Power/knowledge/pedagogy by Dennis L. Carlson

Book Description

The essays in this volume explore the educational implications of unsettling shifts in contemporary culture associated with postmodernism. These shifts include the fragmentation of established power blocs, the emergence of a politics of identity, growing inequalities between the haves and the have-nots in a new global economy, and the rise in influence of popular culture in defining who we are. In the academy, postmodernism has been associated with the emergence of new theoretical perspectives that are unsettling the way we think about education. These shifts, the authors suggest, are deeply contradictory and may lead in divergent political directions--some of them quite dangerous. Power/Knowledge/Pedagogy examines these issues with regard to four broad domains of educational inquiry: state educational policy and curriculum reform, student identity formation, the curriculum as a text, and critical pedagogy. The book contributes to the dialogue on the forging of a new commonsense discourse on democratic educational renewal, attuned to the changing times in which we live.

Books By Author Dennis L. Carlson

Promises to Keep by Dennis L. Carlson Promises to Keep, Hardback (May 2003)

For all of its promise, public education in the twentieth century never lived up to its democratic potential. This book takes a serious look at the slow erosion of the fuller democratic meaning of a public education and a public life.

Leaving Safe Harbors by Dennis L. Carlson Leaving Safe Harbors, Paperback (November 2002)

To rise to the challenges of postmodern culture, this work argues, progressivism will need to leave the safe harbours of what is familiar and comfortable. A new progressivism can only be forged of a fundamental re-thinking and re-mythologizing of democratic education.
