Affect and/as Collective Resistance in a Post-Truth Moment
Castro Samayoa, Andrés; Nicolazzo, Z
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p988-993 2017
In this piece, we call upon the value of coalitional politics as a strategy of resistance in the face of an increasingly powerful post-truth regime. Reflecting on the insidious effects of fact-denying discourses are echoed in our classrooms and in our roles as educators, we openly wonder: What might it mean for educators to use feelings as a guide for educational praxis? We turn toward animating possibilities for what we are calling an "affect of collectivity," or communal feelings of solidarity through which we can create microclimates of love and support and, as a result, find the strength and space to persist, thrive, and live amidst the rubble of the current post-truth regime.
