Winton, Sue – Critical Studies in Education, 2018

Adopting a discursive understanding of policy, the study used rhetorical analysis to identify how…

Acuff, Joni Boyd – Critical Studies in Education, 2018
Art educators continuously struggle to understand what multiculturalism "looks like" in the art classroom.

Hellberg, Sofie; Knutsson, Beniamin – Critical Studies in Education, 2018
What is being sustained in education for sustainable development (ESD)? Drawing on biopolitical theory, this article puts forth the hypothesis that it is in fact the very life-chance gulf that separates wealthy "sustainable" mass consumers from poor "sustainable" subsistence-level populations. Hence, in sharp contrast to the…

Cohen, Dan – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
Over the past 25 years charter school policies have spread through the United States at a rapid pace. However, despite this rapid growth these policies have spread unevenly across the country with important variations in how charter school systems function in each state. Drawing on case studies in Michigan and Oregon, this article argues that…

Symes, Colin; Drew, Christopher – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
As universities have succumbed to market discourses, they have adopted advertising strategies. It is not uncommon to see advertisements for them displayed in such mobile spaces as railway stations and alongside highways. Whilst it is true that such environments have always sought to take advantage of populations in transit, the fact that higher…

Farley, Helen; Hopkins, Susan – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
Space, time and movement have particular meanings and significance for Australian prisoners attempting higher education while incarcerated. In a sense, the prison is another "world" or "country" with its own spatial and temporal arrangements and constraints for incarcerated university students. The contemporary digital…

Southgate, Erica; Brosnan, Caragh; Lempp, Heidi; Kelly, Brian; Wright, Sarah; Outram, Sue; Bennett, Anna – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
Higher education is understood as essential to enabling social mobility. Research and policy have centred on access to university, but recently attention has turned to the journey of social mobility itself--and its costs. Long-distance or "extreme" social mobility journeys particularly require analysis. This paper examines journeys of…

Metcalfe, Amy Scott – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
Transnational academic mobility is often characterized in relation to terms such as "brain drain", "brain gain", or "brain circulation"--terms that isolate researchers' minds from their bodies, while saying nothing about their political identities as foreign nationals. In this paper, I explore the possibilities of a…

Gulson, Kalervo N.; Lewis, Steven; Lingard, Bob; Lubienski, Christopher; Takayama, Keita; Webb, P. Taylor – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
The argument of this paper is that new methodologies associated with the emerging field of "policy mobilities" can be applied, and are in fact required, to examine and research the networked and relational, or "topological", nature of globalised education policy, which cuts across the new spaces of policymaking and new modes of…

Martin, Gregory – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
Across the globe, neoliberal reforms have produced effects in the higher education sector that are multiple, convergent and embodied or performed. In this context, a growing number of activist-scholars, from a range of disciplines, have explored the role of critical pedagogy within the space of the classroom. Yet, persistent critiques and…

Blackmore, Jill; Gribble, Cate; Rahimi, Mark – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
Since the late 1970s, international education has steadily gained in popularity in China. An emerging middle class seeks to strengthen its position in China's rapidly stratifying society under its socialist market economy with the shift from wealth creation for all to wealth concentration for a few. Previously, a foreign qualification was…
