Creating Third Spaces of Learning for Post-Capitalism: Lessons from Educators, Artists and Activists
Carol Anne Spreen
Current Issues in Comparative Education, v25 n2 p108-113 2023
The book, "Creating Third Spaces of Learning for Post-Capitalism: Lessons from Educators, Artists and Activists" seeks to explore counter-hegemonic social spaces, or what some call third spaces (Anzaldua, 1987/2021; Bhabha, 1994/2002; Soja, 1996) that have been created largely by social, community and artistic activists to prefigure a post-capitalist, multi-racial democracy. Third spaces are ideally sensitive to the ways that various forms of oppression are intersectional. This means that if they prefigure a post-capitalist society, then they must also strive to be post-patriarchal, post-racist, post-homophobic and transphobic, as well as raising awareness about the global environmental crisis. While many groups foregrounded issues of race, ethnicity and class, they also integrated programs to raise awareness around gender, disability, and sexual orientation. In this article, Carol Anne Spreen describes her study on third spaces, including the characteristics they commonly share.
