The Crisis of Meaning in Culture and Education. Pedagogy and Cultural Practice.
Investigating what is viewed as an inseparable link between culture and politics, this book analyzes how many notions of patriotism, citizenship, community, and family are communicated within specific public and private institutions. The volume extends the meaning and purpose of pedagogy as a cultural practice outside the classroom, focusing on political activism in education, the mass media, and the art world. The chapters in volume 3 are: (1) "The Crisis of Meaning in Culture and Education"; (2) "What's in a Name? National Identity and Media Literacy"; (3) "Ordinary People: Material Culture and the Everyday"; (4) "A Change of Address: Homelessness and the Politics of Voice"; (5) "Look Who's Talking: Contested Narratives of Family Life";(6) "Read My Lips: Bureaucratic Rhetoric and Narrative Authority"; (7) "The Color of Money: Cultural Policy and the Public Interest"; (8) "Rethinking Media Activism: Why the Left Is Losing the Culture War"; and (9) "Pedagogy and Ethics: Notes for a Radical Democracy."
