Written by leading scholars and activists from Canada, Germany, Malta, Norway, Turkey and the USA, this book offers international perspectives on critical pedagogy during the Covid-19 pandemic. It examines the social and political impact of the pandemic on education, and explores how the creation of digital communities has become indispensable in maintaining connectivity and building networks. Including contributions from Michael W. Apple, Antonia Darder, Henry A. Giroux, Peter Mayo, Peter McLaren, Wayne Ross and Ira Shor, this volume examines critical issues, controversies of education, and social and political problems that have been exacerbated by the pandemic. The chapters call for constructive critical consciousness and a commitment to social justice, addressing current issues, including Black Lives Matter, racism, poverty, social and gender inequality, women' s rights and teachers' isolation during the pandemic. In part I, the authors address these issues through the lenses of neoliberalism, neo-conservatism, rightist ideology and capitalism. Parts II and III of the volume offer inclusive perspectives, personal accounts and regional outlooks on these issues, and assess their influence on society and education during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As we are moving into the third decade of the 21st century, this important text insightfully contributes to our contemporary understanding of the praxis of critical pedagogy. * James D. Kirylo, Professor, Curriculum Studies, University of South Carolina, USA * Amidst the pandemic there is an urgent need to critically make aware educators, students and parents about the possibilities of Critical Pedagogy to recreate human agents of change. Critical Pedagogy being a political and moral project that is connected to critical consciousness by following Freire' s humanizing praxis is a road to a Pandemic Pedagogy that can lead to a road of liberation. With contributions from some of the world' s best scholars, this volume comes at a time most needed. * Maria Nikolakaki, Professor, University of Peloponnese, Greece * Mizikaci and Ata harmoniously assembled a group of critical voices from world-renowned authors with emerging voices in the area of critical pedagogy in Turkey. The analyzes incorporated in the text offer us a current vision of the struggle that must be maintained for social justice and against oppression in the context of neoliberal fascism that is trying to consolidate in these times. * Dr. Luis Herta-Charles, Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction, New Mexico State University, Mexico * This ground-breaking volume brings Paulo Freire' s critical pedagogy to the heart of the Covid-19 pandemic. Bringing together an impressive line-up of the most potent critical minds of today, Critical Pedagogy and the Covid-19 Pandemic is an essential book that should be read, re-read, and shared with friends. * Petar Jandric, Professor, Zagreb University of Applied Sciences, Croatia, and University of Wolverhampton, UK *
