This book takes a serious look at the erosion of democratic public life and public education, and offers directions for re-imagining, re-designing, and re-inventing the current system. Bridging the disciplines of film studies, postcolonial studies, curriculum theory, and politics, these essays suggest new possibilities for curriculum, and shed new light on what shape public education could take in coming decades.

About the Author:

Greg Dimtriadis is Assistant Professor of Sociology of Education in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy and SUNY Buffalo. Dennis Carlson is Senior Professor of Educational Leadership and Director of the Center for Education and Cultural Studies at Miami University of Ohio.

Review:

"From Plato to popular culture and police brutality, from James Baldwin, Rosa Parks, and the Black Arts Movement to the Confederate Flag in an era of globalization, from effacement to conversation across difference, this collection represents an intellectual breakthrough in the fields of curriculum and cultural studies."
-William F. Pinar, St. Bernard Parish Alumni Endowed Professor, Louisiana State University
"Eleven papers, some previously published, critique neoconservative and neoliberal educational reforms, and present a vision for keeping the promise of public education through the construction of a new set of social relationships that are built on collaboration, solidarity, social justice, and equity for all."
-Journal of Economic Literature
