In this article, we analyze the coverage of Malala in "The New York Times" and "The Wall Street Journal" to explore how these influential media sources characterize Islam and Pakistan to tell Malala's story. Our discourse analysis reveals how these newspapers construct Malala's status as a global icon as an embodiment of her…

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…

Khoja-Moolji, Shenila S. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
Studies in education over the past decade highlight the hijacking of educational agendas by neoliberal rationalities and logics. I illustrate these processes in relation to transnational campaigns for girls' education, where the purpose of "education" is reduced to producing wage-based labor and an accumulation of skills that enhance…

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…

Sherbine, Kortney – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
Ongoing debates over children's encounters with popular culture are grounded in representational images of what childhood is and what childhood should be. As such, the tendency to overcode and regulate children's behaviors, relationships, and desires are often part of a greater effort to prepare the child to fit fixed and essentialized notions of…

Paechter, Carrie; Clark, Sheryl – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
In this paper we consider discourses of friendship and belonging mobilised by girls who are not part of the dominant "cool" group in one English primary school. We explore how, by investing in alternative and, at times, resistant, discourses of "being nice" and "being normal" these "non-cool" girls were able…

Drawing on ethnographic multi-modal data of the gendered and sexual dynamics of pre-school play (age 6) in a rapidly declining fishing and farming community in North Finland, this paper offers a glimpse into our sense-making of a short video-recorded episode in which three boys repeatedly pile up on and demand a kiss from one of their girl…

Tamboukou, Maria – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2015
In this paper, I look into the papers of Fannia Cohn, an immigrant labour organizer, who served the Education Department of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU) between 1918 and 1962 and became one of its few women vice-presidents. As an internationally recognized figure in the history of workers' education, Cohn left a rich…

Renold, Emma; Ivinson, Gabrielle – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2014
The paper works with queer and feminist post-human materialist scholarship to understand the way young teen valleys' girls experienced ubiquitous feelings of fear, risk, vulnerability and violence. Longitudinal ethnographic research of girls (aged 12-15) living in an ex-mining semi-rural community suggests how girls are negotiating complex…

Using narrative analysis of the advertisement and…

Mir, Shabana – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2011
The scene for this paper is set in the USA immediately post-9/11 when the meaning of nation shifted dramatically, in turn shaping Muslim American identity. I examine Muslim American undergraduate women's performance of immigrant, gendered, youthful, Muslim and American identities. The findings are framed within symbolic interactionist, Foucauldian…
