Bell hooks teaching to transgress chapter 1
Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom by bell hooksIn Teaching to Transgress, bell hooks--writer, teacher, and insurgent black intellectual--writes about a new kind of education, educations as the practice of freedom. Teaching students to transgress against racial, sexual, and class boundaries in order to achieve the gift of freedom is, for hooks, the teachers most important goal.
Bell hooks speaks to the heart of education today: how can we rethink teaching practices in the age of multiculturalism? What do we do about teachers who do not want to teach, and students who do not want to learn? How should we deal with racism and sexism in the classroom?
Full of passion and politics, Teaching to Transgress combines practical knowledge of the classroom with a deeply felt connection to the world of emotions and feelings. This is the rare book about teachers and students that dares to raise critical questions about eros and rage, grief and reconciliation, and the future o teaching its self.
To educate as the practice of freedom, writes bell hooks, is a way of teaching that any one can learn. Teaching to Transgress is the record of one gifted teachers struggle to make classrooms work.

Post a Comment. Thursday, May 24, bell hooks and Teaching to Transgress. Above all, I care deeply about each person I connect with as I teach and learn in and out of the classroom. Whenever I read bell hooks, I get emotional. I love her confessional narrative - as she would put it- combined with her ease of making theory sound straightforward and in accessible language without de-complexifying it. She gets me excited about teaching, angry about injustice and uncomfortable as I unpack my own privilege and practice. She makes me hopeful for the future in teaching.
But learning is a place where paradise can be created. The classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility. In that field of possibility we have the opportunity to labor for freedom, to demand of ourselves and our comrades, an openness of mind and heart that allows us to face reality even as we collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress. This is education as the practice of freedom. For bell hooks, the above quote marked the conclusion of the book, but for me, it has kindled hope for a new beginning.
