Where Have All the Public Intellectuals Gone? Racial Politics, Pedagogy, and Disposable Youth.
Giroux, Henry A.
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v17 n2 p191-205 1997
Discusses the cultural effects of "incessant and insidious attacks waged by conservative public intellectuals on poor and black youth in the United States." Suggests that educators need to understand how concepts like "youth" and "race" work in different political and pedagogical discourses. Calls for a performative pedagogy to affirm the critical but refuse the cynical. (RS)
