Noah De Lissovoy's research focuses on critical and emancipatory approaches to pedagogy, curriculum, and cultural studies. He is particularly interested in problems posed for educators by globalization, the intersecting effects of race, class and capital in schools and society, developing the theoretical resources for social movements, and extending and rethinking the traditions of critical pedagogy and philosophy. His scholarship has proposed original theoretical frameworks for understanding democratic education in global context, the contemporary turn to punishment in schools and society, the meaning of ideology in the neoliberal era, and decolonial approaches to teaching.
