Overview

What role can desire play in pedagogical interaction? In Learning Desire, contributors from the fields of education, cultural studies, psychoanalysis and literary theory explore the many ways desire intersects with knowledge, recognition, fantasy, and

embodiment, and what this can mean for transformative pedagogical practice. While acknowledging the productive and destructive force desire can have on the learning experience, the authors offer engaging, innovative modes of thinking about teaching and thinking about desire as an

education tool.

This volume, rooted in theory, is one also geared towards practice; in taking a fresh look at the limits and possibilities of a transformative pedagogy, it will also give teachers and students new languages for articulating their experiences in the classroom and

beyond.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Insights from the fields of education, cultural studies, psychoanalysis and literary theory are used to examine desire and the ways it intersects with knowledge, recognition, fantasy, and embodiment. The essays treat desire as a transformative tool, providing different perspectives on what constitutes desire and its importance as an educational practice. They deal with the works of such theorists as Jacques Lacan, Carl Jung, Luce Irigarary, Judith Butler, Ren<'e> Girard, Gilles Deleuze, Homi Bhabha, and Maria Torok.
