Abstract

This panel critically investigates and informs the construction of the rural, rural identity, the politics of the rural and the understanding of the rural internationally. The presenters will analyze and expand the notion of critical understandings of rural education particularly in the areas of race, class, gender, LGBTQ within conceptualizations of social justice. The concern is that there have been many volumes written on critical issues in urban education, but only a small number on rural education and the majority of those are not critical. These presentations will not only discuss “schools in the country”, but also expand conceptualizations of the rural beyond schools and place, and beyond the borders of the United States. It also expands notions of the rural beyond the focus on just the South, although the geography of the South is certainly ever present.
