Bringing together scholars from the fields of cultural studies and critical pedagogy for the first time, "Between Borders" is an attempt to strengthen the links between critical pedagogy and cultural practice. Informed by the belief that critical pedagogy must move beyond the classroom if it is to be truly effective, this collection of essays makes clear how cultural practices--as portrayed in film, in sports, and in the classroom itself--enable cultural studies to deepen its own political possibilities and construct diverse geographies of identity, representation and place.
The text is organized around three interconnecting themes: the relationship between pedagogy and media literacy; the intersection of critical pedagogy with issues concerning postmodernism, race, the politics of desire, and postcolonialism; and the question of representation with respect to the relationship between popular culture, the arts, and the state. "Between Borders" provides a much needed "third space" for cultural workers to engage the connection between pedagogy and cultural studies while simultaneously offering an analysis of feminist, gay/lesbian, postcolonial, and identity issues that have been too often ignored as both pedagogical and political considerations.
Contributors: Henry A. Giroux, Ava Collins, Nancy Fraser, Carol Becker, bell hooks, Michael Eric Dyson, Roger I. Simon, Chandra T. Mohanty, Simon Watney, Michele Wallace, Peter McLaren, David Trend, Abdul R. JanMohamed and Kenneth Mostern.

Industry Reviews

"The conception of "Between Borders is a prime example of praxis in action. Giroux and Peter McLaren participate as editors in an effort to open up a space in which different voices, ones that have dramatically influenced these authors' own work, are able to represent themselves. . . Those interested in the relationship between pedagogy and cultural studies are well served by Larry Grossberg's excellent introduction to the book." -Pepi Leistyna, "Harvard Educational Review
