Windle, Joel – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Accounts of neoliberalism in education frequently evoke a universal trend, with insufficient attention to context, as well as routinely presenting the 'pre-neoliberal' as the ideal. This paper argues that studies of neoliberalism, concentrated in the global North, frequently ignore the distinctive forms and histories of neoliberalism in the global…

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…

Means, Alexander J.; Slater, Graham B. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
This paper examines how transformations in political economy and digital technology point toward potential post-neoliberal futures.

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;…

Hjörne, Eva – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
Access to public education that provides equal opportunities for all is a democratic right for every person living in Sweden. In addition, every child should as far as possible be included in the mainstream school. An official story that is taken for granted in Sweden is that an extremely low proportion of children are in need of special support,…

Lim, Leonel – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2014
In concert with Singapore's ambitions of a global city well engineered to the human capital needs of the transnational knowledge economy, its schools in recent years have emphasized the teaching of critical thinking. Such efforts, however, are not without tensions and contradictions. Given that such a curricular ideal is underpinned by liberal…

Villenas, Sofia A.; Angeles, Sophia L. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2013
This article examines how a progressive, rural/small city community in the USA wrestles with race, racism, and school equity in the public arena of print media. It inquires into the tensions, limitations, and possibilities for race-conscious discourse in the face of both explicit racist hate speech and benevolent liberal race talk. Based on…

Schostak, John – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2012
There is nothing natural about space as it is understood here. Spacing is an act that constructs relationships, intervals, separations and thus boundaries. The earth has no territories other than those imagined and enforced through acts of territorialisation. A city has its private spaces closed to open access and open spaces that are inscribed…

Hursh, David W.; Henderson, Joseph A. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2011
Neoliberal policies, in spite of their considerable damage to economic equality, the environment, and education, remain dominant. In this paper, we suggest that neoliberalism has remained dominant in part because the power elite who benefit from the policies have gained control over both public debate and policy-making. By dominating the discourse…

Lipman, Pauline – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2011
This article examines the intertwining of neoliberal urbanism and education policy in Chicago.

Yoon, Ee-Seul – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2011
In recent decades, under the mutually constitutive processes of neoliberal urbanization and globalization, Vancouver has radically transformed and become a serious contender for the title of "world-class city". Against the background of this socio-spatial force reconfiguring the city, I explore how the city's unique development of…

Gulson, Kalervo N.; Fataar, Aslam – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2011
This paper applies ideas that emanate from the Global North, concerning neoliberalism and neoliberal governmentality, to the case of marketisation in South Africa. It also attends to the limits of Northern ideas that are both intellectual undertakings and policy manifestations. In the first part of the paper, we identify how rationales for school…

Pedroni, Thomas C. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2011
Although Detroit is not a centre of global finance, and plays a declining role in global production, it nevertheless participates in the present remediation of the relationship between cities and the globe. Manoeuvring to reposition the city as the global hub of mobility technology, metropolitan Detroit's neoliberal leadership advances particular…
