Mihaila, Ramona; Popescu, Gheorghe H.; Nica, Elvira – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
The purpose of this article was to gain a deeper understanding of Arendt's educational philosophy, her perspective of political involvement as a kind of political education, and natality as the fundamental nature of education. The current study has extended past research by elucidating Arendt's view of participatory democratic politics, her…

Biesta, Gert – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2016
In this paper, I explore the educational significance of the work of Hannah Arendt through reflections on four papers that constitute this special issue. I focus on the challenge of reconciling ourselves to reality, that is, of being at home in the world. Although Arendt's idea of being at home in the world is connected to her explorations of…

Meyer, Karen Ann; Fels, Lynn – Canadian Journal of Education, 2013
This article responds to a "what-if" question regarding education, raised by a woman inmate. Emerging in the midst of a research project with women in prison, the unexpected question haunts the two authors, both educational researchers, who in turn reconsider education's role in difficult circumstances. For guidance, the authors turn to…

Aggerholm, K.; Standal, O.; Barker, D. M.; Larsson, H. – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2018
Background: Models-based approaches to physical education have in recent years developed as a way for teachers and students to concentrate on a manageable number of learning objectives, and align pedagogical approaches with learning subject matter and context.

Sonu, Debbie – Canadian Social Studies, 2018
In her essay, Neoliberalism's Frankenstein, Wendy Brown (2018) unpacks with meticulous depth how the current neoliberal condition valorizes private venture by eroding trust in the meaning of the social. In an attempt to understand, like Michel Foucault (1977), the governing rationality that generates certain kinds of subjects and their conduct,…

Wildemeersch, Danny – Environmental Education Research, 2018
The paper analyses the contribution of critical pedagogy to the reflection on environmental and sustainability education. It links this reflection to a case of a Flemish/Belgian citizen movement that sensitizes the public for the issue of silence, through various educational and community-based practices. These practices inspired the author to try…

Graham, Janna – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2018
Adult education in art galleries sits on a fault line, at once an apparatus upholding the affirmative aspects of museum culture cultivated by global elites, a propellant in the whirring of an increasingly dislocated set of events on trendy and consumable political themes, and a site for 'allyship' and other kinds of radical and socially…

Bergdahl, Lovisa; Langmann, Elisabet – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This paper rethinks the fostering task of the teacher in a time when it, paradoxically, has tended to become marginalized and privatized despite its public urgency. Following post-holocaust thinkers such as Hannah Arendt and Zygmunt Bauman, the position explored here is radical in the sense that it takes 'the crisis of traditions' and the erosion…

Berger, Iris – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
This paper aims to impregnate the concept of educational leadership with new meanings and new possibilities. I draw on Hannah Arendt's ("The human condition." University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1958/1998) political thought, particularly, her concepts of "plurality" and "natality" alongside the distinction she made…

den Heyer, Kent; van Kessel, Cathryn – McGill Journal of Education, 2015
We all have a sense of evil, but many of us do not ponder its nature or the ways in which our beliefs about evil shape what we teach and learn about the actions of citizens in historical or contemporary times. We argue that the word and concept of evil can be detrimental to the development of good citizens when it is used as a political and…

Gardiner, Rita A. – Values and Ethics in Educational Administration, 2015
Can authentic leadership engender ethical communities? If so, in what ways? One way that leading authentically may help engender ethical communities is by attending to relationships. Focusing on relational aspects may have value in promoting the ethical potential of authentic leadership. For that ethical potential to be realized, however, leaders…

Coelho, Heitor – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2018
With education technology pointing to an ever-increasing automation of educational activities, a few enthusiasts go so far as to predict the replacement of teachers by robots. The present paper intends to take such declarations as a provocation, encouraging us to question our understanding of educational practices. That this possibility is even…

Restaino, Jessica – Composition Forum, 2014
This essay considers the long-standing challenges, in both practice and theory, to collaborative writing in the first-year classroom. I argue that Hannah Arendt's concepts of plurality and natality are useful frameworks for thinking constructively and practically about teaching argumentative writing through collaboration. I explore these…

Morgan, Marie – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2016
Dissatisfied with the Western tradition of political philosophy, Arendt maintained a tension between the political, which she associates primarily with the freedom to act, and the philosophical, which she associates principally with the activity of thinking, throughout her works. Whilst Arendt's work is underpinned by a focus on political action,…

Plowright, Susan – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
In the midst of a crisis like the climate crisis and calls for "all hands on deck", what do academics, as a microcosm of humanity, see? In Hannah Arendt's terms, an "abyss of freedom" to act or a paralysing "abyss of nothingness"? Some from the academy themselves, including Tamboukou, Apple and Bourdieu, make…
