Enchanted Pedagogies

Archetypes, Magic, and Knowledge


Volume Editor:
Pedagogies of magic have their own cocooned metaphors waiting to hatch. In literature and the arts, magic ties its practitioners to systems of learning and methods of becoming. Enchanted Pedagogies, edited by Kari Adelaide Razdow, is a collection of essays by artists and writers who reflect on archetypes and tropes of enchantment, intertwining elements such as transformation, imagination, creativity, and empathy. These essays evoke shapeshifters, witches, ghosts, fools, fairies, hags, gnomes, selkies, and more, exploring multi-disciplinary artistic practices. Enchanted Pedagogies presents ways to expand, imagine, and circumvent modes of creativity and pedagogies through personal, theoretical, practice based, and hybrid explorations. The fantastic and poetic intertwine in a space of reflexive storytelling, renewing significant transformational elements of the arts and education. Contributors are: Jesse Bransford, Vanessa Chakour, Trinie Dalton, Lorenzo De Los Angeles, Thom Donovan, Laura Forsberg, Pam Grossman, Amy Hale, Elizabeth Insogna, Candice Ivy, Tiffany Jewell, Alessandro Keegan, Jac Lahav, Ruth Lingford, Maria Pinto, Kris N. Racaniello, Kari Adelaide Razdow, Alicia Smith, Janaka Stucky, Kay Turner, Meg Whiteford and Erin Yerby.
