Critical Pedagogy in Uncertain Times: Hope and Possibilities. Education, Politics and Public Life
Macrine, Sheila L., Ed.
Palgrave Macmillan
This book provides comprehensive analyses of issues related to the struggle against the forces of imperial-induced privatization, not just in education, but in all of social life. It situates Critical Pedagogy in the twenty-first century and offers not only critiques but also practical applications, suggestions, and strategies on how attacks can be collectively resisted, challenged, and eradicated especially by those teaching in schools and universities. This book is divided into two parts. Part I, Uncertain Times: Exploring the Costs of Neo-Liberalism, contains the following: (1) The Attack on Higher Education and the Necessity of Critical Pedagogy (Henry Giroux); (2) The New Face of Educational Privatization: Capitalizing on Disaster (Ken Saltman); (3) Critical Pedagogy, Latina/o Education, and Class Struggle in the Age of Empire (Peter McLaren and Nathalia Jaramillo); (4) Unmasking Pre-packaged Democracy (Donaldo Macedo); and (5) A Critical Pedagogy of Hope in Times of Despair (Ramin Farahmandpur). Part II, Critical Pedagogy: A Source of Hope and Possibility, contains the following: (6) What is Critical Pedagogy Good For? An Interview with Ira Shor (Sheila Macrine); (7) Teaching as Possibility: A Light in Dark Times (Maxine Greene); (8) Imagining Justice in a Culture of Terror: Pedagogy, Politics, and Dissent (Antonia Darder); (9) Amilcar: Pedagogue of the Revolution (Paulo Freire, translated by Sheila Macrine, Fernando Naiditch, and Joao Paraskeva); (10) Toward a Critical Pedagogy of the Global (Noah De Lissovoy); and (11) Afterword (Gustavo Fischman).
