'Platform capitalism' and 'surveillance capitalism' describe the new business model and market form of the web. These forms of digital capitalism have begun to infuse the higher education landscape by merging with existing political demands for universities to become more data-driven, competitive, and market-focused. This article presents a case…

Decuypere, Mathias; Landri, Paolo – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
University rankings have become commonplace in higher education. Traditional quantified rankings do not merely measure educational performance: they equally grant status, enforce competition between institutions, and are emblematic for the ongoing capitalization of higher education. Drawing on the field of Science and Technology Studies, this…

Lange, Jochen – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
The paper considers digital tutoring platforms as commercial products in the shadow education sector. In particular, it focuses on relatively new platforms which purportedly act as tutors themselves: web-based learning software providing "intelligent tutoring systems.' The question is not how effective and beneficial these platforms are for…

Gorur, Radhika; Dey, Joyeeta – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
Mapping India's vast, complex, and unruly education system through the systematic generation of accurate and current data, and encouraging accountability by persuading a diverse array of actors to engage with such data, is an ambitious, if not heroic, project. Yet this is what India's Education Information Management System (EMIS), the Unified…

Tan, Charlene; Yang, JeongA – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
This article draws upon Torfing's dialectics of path-shaping and path-dependency to shed light on the persistent challenge faced by the policymakers to reduce academic burden in Korea. It is argued that the policy agenda to promote a more all-encompassing form of education reflects the path-shaping motivation of the Ministry of Education to modify…

Servant-Miklos, Virginie; Noordegraaf-Eelens, Liesbeth – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
The aim of this paper is to critique the individualistic ontological premises of 'self-directed learning', as it has been developed in humanist education literature in the tradition of Carl Rogers. The authors suggest instead that social-transformative education and its critical social ontology serve the emancipatory promise of education better…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
The main objective of this article is to discuss the affective dimension of resistance in critical pedagogy in a way that would recognize neoliberalism's affective repercussions. The point is not merely to show that affect is involved in the emergence of resistance in critical pedagogy, but rather to expand the articulation of resistance in…

Scholes, Laura – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
A seminal body of work emerged in the 1980s recognising reading as a site for gender and class identity work. However, understandings around working-class girls' reading identities are invisible in the current Australian education policy space where gender equalities with respect to curriculum subjects have disappeared. This paper draws on a…

Qvarsebo, Jonas – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
In recent years, many programs and manuals for 'norm criticism´ have been produced for schools in Sweden. In this article, I situate norm criticism and norm critical pedagogics within discourses of values and norms, legal rights and policies through a close reading of the material produced for the Swedish pre-school. I explore the targets, modes,…

Fontdevila, Clara; Verger, Antoni; Avelar, Marina – Critical Studies in Education, 2021
This paper examines the increasingly diverse range of roles played by the corporate sector in shaping education policy. While a growing body of scholarship has documented the deepening embeddedness of the corporate sector within policy-making processes, empirical research on the strategies mobilized by corporate actors remains unsystematised and…

This paper contributes to a growing body of research on the increasing datafication of schooling, which has become a salient topic in comparative education and education policy research.
