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…

Khurshid, Ayesha; Saba, Alexis – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
In a world marred by the fears of religious extremism, Muslim women have become subjects of various global projects that aim to modernize 'traditional' Muslim societies through women's education and empowerment. Embedded in these discourses is an assumption that "all" educated Muslim women will empower themselves through challenging the…

Mayeza, Emmanuel – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper focuses on the ways in which five- to seven-year-old primary school children in a Black/African township in South Africa construct and experience 'free play' in the classroom. Findings highlight the gendered manner in which play is constructed and constantly policed by these young children during 'free play'. By foregrounding the young…

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…

This study explores the significance and complexity of time practices and experiences in understanding the emerging identities and aspirations of South Korean pre-college students and their mothers who moved to Singapore for the children's education.

Yang, Peidong – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
Existing scholarship on international student mobility (ISM) often draws on Bourdieu to interpret such mobility as a strategy of capital conversion used by privileged classes to reproduce their social advantage. This perspective stems from and also reinforces a rationalistic interpretation of student mobility. A shift of focus to interAsian…

Sierk, Jessica – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
In mainstream discourse, rural generally implies white, while urban signifies not-white. However, what happens when "rural" communities experience demographic change? This paper examines how students from a rural, New Latino Diaspora community in a Midwestern state complicate traditional notions of rurality. Data from participant…

Lambert, Kirsten; Wright, Peter; Currie, Jan; Pascoe, Robin – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
This paper explores Deleuze and Guattari's schizoanalysis in relation to student and teacher becomings and the way these are actualised within the neoliberal and heterosexually striated spaces of the secondary school assemblage. Deleuze and Guattari considered a narrow approach to education problematic and called for creativity as a site of…

Bragg, Sara; Manchester, Helen – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
Concepts of school "ethos" or "culture" have been widely debated in education since the 1980s. This is partly as a consequence of marketisation, partly because ethos has been identified as a low-cost route to school improvement. Corporate, authoritarian, and most recently "military" models of ethos have been widely…

Charteris, Jennifer – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
Conceptualised from a range of sociological perspectives, and theorised extensively over the last 50 years, human agency is an integral element to lifelong learning. Poststructural theory with its decentred discursive construction of the learner offers a vibrant conception of classroom dynamics. This paper envisions how learner agency can be…

Otterstad, Ann Merete; Waterhouse, Ann-Hege Lorvik – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
In this paper, we try to move beyond fixed narratives of child/ren and childhoods, a fixity that comes, in part, as a consequence of the adult/child dyad. We undertake a cutting together-apart of childhood photographs which allows us to explore the complex machinery that produces the categories of child/ren as human beings that are, variously,…

Johnson, Latrise P. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2015
This ethnographic case study examines how Black educators at an urban middle school enacted critical place pedagogies in order to create a sense of community--that is, a sense of belonging to the place of school--and mutual nurturing between people and space in an attempt to transform how their Black males experienced school. Educators at Starks…
