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. Foley); (4) "Becoming Somebody in and against School: Toward a Pyschocultural Theory of Gender and Self Making" (Wendy Luttrell); (5) "In Search of Aztlan: Movimiento Ideology and the Creation of a Chicano Worldview through Schooling" (Armando Trujillo); (6) "Formal Schooling and the Production of Modern Citizens in the Ecuadorian Amazon" (Laura Rival); (7) "The Production of Biologists at School and Work: Making Scientists, Conservationists, or Flowery Bone-Heads?" (Margaret Eisenhart); (8) "Taiwanese Schools against Themselves: School Culture Versus the Subjectivity of Youth" (Thomas A. Shaw); (9) "Social Difference and Schooled Identity at a Mexican Secundaria" (Bradley A. Levinson); (10) "From Indios to Profesionales: Stereotypes and Student Resistance in Bolivian Teacher Training" (Aurolyn Luykx); (11) "Schools and the Cultural Production of the Educated Person in a Nepalese Hill Community" (Debra Skinner and Dorothy Holland); and (12) "Keys to Appropriation: Rural Schooling in Mexico" (Elsie Rockwell).
