Confronting neoliberalism: Toward a militant pedagogy of empowered citizenship

Michael D. Giardina, Norman K Denzin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article is structured along two particularly pressing fault lines: (a) the educational arena and our work as critical pedagogues and engaged public intellectuals, and (b) the location of our research to what we may term the street (or, the spaces in which neoliberal engagements are faced head-on). It presents a discussion on neoliberal fundamentalism, and both political and academic responses to its ravages. It also discusses neoliberalism in the context of subjectivity, and how we can see our way forward in the promotion of social justice imperatives that effectuate change through blood, sweat, and tears.
