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,…

Mulcahy, Dianne – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
This paper examines the critical contribution that affects as "bodily" capacities to act, engage and connect can make to children's learning in museums and schools. Drawing chiefly on empirical material collected over the course of visits by school children to Museums Victoria, Australia, and bringing a sociomaterial sensibility to bear,…

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…

Canning, John – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
This article examines the 'Teaching Excellence Framework' (TEF) for UK universities through the lens of Jean Baudrillard's concept of hyperreality. I argue that the TEF is a hyperreal simulacrum, a sign which has no traceable genealogy to the practice of learning and teaching.

Gong, Qian; Dobinson, Toni – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Maoist policy in China emphasised the peasants and workers. It integrated academic study with productive labour to nurture socialist citizens useful for the nation's modernisation. More recently, China has been described as having a 'neoliberal turn' but many see the situation as more complex than this due to the significant role given to the…

Bennett, Anna; Burke, Penny Jane – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
In this paper we deconstruct hegemonic conceptions of time in higher education. Drawing on a recent project, we argue that limiting assumptions about time dominate notions of student capability and prospects of success. The paper reveals how the conceptualisation of time is constituted within a framework that individualises and decontextualises…

Marquis, Elizabeth – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This article explores the representation of disability and academic identity in two award-winning films: "Still Alice" and "The Theory of Everything." Drawing on scholarship about embodiment and the 'normal professor body', I demonstrate how the complex images of disabled academics in these films take up and replicate (to…

Stein, Sharon – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
Canada's recently revamped international education brand, EduCanada, offers a rich example of developments at the intersections of higher education internationalization and marketization. In this paper, I examine the EduCanada website to consider how national exceptionalist and 'othering' narratives are reproduced in the recruitment of…

Svendsen, Jesper Tinggaard; Svendsen, Annemari Munk – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper aims to investigate the marketization of higher education (HE) as it manifests itself in the concept of "Student life" on Danish HE websites. Taking Norman Fairclough's critical discourse analysis as its starting point, this paper critically examines this particular practice of marketization by making a single-case study of…

Konik, I.; Konik, A. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This article explores the possibility that the recent #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall student protests at South African universities may be partially underpinned by grief over a dying essentialist assemblage in the wake of the 2012 Marikana massacre--which saw the assemblage severed from the State Apparatus in a way that spelled its doom.…

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…

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…
