Hansen, Dion Rüsselbaek; Phelan, Anne M. – Research in Education, 2019
In this article we argue for the need to rethink the crisis of democracy both within and beyond education (Toft and Rüsselbaek Hansen, 2017). This crisis can be explained variously, depending on how it is understood and on what basis. From our point of view, and with inspiration from thinkers as Nietzsche, Arendt, Agamben and Rancière, we argue…

Johansen, Martin Blok – Global Studies of Childhood, 2017
The words 'children' (Danish: 'børn') and 'young people' (Danish: 'unge') are so often combined that they almost have the character of idiomatic expressions. But what differences in the use of the words can be found? This article seeks to study the prevalent, dominant discourses about children and young people. In particular, it endeavours to…

Martens, Marianne – Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 2015
According to Stearns (2009), culture shapes childhood. The way a society defines culture shapes: (a) how childhood is constructed; (b) the production of literary products and services for young people; and (c) training for library professionals.

This article disseminates the results of a qualitative, case-based study carried on in Danish schools in 2008-2011.

Thorgersen, Ketil – English Teaching: Practice and Critique, 2014
Outcomes-based curricula have become the global norm in the last decennia. School authorities have more or less left behind their old habits of either forcing upon teachers a set of content to teach and methods to use, or leaving teachers alone because they trust their professional knowledge to choose what is best for their learners. The current…
