#NoBanNoWall: "Borderlands Testimonios" of a Chicano and a Falestinia for an Education of Love
Khalil, Deena; Rodriguez, Cristóbal
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p1019-1026 2017
In a trumping era, White nationalism has taken center political stage in the White House and Congressional leadership, infiltrating hatred and fear in community and school spaces. Thus, there is a need for a new kind of education, one that uses Anzaldúa's "Borderlands" consciousness as an approach to practicing hooks' love ethic. This work examines the possibilities this new education philosophy may have through the "testimonios" of two Borderlands scholars who teach, research, and serve with an ethic of love. By utilizing their Borderlands consciousness and identities, the authors aim to highlight how such an educational approach can enable scholars and leaders to bridge spaces so one does not exist on one side or the other, but on all sides in order to move ourselves and other individuals with collective histories of oppression towards a more socially just space ruled by an ethic of love.
