Putting Spivakian Theorizing to Work: Decolonizing Neoliberal Scientism in Education
Daza, Stephanie L.
Educational Theory, v63 n6 p601-620 Dec 2013
In this article, Stephanie Daza draws on Gayatri Spivak's theorizing to help make visible how education is shaped by an elusive conceptual apparatus of neoliberal scientism. She begins with an example of high-stakes learning and global competition as commonsensical policy practice at an elementary school. Then Daza develops an analysis that shows the possibilities of a Spivakian theoretical approach as an interpretive practice for education, and teacher education specifically.
