[Xmca-l] Re: About 「hope 」 in socio-cultural research



Hi Jing Jing,

I was just about to say the same thing, not only Paolo Freire but also Orlando Fals Borda and his concept of vivencia.  It is interesting, I was just having a talk with a student about the two different perspectives of what many have come to call critical theory (although I don't think Freire or Fals Borda or Budd Hall ever referred to participatory action research in that way).  There is the more Latino/Latina pan-African perspective that seems more based in hope and possibility, and there is what seems to me a more European perspective that is more angry and cynical (I want to emphasize that this just my view right now).

Good luck on your project.

Michael

Dear Jing Jing,
I am so glad to hear of your interest in hope as it relates to  the
socio-cultural
framework in education. You might want to look at *Pedagogy of Hope* by
Paulo Freire,
and *The Revolution of Hope: Toward a Humanized Technology* by Erich Fromm
Also you can read the introduction to this book for a little more specific
application of
Freire's work to the present day.

This project seems really significant in the context of present and future
Japan.
Let us know if we can help more specifically.
