Blackmore, Jill – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Feminist theorists critiqued classical liberalism for the gender binaries embedded in social, political and economic theory and everyday social relations. Neoliberalism economises the social and political based on autonomous individualism, equating equity with choice, naturalising the market as the mechanism to allocate social goods and education…

Riddle, Stewart; Cleaver, David – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2017
This paper investigates the ways that teachers in one alternative school blur the boundaries of the political, personal, and philosophical in their efforts to re-engage marginalised and disenfranchised young people. The labours of the school staff at Harmony High offer an intriguing narrative of working both within and against the grain of policy…

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…

Anwaruddin, Sardar M. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
The central argument of this essay is that critical literacy with a rationalistic bent may not enable us to cope with ethical dilemmas in our responsiveness to human sufferings. I argue that critical literacy education would benefit from turning to the recent scholarship on affect/emotion studies. I draw upon the works of Sara Ahmed--one of the…

Danforth, Scot – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
Over the past two decades, the percentage of American students with disabilities educated in general classrooms with their nondisabled peers has risen by approximately 50%.

Clarke, John – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2015
In this article, I argue that the idea of articulation links three different dimensions of Stuart Hall's work: it is central to the work of cultural politics, to the work of hegemony and to his practice of embodied pedagogy. I claim that his approach to pedagogy entails the art of listening combined with the practice of theorising in the service…
