Salomão Filho, Alfredo; Kamp, Annelies – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Social capital is a puzzling actor; made "real" by its allies. It has been 'out-there' in the form of scientific publications for decades. Although some characteristics are common to all elaborations of this theory (networks, trust, and norms), there remains confusion in determining a 'coherent concept' of social capital. In this paper,…

Saari, Antti – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019

Chang, Ethan – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Contrary to educational policy and research assumptions about an immanent 'twenty-first century' future, this article uses the concept of 'sociotechnical imaginaries' to trace how nonprofit actors in California invented and materialized distinctive visions of educational progress. Drawing on interview and ethnographic fieldnote data, I illustrate…

Ratner, Helene – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Drawing on science and technology studies (STS), this article explores information practices around children deemed to be 'at risk'. Risk is not a self-evident epistemic object.

Sjödin, Elin Sundström – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
There have been increasing demands to improve Swedish children's reading habits, triggered by poor PISA results in 2013, and public healthcare has stepped in as a strong reading-promoting actor. Drawing on the emerging field of valuation research in STS, the paper explores the values enacted in health-related information brochures about reading…

Our specific media focus reflects the recognition that issues, problems, and…

Verger, Antoni; Fontdevila, Clara; Parcerisa, Lluís – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
In the last decades, most countries have adopted data-intensive policy instruments aimed at modernizing the governance of education systems, and strengthening their competitiveness. Instruments such as national large-scale assessments and test-based accountabilities have disseminated widely, to the point that they are being enacted in countries…

Ertas, Nevbahar; McKnight, Andrew N. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
This paper explores the vocabulary and frameworks offered by two theories of public policy process: the advocacy coalition framework (ACF) and the narrative policy framework (NPF) and what they offer to the study of global education reform. The foci of ACF are policy subsystems, formation of advocacy coalitions around policy issues, and their…

Rowe, Emma – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
This paper explores third-wave post-neoliberalism as an assemblage, fractured and dis/embodied, a mobile tool of governance articulated in various shapes across geopolitical sites. Post-neoliberalism is assembled alongside other key cultural shifts, such as post-truth, posthuman and the computational turn. In light of this Special Issue, this…

Windle, Joel – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Accounts of neoliberalism in education frequently evoke a universal trend, with insufficient attention to context, as well as routinely presenting the 'pre-neoliberal' as the ideal. This paper argues that studies of neoliberalism, concentrated in the global North, frequently ignore the distinctive forms and histories of neoliberalism in the global…

Bamberger, Annette; Morris, Paul; Yemini, Miri – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
We explore the role of neoliberalism within portrayals of internationalisation in higher education (HE). Through an analysis of four features of internationalisation, we suggest that they embody a complex entanglement of neoliberal categories and assumptions with other, primarily progressive humanitarian ideals. This framing of…

Rowe, Emma; Lubienski, Christopher; Skourdoumbis, Andrew; Gerrard, Jessica; Hursh, David – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Neoliberalism as a concept, ideology, or theoretical lens has emerged in the last couple of decades as a monolithic presence in education research, and the social sciences more broadly. We bring two aims to this Special Issue: to critique the rigour of neoliberalism as a theoretical framework utilised within education research; and second, to…
