Duhn, Iris – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2016
Childhood and time are closely linked concepts in education. Childhood as a modern domain is a cornerstone of the human narrative of being in time, with birth as the beginning and death as the end. A newborn child marks new beginnings and hope for the future, and geopolitically early childhood education is now seen as a cornerstone for building…

Todd, Sharon – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
For the past 15 years, scholars in education have focused on Levinas's work largely in terms of his understanding of alterity, of the self-Other relation, of ethics as "first philosophy" and the significance these concepts have on rethinking educational theory and practice. What I do in this paper, by way of method, is to start from a…

This review explores Anne Kamstrupp's "The Wow-effect in Science Teacher Education" by examining her theorized "wow-effect" as a teaching enactment that may serve to engage students, but often fails to provide deep understanding of science content. My response extends her perspective of socio-materiality as means to understand…

Sinner, Anita – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2011
During a 1-year study, the visual journal of a preservice teacher was explored as an image sphere, or "bildraum", in relation to teacher culture. Artworks created in the visual journal offered an anamorphic perspective on the materiality of teacher culture, tracing the lived experiences of a student of art in the process of becoming an art teacher…

We argue that learners' bodies are always in the process of becoming assemblages of diverse and dynamic materialities. Following the work of the historian of science Karen Barad, we argue that mathematical concepts must be considered dynamic…

Ek, Andrew; Macintyre Latta, Margaret A. – Education and Culture, 2013
A prospective teacher and a teacher educator enter into a yearlong conversation seeking greater curricular physicality and materiality within its enactment.

Stormer, Nathan – Quarterly Journal of Speech, 2013
This essay proposes the genealogical study of remembering and forgetting as recursive rhetorical capacities that enable discourse to place itself in an ever-changing present. "Mnesis" is a meta-concept for the arrangements of remembering and forgetting that enable rhetoric to function. Most of the essay defines the materiality of "mnesis", first…
