Pedagogy and the Politics of the Body: A Critical Praxis

Synopsis

Having been a dancer for many years, Shapiro turned to the academic study of the body as it intersects questions of pedagogy, art, and social change. She lays a foundation for a theory and practice of a somatically-orientated critical pedagogy by exploring what it might mean to approach questions of identity, justice, moral responsibility, ideological conformity, and resistance through engaging our own body experiences and memories.
