Similarly, those designated as Other must both reclaim and remake their histories, voices, and visions as part of a wider struggle to change those material and social relations that deny radical pluralism as the basis of democratic political community. This suggests a pedagogy in which occurs a critical questioning of the omissions and tensions that exist between the master narratives and hegemonic discourses that make up the official curriculum and the self-representations of subordinated groups as they might appear in “forgotten” or erased histories, texts, memories, experiences, and community narratives.

As part of a project of voice and difference, a theory of border pedagogy needs to address the question of how representations and practices that name, marginalize, and define difference as the devalued other are actively learned, internalized, challenged, or transformed. That is, it is imperative that such a pedagogy acknowledge and critically interrogate how the colonizing of differences by dominant groups is expressed and sustained through representations in which the humanity of the other is either ideologically disparaged or ruthlessly denied.

In addition to reading different texts and refiguring the grounds on which knowledge is produced, border pedagogy takes up the important task of establishing conditions for dominant and subordinate texts to be read differently.
