Sawyer, Wayne; McLean Davies, Larissa – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021

Osberg, Deborah; Biesta, Gert – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2021
This paper problematizes current thinking about education by arguing that the question of educational purpose is not simply a socio-political question concerned with what the ends should be and why, but can also be understood as a structural question, concerned with the way we understand education's directional impetus. We suggest that it is…

Wilson, Anthony – Education 3-13, 2021
This paper is a re-examination of Louise Rosenblatt's seminal work of reader-response theory, The Reader, The Text, The Poem. I argue that poems are essentially social in nature and that they open up a space in which conversation and interpretation can take place. With Rosenblatt I argue that until a reader engages with a poem, bringing to it a…

Picture books are important mediums for transformation and learning. They offer both the tools and the truths for readers to critically engage with important issues, such as the reality of death and dying. The primary purpose of this study is to inspire engaged and deliberate conversations about mortality, dying, and grief in the context of…

Peers, Chris – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2021
Could there be a better instance of ethical conflict at the scene of the modern Western university than the case of Martin Heidegger, who in 1933 became a Nazi, arguably to elevate his own standing and career? In this article I examine the opposing ethical forces that animated Heidegger's brief foray into Nazism, to ask whether the same forces…

Choo, Suzanne S. – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Recent debates among scholars in Literature education have led to polarizing views about the aims of the subject. The debate reignites ancient quarrels about the aesthetic and political values of literary study and relatedly, the different pedagogical approaches to teaching. In the first part of this paper, I explore the aesthetic-political divide…

Stabler, Albert – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2021
Sentimentalism as a genre is known for its association with melodramatic 19th-century novels, such as Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" or Alcott's "Little Women." But, as a cultural tendency, sentimentalism can be found in a range of 19th- and 20th-century cultural, social, and political phenomena, with philanthropic and educational…

Rousell, David – Journal of Environmental Education, 2021
This paper develops a cosmopolitical approach to multi-species inquiry in environmental education and its associated research. Drawing on Isabelle Stengers' concepts of "etho-ecology" and an "ecology of practices", the paper explores ethical and political questions of what it means to think-with nonhuman animals as sentient…

Beatham, Mark – Ethics and Education, 2021
Could public education as a cultural institution promote the commonwealth? ('Commonwealth,' from The Oxford English Dictionary as, 'public welfare; general good or advantage;' and 'to a body or a number of persons united by some common interest.') This paper argues proper education enfranchises the young through proper relationships to place, past…

Riley, Howard – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2021
Whilst the faculties of literacy and numeracy are rightly recognised as worthy of pedagogical nurturing, this article champions a more venerable articulacy -- "visualcy" -- crucial to a healthy culture, arguing that the one domain of human inquiry which distinguishes the visual arts from other disciplines is surely that surrounding the…

Doddington, Christine – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2021
In this paper, I set an aspect of what it is to live a flourishing life against the backdrop of neo liberal trends that continue to influence educational policy across the globe. The view I set out is in sharp contrast to any narrow assumption that education's main task is the measurement of high performing individuals who will thus contribute to…

Krönig, Franz Kasper – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2021
What forms of practices can we observe in music education settings? Is it always music just because there are instruments in the room and some sounds are produced or because we can identify some pieces of a musical work now and then? Or is it because the children are engaged in self-determined activities? Or does the verbalization of behavior in…

Mecija, Casey – Global Studies of Childhood, 2021
This article examines Diane Paragas' film Yellow Rose (2019) for its capacity to offer important insights into the reparative utility of music for a child separated from a parent due to deportation. While the film depicts the brutality of contemporary U.S. migration policies, Yellow Rose is also a story about the role of aesthetic expression in…

Whitelaw, Jessica – Journal of Language and Literacy Education, 2021
In this article, I examine collage in pre-service teacher education as an arts-based theory and practice to interrogate knowledge in the classroom; how it gets generated, by whom, and to what end. I consider how historical legacies of collage that revolutionized modern art by shifting focus away from technique and mastery toward concept, process,…
