Lewis, Andrew – Perspectives in Education, 2019

Morgan, John; Hordern, Jim; Hoadley, Ursula – Curriculum Journal, 2019
This paper suggests that advocates of the 'knowledge turn' have been united in their opposition to Young and Muller's (2010) Future 2, but that this 'union' has masked very different views of the relations between Young and Muller's Future 1 and Future 3. Whereas some who subscribe to the 'turn' see a 'weak boundary' between Futures 1 and 3 (and…

Chen, Yan; Rubinstein-Avila, Eliane – Language Learning Journal, 2018
This paper focuses on code-switching (CS) in postcolonial (P-C) classrooms (e.g. Africa, Asia and Asia-Pacific) where the use of English has increased not only as a subject matter, but also as the language of instruction across all subjects.

Jacklin, Heather – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
National education policies reference a representation of an imagined subject of schooling derived from a broader social imaginary that underpins the projects of the state, in a process which I refer to here as 'the logic of policy'. I offer an account of how this representation is derived and propose three conceptual elaborations of this view. I…

South Africa as a nation became democratic in 1994 because of the end of apartheid.

While few applaudable steps have been taken towards this direction, South African higher education remains largely…
