    • Knowledge Revolution The performative turn towards social and environmental justicePresentation given at Transformative Learning Symposium, Fielding Graduate University, 2005 Tiffany von Emmel, Ph.D.
    • Representational knowledge…1. Disappears multiple ways of knowing….When less of the body’s knowing is engaged, less of the collective’s knowing is engaged.….Good for control, not so good for life….
    • 2. The far senses keep things at a distance Ocularcentrism and Verbocentrism...Knowledge as ‘ownership’ makes commodification and control more possible
    • 3. ‘Deforested perception’• passivity (Alaine Touraine)• shallow perception (Laura Sewell, David Abram)• ‘impoverished imagination’ (David Orr, Maxine Greene)• fragmentation and industrialization (Susan Griffin, Tulku)...perpetuates consuming/producing ‘modes of desire’ (Peter Mclaren)
    • It’s a vicious cycle…… Controlling patterns of knowledge-creationinterfere with life’s dynamic balancing of relationship….
    • Linguistic turn  Performative turn• representation  participation• mind  embodied• subject/object  action• value subjective  value-specific• interpretation  activism• data-centered  relationship
