Offering theoretical and practical knowledge to help critical adult
educators in their attempts to enact critical pedagogy in their own
classroom, this volume explores critical theory, feminism, critical
postmodernism, Africentrism, queer theory, and cultural studies.
Picking up on the themes first raised by Elizabeth Ellsworth,
critical theory and classic critical pedagogy do not get a
particularly easy ride. None of the authors claims that critical
approaches are a simple solution to the tangles of late modernity.
In every case the authors see critical pedagogy as complex,
insightful, challenging, limited, and difficult to put into
practice. But in every case, they see critical perspectives as
offering the hope and potential of a more just world.
The idea that critical perspectives on teaching are difficult to
enact in the classroom is not new. And what do we mean by critical
perspectives anyway? In this volume some of the most exciting
scholars in adult education--whether established or
emerging--provide insights into what it means to be critical and
how it affects the concrete practices of teaching adults.
This is the 102nd issue of the quarterly higher education report
"New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education."
