Transforming Eurocentric Consciousness

By Fyre Jean Graveline  

Paperback $31.95

This book is intended to contribute to both the theoretical debate and classroom practice in the field of education. It explores the legitimacy of Aboriginal, holistic paradigms within some of the diverse frameworks available to educators: experiential learning, feminist and anti-racist pedagogies are emphasized. It documents an effort to interrupt current Aboriginal/European power relations by evolving an alternative Aboriginal teaching model and enacting it within university classrooms. This work reflects an understanding that all sites must be engaged as potentially emancipatory.
