A Decolonizing Encounter: Ward Churchill and Antonia Darder in Dialogue. Counterpoints: Studies in the Postmodern Theory of Education. Volume 430
Orelus, Pierre W., Ed.
Peter Lang New York
"A Decolonizing Encounter" examines the effects of western colonialism on historically marginalized and colonized populations living both in the West and the "third world". Specifically, it explores crucial issues such as the decolonizing of schools and communities of color; the decentralization of power of the capitalist and colonial state; globalization; democracy; and struggle for political and economic justice for all peoples. This book holds appeal particularly to committed social justice educators, as well as scholars and community activists concerned with the important issues of schooling, colonization, democracy, and the right of all students to have access to quality and democratic education. Given its interdisciplinary scope, undergraduate and graduate students majoring in or interested in disciplines such as education, colonial and postcolonial studies, history, anthropology, sociology, and ethnic studies will find this book deeply relevant to their intellectual formation and scholarly interests.
