Narrating Transformative Learning in Education

Edited by Drs. Morgan Gardner and Ursula A. Kelly

Dr. Morgan GardnerThis collection of critical narratives contains stories that powerfully document how teaching lives are constituted through place, politics, perspective and position.

While drawing from an array of critical perspectives and disciplinary influences, these stories are united by the manner in which, collectively, they attest to and celebrate the often mundane and all too often messy nature of teaching for social change.

Joanne Gozawa of the California Institute of Integral Studies praised the authors.

“These narratives tell the story of what we transformative educators have taken on – learning in the dark. This is a work that gives meaning to the patterns that relate uncertainty to minute, but precious insights – the disorienting path of the transformative educator.”
