Stepping Across

Four Interdisciplinary Studies of Education and Cultural Politics

Series:

Julia Eklund Koza

Stepping Across: Four Interdisciplinary Studies of Education and Cultural Politics is a collection of four studies of education, privilege, and power – each of which explores relationships between formal schooling and larger cultural contexts. Representing some of Koza’s most recent thinking, the studies examine interrelated constructs of race, gender, and social class as they materialize in local and specific settings. «No Hero of Mine: Disney, Popular Culture, and Education» (2001); «Rap Music: The Cultural Politics of Official Representation» (1994); «Unhappy Happy Endings: Cultural Politics in the Broadway Musical Hit Once on This Island» (1997, revised 2001); «To Shave or Not to Shave: The Hair Removal Imperative and Its Implications for Teachers and Teaching» (2001) comprise the collection.
