Representative of a wide range of adult education and lifelong frameworks and experiences, this book "gives voice" to emerging perspectives and offers thought-provoking critiques of established practices and accepted theories. Those in the adult academy, as well as "other voices" often excluded from the discourse in adult education, offer critiques of the social, political, economic, and historical forms of hegemony in the discipline. They analyze the ways in which these "hegemonic norms and practices" have affected adult learning environments and the participation rates of varying groups, and shed light on how education as a field of practice can marginalize individuals based on their ethnicity, race, gender, class, language, age, or sexual orientation. These critiques provide a powerful statement about silence, invisibility, and the marginalization of the "other," and suggest that adult educators may complicitly, if not implicitly, marginalize adult learners. This book will provide professors and students, adult literacy teachers, corporate trainers, community-based organizers, and others with alternative ways to think about adult education practice, adult learners, and the multiple, intersecting realties that influence the teaching/learning transaction. In so doing, this book provides practitioners and academicians with a forum to dialog about emerging theories and practices, and through language that is accessible and inclusive
