    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Ken Moffatt turns to postmodern philosophy’s grappling with late capitalism and the omnipresence of technology in order to develop a new approach to reflective social work practice and critical pedagogy. He attempts to reconcile postmodern thinkers with the realities of teaching social work to diverse student populations in a precarious era.

    Reviews

    Laura Béres, Western University:
    Postmodern Social Work straddles the areas of critical pedagogy and social work, offering a method for teaching in a manner that examines the academic climate, which is being so negatively impacted by neoliberalism and managerialism.
