About ReSpliced

ReSpliced is an ongoing project between five very different art educators. In this space we hope to explore notions of hybridity, learning through shared process and the de-centred classroom.

    Connection to the course:

    “One of their responses is to position themselves as teachers who are not cultural experts, but rather who are supporters of culture. They are constantly working out ways within their particular contexts to do this. They resist the position of teacher as an isolated expert.” (Hermes, “White Teacher, Native Students”, p.108)

    another nice quote:

    “As a teacher, I cannot help the students to overcome their ignorance if I am not engaged permanently in trying to overcome my own.” (Freire, P. 1998, pp. 89) We should not only model skills but active learning.

    a few more…

    “A central feature of postmodernism has been its critique of totality, reason and universality.” (Giroux, “Crossing the Boundaries of Educational Discourse: Modernism, Postmodernism, and Feminism”, p.118)

    “Education must be understood as the production of identities in relation to the ordering, representation, and legitimation of specific forms of knowledge and power…Critical pedagogy needs to be informed by a public philosophy defined, in part, by the attempt to create the lived experience of empowerment for the vast majority.” (Ibid, p.123)

    “…providing students with the skills they will need to locate themselves in history, find their own voices, and provide the convictions and compassion necessary for exercising civic courage, taking risks, and furthering the habits, customs, and social relations that re essential to democratic public forms.” (Ibid)

    “A critical pedagogy for democracy does not begin with test scores but with questions.” (Ibid)

    “In pluralist societies, individuals commonly identify themselves in multiple ways.” (James, “Constructing Cultural Identities”, p.28)

    “Cultural identities with regard to ethnicity are hybrid, syncretic and always in process.” (Hall, 1995, qtd in James, p.29)

    * One could substitute many words for ‘ethnicity’.
