Critical theories in education : changing terrains of knowledge and politics by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 libraries worldwide
This book examines critical theories in education research from various points of view in order to critique the relations of power and knowledge in education and schooling practices. It addresses social injustices in the field of education, while at the same time questioning traditional standards of critical theory. Drawing on recent social and literary criticism, this collection identifies conversations across disciplines that address the theoretical and methodological challenges in educational debate. Critical Theories in Education offers a rethinking of Marxist theories of education, joining issues of teaching and pedagogy with issues of the state and economy, social movements, literary criticism, pragmatism and postcolonialism. --From publisher's description

Inventing the modern self and John Dewey : modernities and the traveling of pragmatism in education by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )
24 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 432 libraries worldwide
"In a new book edited by Thomas S. Popkewitz, scholars representing twelve nations provide original chapters to explore the epistemic features and cultural theses figured in Dewey's writings as they assembled in the discourses of public schooling. The significance of Dewey in the book is not about Dewey as the messenger of pragmatism, but in locating different cultural, political, and educational terrains in which debates about modernity, the modern self, and the making of the citizen occurred."--BOOK JACKET
Struggling for the soul : the politics of schooling and the construction of the teacher by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )
9 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 380 libraries worldwide
This book presents information from a study of Teach for America, an alternative teacher education program that recruits and trains people with degrees in fields other than education to work in urban and rural schools with chronic teacher shortages, poverty, and minority students. The book is an effort to understand how different discourses of pedagogy come together to generate principles for participation and action. It is an ethnography about the classification of the "urbanness" and "ruralness" of children as a space in which they can never be "of the average." This book challenges certain notions about policy research, evaluation, and teaching. The six chapters are as follows: (1) "The Spatial Politics of Urban and Rural Education: Constructing a Critical Ethnography"; (2)"The Soul as the Achievement of Teaching: The Social Space of the Urban and Rural Child"; (3) "The Alchemies of Pedagogy: From Ethical Registers to Psychological Registers"; (4) "The Wisdom of Teacher Practice as a Normalizing Technology"; (5) "Alchemy, Imaginary School Subjects, and the Governing of Space"; and (6) "The Spatial Politics of Knowledge and the Racialization of Teaching." The book contains an appendix and references. (Sm)

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 350 libraries worldwide
"Focusing on comparative examination of educational reforms, this book explores the relation of state practices and educational knowledge to changes in culture and economics among nations." "Educational Knowledge brings neo-Marxist theories, world systems, and post-modern cultural and political theories into a conversation about the changes that are occurring in the educational arena. This book will interest not only specialists in the field of education studying educational reform, but also economists, political scientists, sociologists, and comparative historians who examine the functioning of education within the larger context of modernization."--Jacket
Cultural history and education : critical essays on knowledge and schooling by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 331 libraries worldwide
This volume brings together a group of leading scholars in the study of the cultural history of education. These scholars, whose work represents a variety of national contexts from throughout Europe, Latin America, and North America, contribute to a growing body of work that seeks to re-think historical studies in education by integrating the study of knowledge systems, otherwise known as "discourses" into traditional intellectual history. The articles included investigate how these discourses "construct, shape, coordinate, and constitute social practices through which individuals reason about their participation and identity", in the words of Popkewitz. The collection challenges the field of historical studies in education to move away from the historicism that still dominates it, and thus introduces new ways to think about the politics of knowledge and the problems of change and reform in education
Cosmopolitanism and the age of school reform : science, education, and making society by making the child by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )
23 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 311 libraries worldwide
In Cosmopolitanism and the Age of School Reform, noted educationalist Thomas Popkewitz explores turn-of-the-century and contemporary pedagogical reforms while illuminating their complex relation to cosmopolitanism. Popkewitz highlights how policies that include "all children" and leave "no child behind" are rooted in a philosophy of cosmopolitanism-not just in salvation themes of human agency, freedom, and empowerment, but also in the processes of abjection and the differentiation of the disadvantaged, urban, and child left behind as "Other."

Educational partnerships and the state : the paradoxes of governing schools, children, and families by Barry M Franklin( Book )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 244 libraries worldwide
Educational Partnerships and the State is a compelling collection of essays by an international group of scholars that provides a critical exploration of the role of partnerships in contemporary educational reform. Their focus is on the expanding role that collaboration between the public and private sector has come to play in the governing of schools, children, and families in response to an array of worldwide economic and social changes. The contributors to this volume highlight the new relationship between civil society and the state through partnerships and what that linkage has come to mean for an array of educational issues including academic achievement, school governance, school parent-relationships, teacher education, the construction of family and community involvement, and the discourses of reform as practices that order participation and action
Education research and policy : steering the knowledge-based economy ( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
This volume considers the ways in which educational research is being shaped by policy across the globe. Policy effects on research are increasingly influential, as policies in and beyond education drive the formation of a knowledge-based economy by supporting increased international competitiveness through more effective, evidence-based interventions in schooling, education and training systems. What consequences does this increased steering have for research in education? How do transnational agencies make their influence felt on educational research? How do national systems

Schooling and the making of citizens in the long nineteenth century : comparative visions by Daniel Tröhler( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 90 libraries worldwide
This book is a comparative history that explores the social, cultural, and political formation of the modern nation through the construction of public schooling. It asks how modern school systems arose in a variety of different republics and non-republics across four continents during the period from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth century. The authors begin with the republican preoccupation with civic virtue--the need to overcome self-interest in order to take up the common interest--which requires a form of education that can produce individuals who are capable of self-guided rational action for the public good. They then ask how these educational preoccupations led to the emergence of modern school systems in a disparate array of national contexts, even those that were not republican. By examining historical changes in republicanism across time and space, the authors explore central epistemologies that connect the modern individual to community and citizenship through the medium of schooling. Ideas of the individual were reformulated in the nineteenth century in reaction to new ideas about justice, social order, and progress, and the organization and pedagogy of the school turned these changes into a way to transform the self into the citizen
