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 held by 455 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 430 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."--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 377 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)

Cosmopolitanism and the age of school reform : science, education, and making society by making the child by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )
24 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."

15 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 247 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

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 226 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
