Queer, Crip and Social Pedagogy. A Critical Hermeneutic Perspective



This chapter re-examines the intersections of three theoretical frameworks: social pedagogy, queer theory and crip theory. It begins by addressing social pedagogy from a queer perspective (first intersection), incorporating other closely related perspectives that have an influence on the way we understand and work in education. It then goes on to explore crip theory and its power and relation to queer pedagogy (second intersection). This connection between queer and pedagogy, and later on with crip, enables us to think and act in unconventional, non-hegemonic ways and propose a new framework for diversity and for humanity as a whole.
