Glories of the Soviet Past or Dim Visions of the Future: Russian Teacher Education as the Site of Historical Becoming
Aydarova, Olena
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v46 n2 p147-166 Jun 2015
In the 2000s, the Russian Ministry of Education introduced educational modernization reforms built on neoliberal principles. This critical ethnographic study examines how the memories of the Soviet past are being re-narrated to assess the current educational reforms. I use Bakhtin's theory of historical becoming to analyze how the vestiges of the past co-exist with the emerging forms of the neoliberal present and shape how teacher educators and their students interpret educational reforms and their daily work.
