Hate Won, but Love Will Have the Final Word: Critical Pedagogy, Liberation Theology, and the Moral Imperative of Resistance
Kirylo, James D
Policy Futures in Education, v15 n5 p590-601 Jun 2017
In the context of the recent presidential election in the United States, this article examines the place of critical pedagogy and liberation theology and its positionality in impacting the moral imperative of resisting a climate of hate and intolerance. Particularly drawing from the work of Peter McLaren, Gustavo Gutiérrez, Paulo Freire and others, the fundamental lens that drives this piece is one's commitment to truth, one which brings together the various strands of critical pedagogy and thusly can be characterized as what McLaren calls a revolutionary critical pedagogy. Within that frame, McLaren argues that a revolutionary critical pedagogy must be open to turn to the spiritual in informing its praxis, providing a foundational base of active resistance.
