Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty-five years after the publication of Paul Willis's seminal text "Learning to Labor," Nadine Dolby and Greg Dimitriadis have brought together an internationally renowned group of scholars to reflect on the meaning and influence of what many consider to be the most influential book of our time in critical education and cultural studies. "Learning to Labor in New Times" refocuses attention on the themes that have been central to Willis's work, including the relationship between schooling and work, the lives of working class youth, and the continuing importance of ethnography as a research methodology. Concluding with an original essay by Paul Willis, readers will be reinvigorated by the intellectual vibrancy of daring to study the daily worlds of everyday youth.

Synopsis:

Learning to Labor in New Times foregrounds nine essays which re-examine the work of noted sociologist Paul Willis, 25 years after the publication of his seminal Learning to Labor, one of the most frequently cited and assigned texts in the cultural studies and social foundations of education.
