The Cultural Production of the Educated Person. Critical Ethnographies of Schooling and Local Practice. SUNY Series, Power, Social Identity, and Education.
Levinson, Bradley A., Ed.; And Others
Around the world, schools are central to the social and cultural shaping of the young. They inculcate the skills, subjectivities, and disciplines that undergird the modern nation-state. The case studies in this volume demonstrate a new direction for critical educational research as they demonstrate social reproduction and cultural production and explore the differences among schools as sites for the production of educated persons. Contributions include: (1) "The Cultural Production of the Educated Person: An Introduction" (Bradley A. Levinson and Dorothy Holland); (2) "Behind Schedule: Batch-Produced Children in French and U.S. Classrooms" (Kathryn M. Anderson-Levitt); (3) "The Silent Indian as a Cultural Production" (Douglas E.
