Description

A variety of educational and broader cultural and political questions are addressed in this book, such as: What are educational practices about? Where do "schooling" and "learning" take place? What is critical pedagogy? In posing these questions, the author argues that pedagogy is central to any struggle for democracy and that cultural workers must address with specificity the context in which people translate private concerns into public issues. Hernandez connects forms of learning, knowledge production, and subjectivity formation to processes of both personal and social transformation. She offers her own experience with the Argentine Mother's Movement as a case study in feminist intellectual alignment with cultural workers.
