This extensive Handbook brings together different aspects of critical pedagogy with the aim of opening up a clear international conversation on the subject, as well as pushing the boundaries of current understanding by extending the notion of a pedagogy to multiple pedagogies and perspectives. Bringing together a group of contributing authors from around the globe, the chapters will provide a unique approach and insight to the discipline by crossing a range of disciplines and articulating both philosophical and social common themes. The chapters will be organised across three volumes and twelve core thematic sections: Section 1: Reading Paulo Freire; Section 2: Social Theories; Section 3: Key Figures in Critical Pedagogy; Section 4: Global Perspectives; Section 5: Indigenous Ways of Knowing; Section 6: Education and Praxis; Section 7: Teaching and Learning; Section 8: Communities and Activism; Section 9: Communication and Media; Section 10: Arts and Aesthetics; Section 11: Critical Youth Studies; and Section 12: Science, Ecology and Wellbeing. The SAGE Handbook of Critical Pedagogies is an essential benchmark publication for advanced students, researchers and practitioners across a wide range of disciplines including education, health, sociology, anthropology and development studies.
Chapter 102: Critical Life Writing for Social Change
Critical Life Writing for Social Change
When Freire first used the term ‘critical pedagogy', it was in order to argue that ‘education makes sense because women and men learn that through learning they can make and remake themselves’ (Freire, 2004: 15). In this chapter, we further explore this connection between identity and analysis as we theorize practices of life writing as a tool for critical understanding of the intersections of self and culture. We build upon Haug's early experiments in feminist writing collectives and illustrate our argument with examples of writing drawn from our federally funded research with old and older LGBTQA2S+ individuals in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
