Description - Schooling Desire by Ursula A. Kelly

The author draws on radical theories of literacy, culture, identity and pedagogy to frame the culture of pedagogy as it relates to human desire. Examples from (auto)biography, classroom practices, and popular media - such as the films "Exotica" and "To Sir With Love" - provide the means by which the author highlights some of the pedagogical dilemmas facing literacy practices which often work to silence the cultural politics of identity and desire. This volume reconceptualizes traditional and dominant notions of literacy education and schooling through the lenses of feminist, poststructuralist and cultural theories. It focuses on the structuring of desire, pleasure and longing within the experiences and practices of schooling.
