Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article explores the role of the podcast, Block Chronicles, in contributing to Latinx education issues via its a role as a form of public pedagogy. The authors situate their work in experiences within urban spaces such as Los Angeles, CA and the south Bronx, NY, while also making links to rural/semi-rural towns in the New Latinx south. Testimonio scholarship is used as a methodological tool that informs theorization and the data collection/interview process. Implications are made related to how frameworks around public pedagogy informs the development of podcasts and how they can positively impact the experiences of Latinx students. Further, this work extends bounded notions of urban education by articulating a more hybrid take on the historical experience of Latinx communities. As such, we take into account the historical role of migration and settlement across urban-rural contexts and seek to explore how these multiple cultural worlds convene and redefine place, history, and schooling.
