Trumpism, critical literacy, intersectionality, neoliberalism, pedagogy
In this article, I wonder on how to differently teach in the times of Trump where the old masks of domination (e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia) are made more explicit while also critically bearing in mind how other larger discourses like neoliberalism shapes our responses to the fascist leanings embodied in Trumpism. I explore how the backdrop of US cultural politics and white supremacy is also shaped by a new form of neoliberal multiculturalism that is meant to further divide collective efforts on the parts of racialized and classed marginalized communities. I close by offering concrete pedagogical strategies so to challenge activist researchers and educators to reconsider how to collectively navigate and resist the impulses inspired by this explicitly bigoted neoliberal times we live in.
