The SAGE Handbook of Critical Pedagogies

The SAGE Handbook of Critical Pedagogies

Three Volume Set
Edited by:

March 2020 | 1 752 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

**Winner of a 2022 American Educational Studies Association Critics' Choice Book Award**

This extensive Handbook will bring together different aspects of critical pedagogy with the aim of opening up a clear international conversation on the subject, as well as pushing the boundaries of current understanding by extending the notion of a pedagogy to multiple pedagogies and perspectives. Bringing together a group of contributing authors from around the globe, the chapters will provide a unique approach and insight to the discipline by crossing a range of disciplines and articulating both philosophical and social common themes. The chapters will be organised across three volumes and twelve core thematic sections.

The SAGE Handbook of Critical Pedagogies is planned to be an essential benchmark publication for advanced students, researchers and practitioners across a wide range of disciplines including education, health, sociology, anthropology and development studies
