Collaborative Imagination: Earning Activism Through Literacy Education.


Collaborative Imagination: Earning Activism Through Literacy Education

Paul Feigenbaum

Southern Illinois University Press


231 pages



Feigenbaum explores what it means for contemporary progressives to earn activism through literacy education. He cites the power of imagination for fighting injustice for educators, especially when employed communally. Specifically, counterhegemonic praxes of literacy education facilitate progressivesAE collaborative imagination of a world in which citizenship is no longer rigged and humans live in ecological balance with nature. He envisions a paradigm shift from critical pedagogy, which relies on outdated, hierarchical understanding of literacy that is at odds with its own goal of fostering egalitarian alliances.
