Although the disciplines of critical education and cultural studies have traditionally occupied separate spaces as they have addressed different audiences, their concerns as well as the political and pedagogical nature of their work overlap. "Education and Cultural" "Studies" brings members of these two groups together to demonstrate how a critical understanding of culture and education can transgressively implement broad political change.
All written from within this framework of cultural studies and critical pedagogy, the contributors illuminate the possibilities and opportunities open to practicing educators. In eschewing a romantic utopianism, and in assessing the current climate of what is attainable and practical, this book teaches us how we can begin to translate and perhaps even transform the vexing social problems that confront us daily.
Contributors include Carol Becker, Harvey J. Kaye, David Theo Goldberg, Jeffrey Williams, Sharon Todd, Douglas Kellner, Deborah Britzman, Jacqueline Reid-Walsh, Claudia Mitchell, Cameron McCarthy, Mike Hill, Susan Searls, Stanley Aronowitz, Douglas Noble, Kakie Urch, Henry Giroux, David Trend, and Robert Mikilitsch.
