Teaching Peter McLaren

Paths of Dissent


Marc Pruyn and Luis Huerta

Teaching Peter McLaren, the first volume in the Teaching Contemporary Scholars series, focuses on the work of educational scholars on the left who have made major contributions to the field. In this book, editors Marc Pruyn and Luis M. Huerta-Charles have assembled a notable group of contributors who reflect on, analyze, and critique over two decades’s worth of scholarship produced by Peter McLaren, one of the most influential and widely read leftist scholars working in academia today. Specifically, this book focuses on the nexus of education, critical theory, Marxism, globalization, and struggles for social justice via the work and theorizing of McLaren.
