Illuminating Freirean Praxis in Turbulent Times

This collection features critical pedagogy scholars from around the world who are reinventing Paulo Freire’s philosophy of democratic education in schools, universities, communities, and other activist education spaces. In rich and engaging narrative style, authors explore the influence and potential of critical pedagogy in socio-political milieu such as immigration in Finland, youth resistance in Turkey, alternative education in rural United States, education for incarcerated populations, doctoral education and research collaborations, and teacher education in Australia, Canada, China, and the United States. This volume will be useful as a central text in undergraduate and graduate courses about the social foundations of education, democratic and progressive education, education in international perspective, and education for social change.
