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…

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.

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…
