This anthology crosses disciplines to explore the use of images as modes for creative and critical inquiry. Researchers in the fields of literacy, physical education, and special education describe and critique how they have used images with students of various ages and backgrounds to evoke personal interpretations, deconstruct cultural messages, examine processes of oppression, and imagine alternative ways of acting in the world. Through this book, the contributors hope to inspire educators to explore the use of images in critical and creative pedagogy as well as in their personal lives and to encourage researchers to push methodological boundaries through the use of &la" multiple forms of representation (Eisner, 1993).
