Reprint. Originally published: Boulder, Colorado: Westview, 2002.

One of the most influential critical educators of the twentieth century, Paulo Freire challenged those educational inequalities and conditions of injustice faced by oppressed populations.

In this new edition of Reinventing Paulo Freire, Antonia Darder re-examines his legacy through reflections on Freirean pedagogy and the narratives of teachers who reinvent his work.

The fully revised first part provides important historical, political, and economic connections between major societal concerns and educational questions raised by Freire and their link to the contemporary moment, including questions tied to neoliberalism, coloniality, and educational inequalities.

At the heart of the book is a critical understanding of how Freire's pedagogy of love can inform, in theory and practice, a humanizing approach to teaching and learning.

Powerful teacher narratives offer examples of a living praxis, committed to democratic classroom life and the emancipation of subaltern communities.

The narratives clearly illustrate how Freire's ideas can be put concretely into practice in schools and communities.

These reflections on Freirean praxis are sure to spark conversation and inspiration in teacher education courses.

Through a close theoretical engagement of Freire's ideas and key insights garnered from lived experiences, the book speaks to the ways Freire can still inspire contemporary educators to adopt the spirit of liberatory pedagogy, By so doing, Reinventing Paulo Freire is certain to advance his theories in new ways, both to those familiar with his work and to those studying Freire for the first time.
