«Troubling Education», Activism, and Academia: Notes on the Margins of the Useful Book

The book "Troubling Education: Queer Activism and Antioppressive Pedagogy" (New York: RoutledgeFalmer, 2002) by Kevin Kumashiro belongs to the classic publications in anti-oppressive education. A queer activism is conceived there as a broad spectrum of anti-normative strategies, including LGBT +, feminist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist politics and so on. Antioppressive pedagogies are aimed at forming socially sensitive people, which are able to see multilayered oppressions in the society and to resist, to fight against injustice.
