Producing "Docile Bodies": Disciplining Citizen-Subjects
Stewart, Dafina-Lazarus
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p1042-1046 2017
The US academy has been anti-democratic in philosophy and practice from its inception, seeking to discipline students as docile bodies cooperative with a white supremacist status quo. This Foucauldian analysis highlights how the academy's historical and ongoing enforcement of discipline and normalizing judgments made the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election inevitable. Yet, this essay concludes by lifting up the consistent resistance of Black students as the foundation for the liberatory revolution necessary within the academy.
