Rasmussen, Mary Lou; Allen, Louisa – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2014
In a discussion of Deleuze's theorization of concepts, Todd May asks "what can a concept do with that which cannot be identified?"

Wilkinson, Jane; Eacott, Scott – International Journal of Leadership in Education, 2013

In particular, we examine the process of becoming educational…

Rasmussen, Mary Lou; Gowlett, Christina; Connell, Raewyn – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2014
The most attractive thing in queer theory is the social movement energy that's been in it, the sense of excitement and boundary-breaking, the sense of new perspectives. Given the social anxieties and manipulated fear and right-wing triumphalism around today, people need that excitement and boldness--in education and in society at large. In this…

McLeod, Julie – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
Late modern social theories and critiques of neoliberalism have emphasised the regulatory and negative aspects of responsibility, readily associating it with self-responsibility or analytically converting it to the notion of responsibilisation. This article argues for stepping back from these critiques in order to reframe responsibility as a…

Cahill, Helen; Coffey, Julia; Smith, Kylie – Journal of Pedagogy, 2016
The development of gendered identities during early childhood and youth occurs in a context of "body culture" and the hyper-visibility of "perfect" bodies, which align with traditional gender ideals. Embodied methods can assist to make complexity more visible, and to allow participants to see fluidity, shifts, and becoming.…

Through a feminist agenda that seeks to redress gender inequities through remedies of redistribution and recognition, this paper draws on Fraser's work (1997) to articulate a framework of transformative justice.
