Radically Democratic Learning in the Grounded In-Between
Hart, Mechthild
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n128 p37-45 Win 2010
The author describes how the political struggles of immigrant domestic workers challenge the destructive logic of a global capitalist patriarchy. She uses her involvement in the political struggles of immigrant domestic workers as the foundation of both a critique of the destructive logic of global capitalist relations as well as a description of actual and possible learning processes that challenge this logic, and that begin replacing it with a different, life-affirming one. She offers a theory of radically democratic learning centered on a collective sense of being-in-relation, and therefore of assuming responsibility for protecting life and its conditions.
