This book talk will feature Dana Wright, co-editor of Engaging Youth in Critical Arts Pedagogies and Creative Research for Social Justice, which explores the potential of critical arts pedagogies and community-based research projects to empower young people as agents of social change. With theoretical contributions as well as notes from the field, this book is “designed for those who yearn to engage creative research for social justice.”
“The table of contents is a stunning assemblage of writers, crafting inquiries for justice, rooted in critical race, queer, transnational and decolonizing theories, asking always how to honor the critical insights and incites of young people at the edge, and how to build aesthetic and epistemic justice to provoke the radical imagination.”
—Michelle Fine, Distinguished Professor of Critical Psychology and Urban Education, The City University of New York
