Understanding and Interrupting Hegemonic Projects in Education: Learning from Stuart Hall
Apple, Michael W.
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v36 n2 p171-184 2015
Stuart Hall had a significant impact on critical analyses of rightist mobilizations in education. This is very visible in my own work, for example, in such volumes as "Official Knowledge" (2014) and "Educating the 'Right' Way" (2006). After describing an important series of lectures that Stuart Hall gave at the Havens Center for Social Structure and Social Change at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, I detail the nonessentialist position that served as the grounding of Hall's own discussion of race, ideology, and conjuncture, and how it affected so much of the critical examination of neoliberal and neoconservative reconstructions of education. In the context of laying out the tasks of the "critical scholar/activist in education," I then portray what we can learn from Hall about the role of the organic intellectual.
