Pedagogical Pleasures

"Pedagogical Pleasures" inquires into pleasure (understood as enjoyment, delight, and/or gratification) as a crucial but neglected aspect of teachers' lives and work. Pleasure is examined as an historically contingent and unstable product of language use, rather than as a spontaneous, personal, and psychological-feeling.- This book is a departure from conventional accounts of pedagogy in "two ways": It is unashamedly about "teachers" rather than "students," and it does not offer any "solution" to pedagogical "problems." Instead, it seeks to extend pedagogical knowledge by inquiring into the sorts of pleasure that are available to teachers at this historical time."
