Abstract

"Utopian in theme and implication, this book shows how the practices of critical, interpretive inquiry can help change the world in positive ways. This is the promise, the hope, and the agenda that is offered."--Norman K. Denzin, From the Foreword. "Its focus on learning, education and pedagogy gives this book a particular relevance and significance in contemporary cultural studies. Its impressive authors, thoughtful structuring, wide range of perspectives, attention to matters of educational policy and practice, and suggestions for transformative pedagogy all provide for a compelling and significant volume."--H. Svi Shapiro, University of North Carolina-Greensboro. Distinguished international scholars from a wide range of disciplines (including curriculum studies, foundations of education, adult education, higher education, and consumer education) come together in this book to explore consumption and its relation to learning, identity development, and education. Readers will learn about a variety of ways in which learning and education intersect with consumption. This volume is unique within the literature of education in its examination of educational sites - both formal and informal - where learners and teachers are resisting consumerism and enacting a critical pedagogy of consumption.
