Becoming through Revolutionary Pedagogy: An Interview with Curry Malott and Derek R. Ford
Wubbena, Zane C.
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v14 n1 p1-16 Mar 2016
In this interview, Curry Malott and Derek R. Ford discuss their new book, "Marx, Capital, and Education: Towards a Critical Pedagogy of Becoming." The interview begins with a general inquiry into their intellectual backgrounds as scholar-activists and, importantly, comrades. The authors then discuss the process of collaborating together on the book itself and its content. In writing the book, the authors were "particularly interested in the role of education in revolution" and, thus, the role of comradeship for resisting the reproduction of capitalist social relations. In this regard, the book is an intervention linking Marxist educational theory with critical pedagogy for a revolutionary critical pedagogy of becoming that reclaims the radical roots of critical pedagogy. The authors contextualize revolutionary critical pedagogy with examples from the Ferguson rebellion in the United States. Lastly, Malott and Ford share their current and future research projects.
