Dr. Nocella Co-Authors Chapter

Avery, Andrea Main

Dr. Anthony J. Nocella II, visiting professor of Hamline University in the School of Education recently co-authored a chapter titled Anarchy in the Academy: Staying True to Anarchism as an Academic-Activist in the book Anarchist Pedagogies: Collective Actions, Theories, and Critical Reflections on Education, edited by Robert H. Haworth. Contributors to this edited volume engage readers in important and challenging issues in the area of anarchism and education. Anarchists, activists, and critical educators should take these educational experiences seriously as they offer invaluable examples for potential teaching and learning environments outside of authoritarian and capitalist structures. Major themes in the volume include: learning from historical anarchist experiments in education, ways that contemporary anarchists create dynamic and situated learning spaces, and finally, critically reflecting on theoretical frameworks and educational practices.
