Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"As one of the key thinkers within education in Canada today, Kelly offers a profoundly disturbing and yet surprisingly hopeful cultural reading on loss and migration in Newfoundland and Labrador - disturbing for what it says about loss and identity, and yet hopeful because there can be writers with Kelly's depth of analysis." - Claudia Mitchell, James McGill Professor, McGill University

"This is a highly original, timely book that explores issues of personal and collective loss and grief and reveals how they relate to identity and social-cultural knowledge. Building on interdisciplinary views of cultural loss, Kelly develops a unique educational theory of loss and grief aimed at encouraging a struggle against the structures that deter a critical transformative view of teaching and learning. The vital connections the author makes between thinking and feeling also invite readers to make renewed commitments to the work of transformative education." - Ann V. Dean, Associate Professor, Educational Foundations, SUNY New Paltz

"Kelly exemplifies the heart of pedagogy. With passionate imagination, heartful commitment, prophetic zeal, and boundless love, she embraces the possibilities of transformation in our personal and pedagogic lives. The book s eloquent and sophisticated prose breathes with lively and lovely wisdom, an enthusiastic call for living truthfully in words and in the world." - Carl Leggo, Professor of Language and Literacy Education, University of British Columbia; Author of Come-By-Chance
