Settler colonialism appropriates now (in the classroom): Anita Juárez, Clayton Pierce, ‘Educational Enclosure and the Existential Commons: Settler Colonialism, Racial Capitalism, and the Problem of the Human’, in Alexander J. Means, Derek R. Ford, Graham B. Slater (eds), Global Pedagogy and Politics: Educational Commons in Theory and Practice, Palgrave, 2017, pp. 145-166.
Abstract: In recent years, educational theory has largely focused on conceptualizing and thinking through what an educational politics of the commons might look like. A politics of the commons remains attractive to those who want to find an educational exit point from the aggressive and violent nature of capitalist forces that continue to destroy humans and ecosystems within the current neoliberal moment. This concern is especially relevant since schools in the neoliberal phase of capitalism, as this literature points out, play a pivotal role in maintaining and reproducing the ongoing processes of primitive accumulation.
