Teaching Joe L. Kincheloe


Rochelle Brock, Curry Stephenson Mallott and Leila E. Villaverde

Teaching Joe L. Kincheloe is one of a handful of recent books posthumously moving Kincheloe’s work further into the twenty-first century. Written and edited by Kincheloe’s former students and colleagues, the book underscores the depth and breadth of his extraordinarily productive career. In an era marked by the ruling elite’s desperation as U.S. power wanes globally, this work opens up transformative ways of seeing conducive to challenging the technocratic, imperialistic purpose of the dominant forms of education. Kincheloe would surely have been pleased to see this – among his many postformal contributions – counter-hegemonically providing critical pedagogy with the theoretical and practical strength to contribute to the global uprising currently challenging the imperialist project of wealth extraction and cultural domination around the world. Teaching Joe L. Kincheloe will only gain relevance as the global movement against authoritarianism intensifies and citizens search for new ways to better understand their worlds and the historical development of their own identities.
