Doerr, Neriko Musha – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
In this article, I analyze implications of recent calls to increase minority students' participation in study abroad. I argue, although these calls aim for inclusivity, they frame study abroad as the only way of fostering 'global competence' and imply that minority students lack it. I also highlight the oft-erased global competence nurtured in…

Merry, Michael S. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
In this essay I question the liberal faith in the efficacy and morality of citizenship education (CE) as it has been traditionally (and is still) practiced in most public state schools. In challenging institutionalized faith in CE, I also challenge liberal understandings of what it means to be a citizen, and how the social and political world of…

Read, Barbara; Burke, Penny Jane; Crozier, Gill – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
Whilst most social and educational research on friendship focuses on children at school, it remains a crucially important factor for students in higher education -- and can play a key role in the maintenance, exacerbation or subversion of dominant forms of social inequalities. This paper explores the complexities of such dynamics in relation to…

Arce-Trigatti, Andrea; Anderson, Ashlee – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
With this paper we present findings from a cultural studies project that aims to illuminate and define the various, sometimes overlapping, conceptions of diversity in public educational discourses. We do so via a critical discourse analysis of select political texts: namely speeches by former Secretary of Education Arne Duncan that reference…

Burnett, Cathy; Merchant, Guy – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
Research in New Literacy Studies has demonstrated how literacy consists of multiple socially and culturally situated practices illuminated through a focus on literacy events. Recently, this sociocultural perspective has been complemented by relational thinking that views literacy as an ongoing reassembling of the human and more-than-human. This…

Lefstein, Adam; Pollak, Itay; Segal, Aliza – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
Encouraging and developing voice in the classroom is a key aim of dialogic pedagogy, but teachers' elicitation of student voices is not always experienced as empowering. This case study investigates a sixth grade literacy lesson discussion about responding to peer group social ostracism. The teacher pressed students to adopt and articulate a…

Dadvand, Babak; Cuervo, Hernan – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
With growing policy pressures on schools to produce outcomes, there are concerns about the loss of caring relationships from education. In this article, we argue that rather than eliminating all forms of care, neoliberal reform agendas have co-opted the practices of care by encouraging an ethic of care that serves instrumental agendas of student…

Yung, Kevin Wai Ho; Yuan, Rui – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
Private tutoring has become a widespread phenomenon worldwide, partly due to the global trend of marketisation and commodification of education. Informed by a discursive view of identity and through multimodal discourse analysis, this study aims to unveil part of the shadow education discourse by investigating the identities of 41 English language…

McKnight, Lucinda; Whitburn, Ben – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
The publication of John Hattie's "Visible Learning: A synthesis of over 800 meta-analyses relating to achievement" in 2009 has led to the widespread adoption of the Visible Learning program around the world. Critique of this program has been less widespread, especially in English, and has tended to centre on the mechanisms of…

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
Although often labelled obsolete and ethically dubious, twentieth-century behaviourist principles of learning have been central to the development of instructional technology and the design of modern learning environments. Using Andrew Pickering's philosophy, this article addresses behaviourism as a mangle of practice to highlight the conceptual…

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…
