Lindell, Ingrid – Educational Theory, 2020
Contemporary Western educational systems have been described as a landscape of control and assessment meant to make education, in Gert J. J.

Ekholm, Christer – Educational Theory, 2020
Christer Ekholm's point of departure in this article is Gert J. J. Biesta's call for a new pedagogical attitude that takes a stand against the current trend in education.

Öhman, Anders – Educational Theory, 2020

Enstedt, Daniel – Educational Theory, 2020
The world religions paradigm (WRP), often regarded as hegemonic in research and education in religious studies, has long been criticized for being modeled on predominantly Protestant, Christian, and Western ideas about religion, and thus running the risk of reductionism and of a failure to recognize expressions of religion that do not fit this…

Mikulan, Petra; Rudder, Adam – Educational Theory, 2019
This discussion begins from the speculation that evaluating formulations of life has become one of the leading prerogatives of "novel" turns to matter, materiality, and the posthuman. However, "moving" with the Other (rather than simply representing them) has proven a difficult task for scholars in education concerned with…

Zipory, Oded – Educational Theory, 2019
In this essay, Oded Zipory assigns a different meaning to presentism in education: one that signifies respect for the present, especially for the actual student in his here-and-now.
