Hodgson, David – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
Disciplining and pastoral power are central to the strategies and practices of intervening in the lives of young people deemed at risk of disengaging from school, or not completing their compulsory education. As an expression of power concerned with young people's welfare and self-improvement, disciplining and pastoral practices push young people…

Nairn, Karen; Anderson, Vivienne; Blanch, Keely – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
We argue that Garrett and Segall's concepts of "doing school" and "pushing back" are valuable tools for analysing pre-service teachers' political views of neoliberal education reforms such as the introduction of charter schools. We extend Garrett and Segall's conceptualization by hybridizing "doing school" and…

Santori, Diego – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper aims to extend existing theorisations around the notion of public narratives by analysing their regulatory effects under intensified market conditions. My analysis suggests that public narratives constitute a liminal space, one that it is not exclusively real or imaginary, factual or normative, but that simultaneously affects and is…

Clarke, Linda – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper engages with key contemporary debates about teaching and teacher education through proposing an innovative, interdisciplinary model, the Place Model, which uses two senses of "place" to provide comparative lenses for a timely, a-priori examination of the place of the teacher: place in the humanistic geography tradition as a…

Done, Elizabeth J.; Murphy, Mike – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper critically examines competing demands placed on teachers, with reference to recent inclusion policy in England and Australia. The authors draw on Michael Foucault's analysis of power, neoliberalism(s) and biopolitics to explore the ways in which teachers are "responsibilised" into negotiating and fulfilling demands related to…

Beddoes, Kacey; Schimpf, Corey – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
The role and influence of department heads on women in academia is understudied and weakly conceptualized. This article expounds on prior work, which identified limitations of department head literature, to put forth three problematic discourses that run through much of the department head research: the "discourse of fairness," the…

Wright, Jan; Cruickshank, Ken; Black, Stephen – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
Much of the literature on social class and language study in schools argues that for middle-class parents and their children, languages are chosen for their capacity to offer forms of distinction that provide an edge in the global labour market. In this paper, we draw on data collected from interviews with parents and children in middle-class…

Weninger, Csilla – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
Public education in post-industrial societies has been restructured based on a human capital model that prioritizes the economic value of citizens for the benefit of globally competitive national economies. In a policy-as-numbers climate [Lingard, B. (2011). "Policy as numbers: Ac/counting for educational research." "The Australian…

Davies, Bronwyn – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper explores the relation between poststructuralist theorising and new materialism with a particular focus on the work of Barad. Tracing the lines of thought, particularly as they relate to ethics, through the works of Foucault, Butler, Cixous and Deleuze the paper finds a range of concepts that anticipate and link directly with Barad's…

Mayeza, Emmanuel – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
South African research on young children's constructions of social identities illuminates the significance of play in the construction of gender identities. However, what remains largely understudied are the children's construction of sexualities through play. The dominant discourse of "childhood innocence" obscures the variegated…

Salter, Peta; Maxwell, Jacinta – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
The structure of the Australian national curriculum encompasses engagement with "intercultural education". Significantly, the context from which the curriculum was developed was heavily influenced by a multiculturalist ideology in which notions of cohesion and harmony were dominant. Therefore, those working with the curriculum need to…

de Freitas, Elizabeth – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
Sensor technologies are increasingly part of everyday life, embedded in buildings (movement, sound, temperature) and worn on persons (heart rate, electro-dermal activity, eye tracking). This paper presents a theoretical framework for research on computational sensor data. My approach moves away from theories of agent-centered perceptual synthesis…

Gulson, Kalervo N.; Webb, P. Taylor – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
In this paper, we are interested in the notion of multiple ways of thinking, knowing and transforming life, namely an increasing capacity to intervene in "life" as a "molecular biopolitics," and the changing ways in which "life" can be understood computationally. We identify and speculate on the ways different ideas…

Aronsson, Lena; Lenz Taguchi, Hillevi – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper takes its starting point in a shared problem of concern, formulated in terms of what might be produced--or not--as effects of encounters between neuroscientific research and preschool practices. The aim is to show what emerged in collaborative encounters, in what is theorized and practised as Deleuzo-Guattarian-inspired cartography…

Youdell, Deborah; Harwood, Valerie; Lindley, Martin R. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
There are well documented concerns with the imposition of high stakes testing into the fabric of school education, and there is now an increasing focus on how such tests impact children's "well-being." This can be witnessed in reports in the popular news media, where discussion of these impacts frequently refer to "stress" and…
