Austin, Jon (2017) Second Winter: a whiter shade of (the) blues. In: Spinning popular culture as public pedagogy: critical reflections and transformative possibilities. Imagination and Praxis: Criticality and Creativity in Education and Educational Research (11). Sense Publishers, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, pp. 41-51. ISBN 978-94-6300-846-4


This chapter uses the album cover art of Johnny Winter's 'Second Winter' album [1969] to explore the pedagogical possibilities of utilizing everyday cultural artifacts to explore, amongst other things, the para-textual and public pedagogical functions of popular culture. In particular, Richard Avedon's photographic and album design work are drawn upon to enter the terrain of the [Neo] colonial appropriation of cultural forms [music] of the Other.
