Holloway, Jessica – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
As a post-structural critique of US teacher evaluation policy, this paper aims to disrupt accepted conceptualizations of teachers by (1) identifying discursive constructions of teachers in political talk, action, and legislation; (2) unpacking the ways that these constructions operate to legitimize punitive accountability policies and practices;…

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…

Harris, Jess – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
Global contexts of accountability have placed unprecedented pressure on school leaders to improve the performance of their schools. Despite recognition that leaders' influence is mediated by school culture, few studies offer systematic examinations of culture-in-action in schools. The concept of culture remains nebulous and is frequently glossed…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper explores the entanglement between two partially connected concerns that offer the potential to animate current discussions on human rights teaching and learning: 'affect' and 'counter-conduct'. Both terms are at the heart of human rights education (HRE) approaches that aim at cultivating resistance in children and youth so that they…

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…

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…

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…

Mayes, Robyn; McAreavey, Ruth – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
This paper explores migrant women's encounters with formal and informal education in what can be termed new immigration rural destinations. We ask to what extent educational opportunities are realized in these new destinations. We show that education aspirations may be jeopardized because of the desire to achieve economic goals and thus require…

Wolfe, Melissa Joy – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
This article contributes to the discussion of gender inequality in schools with the central theme tracing ways that pedagogical affect im/mobilises agency. I argue that what I call "the schoolgirl affect," as distinctly gendered pedagogical practices in schools, constitute a schoolgirl body that refracts capacity for action in particular…

Sandretto, Susan; Tilson, Jane – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
Literacy policy and pedagogy in Aotearoa New Zealand have a strong discursive heritage of traditional literacies, which emphasise code breaking and meaning making with linguistic codes and conventions over other possible modes of communication. In a rapidly evolving landscape where changes in communication technologies give birth to new literacies…

Beauvais, Clementine – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
This article explores the ideological function of the derogatory label of "pushy parent", which, since the 1980s, has been used considerably in journalistic, popular, political and academic discourses in the UK and the USA. "Pushy parent" is not a descriptive term, but a conceptually vague label implying the existence of…

Schatz, Monika; Popovic, Ana; Dervin, Fred – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
Since the recent global paradigm shift in the governance of higher education toward business and marketing, internationally competitive education is increasingly considered as an asset for governments. Consequently, governments started to invest in education branding and marketing their educational systems. In Finland, national interest in…

Belluigi, Dina Zoe – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
This paper expands on empirical research which revealed that, whether or not an institution's interpretative community was explicitly informed by outcomes-based assessment, the more powerful and implicit discourses that emerged in assessment practices were those of their professional practice and academic traditions. Tensions, between the emerging…
