Product description

This book maintains that there has not been sufficient dialogue and cross-fertilization between various forms of critical approaches to education, notably multicultural/anti-racist education, feminist pedagogy, and critical pedagogy. Contributors from Canada and the United States address educational issues relevant to aboriginal peoples, people of color, and people of religious minorities in light of feminist and critical pedagogical theory. They are sensitive and responsive to the power relations operative in a setting, and address the multiple and contradictory subjectivities of teachers and learners on the basis of race, gender, class, religion, ethnicity, age, and ability.

Review quote

?This complex and diverse collection of recent advances in multiculturalism, antiracist education, and critical pedagogy for students and teachers opens a dialogue between scholars and educators about how minority perspectives can challenge and inform educational practices....The collection is an important contribution to interrogation and debate in contemporary education.?-MultiCultural Review
