[Xmca-l] Re: PDF Document Sociocultural and Feminist Theory_ Mutuality and Relevance.pdf



Thanks, Greg--it was nice to see you at the panel, and I'm glad the session
felt interesting--and hopefully also useful.

The book is Power and Privilege in the Learning Sciences: Critical and
Sociocultural Theories, and it's co-edited by Indigo Esmonde and Angela
Booker (both cc'ed on this message). My chapter, co-written with Bill
Penuel, is an argument for advancing queer theory in the learning sciences;
other chapters focus on frameworks like Critical Race Theory, feminist
theory, critical geography, critical technology studies, and so on.

It's a really exciting project, and one that I think is sorely needed.
