Abstract:

"Critical adult educators will find in this volume theoretical and practical knowledge to help them in their attempts to enact critical pedagogy in their own classrooms. 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."--BOOK JACKET.
