The Homeplace, the Margin and the Classroom: Mapping Radical Liberation
Keywords:bell hooks, black radical tradition, politics of space, antiracist pedagogy, feminism
The homeplace, the margin and the classroom could be conceived as the hallmarks of bell hooks’ theoretical reflection on the historical link between space and political resistance. Designed as locations of racial and gender oppression, those spaces have been turned into radical sites of antiracist pedagogy and African American resistance. Hence, mapping these locations of struggle means connecting the historical production of space to the process of radical political subjectification within the African American context. The ultimate intent of the essay is in fact to connect bell hooks’ writings on the locations of domination/liberation with the Black Radical Tradition.
