Britzman, Deborah P. – Educational Theory, 2017
The preceding symposium articles speculate on the psychosocial dynamics of discrimination as reverberating with grief, mourning, melancholia, and denial.

Sarigianides, Sophia Tatiana – Educational Theory, 2017
Recent applications of Freud's theory examine the social value of the lost love object as a way of understanding the suffering of non-majority groups. Rather than pathologizing the individual suffering the loss, the lens of racial melancholia pathologizes the discourse that constitutes racially marked others as alien to the majority. Through a…

Stillwaggon, James – Educational Theory, 2017
The progressive language of growth and development that informs our shared ideal of the educated subject also informs the curricular structure of schooling, in which new learning builds upon established knowledge and students' development depends upon their desire to take on those identities associated with various achievements of knowledge. Each…

Backer, David I. – Educational Theory, 2017
In a majority of cases observed in classrooms over the last several decades, what has gone by the name "discussion" is not discussion, but rather an interaction better known as recitation. If one sees this phenomenon as a problem, then an aspect of its resolution must be theoretical (as opposed to empirical or pedagogical): What series…

Taubman, Peter – Educational Theory, 2017
In this response essay, Peter Taubman considers the relationship between melancholia and Freud's notion of a death drive.

Taubman concludes…

In education, we are concerned with the teaching and learning of subjects, but the word "subject" can refer to the discipline being studied as well as the individual who is studying.

Taylor, Ashley – Educational Theory, 2017
Disability studies in education scholars have discussed the need to engage students, and certainly preservice teachers, in critical discussion of disability as a concept.

Kennedy, David – Educational Theory, 2017
In this essay David Kennedy argues that children represent one vanguard of an emergent shift in Western subjectivity, and that adult-child dialogue, especially in the context of schooling, is a key locus for the epistemological change that implies. Following Herbert Marcuse's invocation of a "new sensibility," Kennedy argues that the…

Diehl, David – Educational Theory, 2017
"Disenchantment" has been a popular trope in the social sciences since Max Weber's appropriation of the term nearly a century ago. In recent years, however, scholars have come to argue that, in contrast to the standard modernization story of unabated rationalization, organizations have long been subject to countervailing forces. In this…

Johansson, Viktor – Educational Theory, 2017
What happens if we think of children's play as a form of great art that we turn to and return to for inspiration, for education? If we can see play as art, then what and how can we learn from children's play or from playing with them? What can philosophy, or philosophers, learn from children's play? In this essay Viktor Johansson gives examples of…
