Teaching about the media and popular culture has been a major
concern for radical educators. Yet in recent years, the hyperbolic
rhetoric of "critical pedagogy" has come under attack, not only
from theoretical perspectives such as feminism, anti-racism and
postmodernism, but also in The Light Of Actual Classroom
Experience. The Notion That Teachers Might "liberate" students
through rationalistic forms of ideological critique has been
increasingly questioned, not only on the grounds of its political
arrogance, but also because of its ineffectiveness in practice.
This book seeks to move beyond the limitations of these debates,
and to explore positive alternatives. It contains a broad
international range of contributions, covering practice from
primary schools right through to higher education. The authors draw
on diverse perspectives, including poststructuralism,
postmodernism, cultural studies, anti-racism and feminism; yet they
share a willingness to challenge radical orthodoxies, and to offer
positive practical alternatives.
