Critical pedagogy and predatory culture : oppositional politics in a postmodern era by Peter McLaren( )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 1,551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critical Pedagogy and Predatory Culture is a major contribution to the radical literature on culture, identity, and the politics of schooling, especially as it addresses the challenge and the promise of school and social reform through what the author calls a "critical multiculturalism." The author's approach to what he calls "predatory culture" and his exploration of recent debates over the role of public institutions and the state within such culture offers the discerning reader a unique combination of neo-Marxist and post-structuralist theory--referred to by the author as "resistance of postmodernist critique." Readers are invited to construct a politics of resistance at the level of everyday institutional life and within other public spheres. Such a politics of resistance is discussed in detail as a form of critical pedagogy which the author develops from the work of the Brazilian educator, Paulo Freire, and, in a number of geopolitical settings, the educational left, including Deleuze, Guattari, Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard and others
Paulo Freire : a critical encounter by Peter McLaren( )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paulo Freire is one of the century's great thinkers on education and the politics of liberation. Known mostly for his literacy campaigns in Latin America and Africa, and for his seminal work Pedagogy of the Oppressed, his thinking continues to be rediscovered by generations of teachers, scholars, community activists and cultural workers in Europe and North America. While his name is synonymous with the practice of Critical Literacy' and A Pedagogy of Liberation', his work has been appropiated in many diverse fields of discipline and site-based projects of social reform. This volume represents a pathfinding analysis of Freires work and in many cases it offers an extension of his thinking in order to make it more applicable to first world contexts. Peter McLaren and Peter Leonard have brought together a divergent group of scholars widely recognized for their contributions to critical theory and critical pedagogy. Themes addressed include Freier's relation to feminist critique, his philosophical roots and an evaluation of his ideas from postmodernist and postcolonialist perspectives.; The collection will be essential reading for anyone interested in the radical sociology of education and the politics of liberation

16 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Informed by the belief that critical pedagogy must move beyond the classroom if it is to be truly effective, this essay collection makes clear how cultural practices - as portrayed in film, sports, and in the classroom itself - enable cultural studies to deepen its own political possibilities and to construct diverse geographies of identity, representation and place
Critical pedagogy : where are we now? by Peter McLaren( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esencial para el profesorado que esté en activo o que vaya a estarlo, en este libro los autores debaten acerca del modo en que la pedagogía crítica debería responder a un sistema educativo en permanente estado de confusión, donde las políticas sociales y educativas sólo interesan en términos de cómo adaptarlas a las necesidades del mercado. Un mercado que nos asegura que la compasión por los pobres es una táctica desacertada porque siempre tendrá consecuencias económicas y sociales desafortunadas. Un mercado cuyas necesidades eclipsan las cuestiones morales

Revolutionary multiculturalism : pedagogies of dissent for the new millennium by Peter McLaren( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work by one of North America's leading educational theorists and cultural critics culminates a decade of social analyses that focus on the political economy of schooling, Paulo Freire and literacy education, hip-hop culture, and multicultural education. McLaren also examines the work of Baudrillard as well as Bourdieu's reflexive sociology. Always in McLaren's work is a profound understanding of the relationship among advanced capitalism, the politics of knowledge, and the formation of identity. One of the central themes of this volume is the relationship between the political and the pedagogical for educators, activists, artists, and other cultural workers. McLaren argues that the central project ahead in the struggle for social justice is not so much the politics of diversity as the global decentering and dismantling of whiteness. This volume also contains an interview with the author

The global industrial complex : systems of domination by Steven Best( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Global Industrial Complex: Systems of Domination is a groundbreaking collection of essays by a diverse set of leading scholars who examine the entangled and evolving global array of corporate-state structures of hegemonic power-what the editors refer to as "the power complex"--That was first analyzed by C. Wright Mills in his 1956 classic work, The Power Elite. In this new volume edited by Steven Best, Richard Kahn, Anthony J. Nocella II, and Peter McLaren, the power complex is conceived as co-constituted, interdependent and imbricated systems of domination. Spreading insidiously on a global level, the transnational institutional relationships of the power complex combine the logics of capitalist exploitation and profits and industrialist norms of efficiency, control, and mass production, While some have begun to analyze these institutional complexes as separate entities, this book is unique in analyzing them as overlapping, mutually-enforcing systems that operate globally and which will undoubtedly frame the macro-narrative of the 21st century (and perhaps beyond). The global industrial complex-a grand power complex of complexes-thus poses one of the most formidable challenges to the sustainability of planetary democracy, freedom and peace today. But there can be no serious talk of opposition to it until it is more popularly named and understood. The Global Industrial Complex aims to be a foundational contribution to this emerging educational and political project
