Congratulations to Wagner College political science professor Steve Snow whose new book, “Bourgeois Ideology and Education: Subversion Through Pedagogy,” has been published by the British publisher Routledge.
“This book identifies the origins and central assertions of bourgeois ideology as well as the reasons for their persuasive power, and offers pedagogical tools to weaken them,” says the publisher on its website. “The author suggests techniques for use in the classroom, the community and the imagination that subvert negative stereotypes about poor people and individualist explanations for socio-economic status. Written from an ecumenical socialist perspective combining Marxist, neo-Marxist and anarchist arguments and concerns, this book utilizes a broad interdisciplinary scope, encompassing political theory, religion, political psychology, and literature.”
Professor Steven G. Snow, Ph.D., is chairman of the Department of Government & Politics at Wagner College, where he first joined the faculty in the fall of 1997.
According to his Wagner profile, “Prof. Snow was born and raised in Iowa (not Idaho or Ohio), but now considers himself a New Yorker.”
Snow earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa and his master’s and doctor’s degrees from the University of Washington.
He was a Fulbright Fellow at Santa Maria la Antigua University in Panama City, Panama, during the academic year 1996-97.
In 2011 he was recognized with a faculty award for excellence in teaching.
Snow has published research in the Journal of Political and Military Sociology, Research in Political Economy, Southern European Politics, Social Science Quarterly and South African Journal of International Relations.
