About the Edition

This project deconstructs the concept of privilege by reviewing two approaches---recognition and re-evaluation ---to deploying the concept in critical educational theory and practice. While the former approach intends to reveal the hidden and denied structural mechanisms working to secure and maintain privilege, the latter one aims at re-evaluating the notion of privilege itself, understanding it not only through what is gained by its perpetuation, but also by what is lost. I argue that the concept of privilege as used in ordinary language and much discursive inquiry is misleading, such that even those actively working to subvert domination end up reproducing those very structures through their use of the term. I urge that dismantling privilege requires its re-evaluation in addition to its recognition. Reconceiving privilege provides social justice educators with fruitful ways to engage resistant students in the project of personal and social transformation.

(4d) The forest setting of a film like Here Alone () in which a trio of survivors take great precautions to protect their camp from the infected marauders that roam the countryside contributes greatly to the homesteader vibe of the whole.

Thousands of white Americans have also died from the virus, but the pace at which African-Americans are dying has transformed this public-health crisis into an object lesson in racial and class.
