Davies, Bronwyn; Dormer, Suzy; Gannon, Sue; Laws, Cath; Taguchi, Hillevi Lenz; McCann, Helen; Rocco, Sharn
Gender and Education, v13 n2 p167-82 Jun 2001
The authors examine the concept of subjectification, using Judith Butler's theorizing of subjection to investigate their memories of being subjected in school settings and analyze subjectification. Their collective biography highlights aspects of the achievement of the individual appropriated schoolgirl subject who simultaneously constitutes herself and is constituted through discourse and looks at the ideal of autonomy.
