Fall 2020: Radical Hope
Kevin Gannon (aka The Tattooed Professor) offers this insightful look at the ways critical pedagogy can inform some of the most pressing challenges in higher education today. “Harsh budget cuts, the precarious nature of employment in college teaching, and political hostility to the entire enterprise of education have made for an increasingly fraught landscape. Radical Hope is an ambitious response to this state of affairs, at once political and practical—the work of an activist, teacher, and public intellectual grappling with some of the most pressing topics at the intersection of higher education and social justice.” (From the publisher’s introduction)
The book is available as an ebook through The Claremont Colleges Library at https://ebookcentral.
