of the jubilee

How the Dreamers Are Born

Struggles for Social Justice and the Identity Construction of Activist Educators in Brazil

Julio Diniz Pereira

This book discusses the identity construction of activist educators or, as one of the research participants poetically summarizes it, «how the dreamers are born.» The dreamers, in the case of this research, are eleven women, activist educators who have participated in the Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (Landless Workers’ Movement), the MST. This book explores how the development of one’s identity as an activist educator is a long and complex social, political, and cultural process involving many causal elements.
The MST, one of the largest social movements in contemporary Latin America and one of the most successful grassroots movements in the world, has struggled for agrarian reform as well as social and economic justice in Brazil, achieving impressive results. Its members include people from some of the poorest segments of Brazilian society. This book presents a powerful analysis of their incredible life stories (testimonios), collected through semi-structured interviews with women educators, seeking to uncover the main elements that account for the development of their identities as activist educators. Finally, the book addresses the implications of its research findings for social justice teacher education.

Rough Justice

Young People in the Shadows

Trevor Gale

Even in an age of economic prosperity, there are young people who live on the edge of western societies and who are held accountable for their every indiscretion, sometimes even for those of others. This book employs a sociological imagination to make connections between the public issues and private troubles of youth living on the street. The narrative is pedagogical in intent, seeking to make sense of seemingly antisocial behavior, understood in the context of broader social, political, and economic concerns. In particular, it speaks to the «helping» professions of education, law, social work, nursing, psychology, and medicine.

. Symbols confer “an initial readability” on action and “a texture of interpretants” that make the transition to narrative possible. 63 He asserts that every action can always be read as text. “In so far as the symbols, understood as interpretants, provide the rules of meaning as a function of which this or that behaviour can be interpreted.” 64 Situating actions in a framework of symbolic mediation leads Ricoeur to incorporate individual experience under a social context. He argues that meaningful actions are always “rule governed behaviour”; such cultural codes “give
