Gildersleeve, Ryan Evely
Critical Questions in Education, v8 n2 spec iss p101-115 Spr 2017
This article seeks to trace the cartography of truth-telling through a posthuamanist predicament of ritual culture in higher education and critical inquiry. Ritual culture in higher education such as graduation ceremony produces and reflects the realities of becoming subjects. These spaces are proliferating grounds for truth telling and practical wisdom. Using Latino graduation ceremonies as a backdrop, the ritual transforms the Latino college student into the Latino college graduate via the ritual practice of the Latino graduation ceremony represents parrhesia in the actual process. The cartography of truth-telling illustrates how critical methodology and methodologist can engage in parrhesia.
