Cultural History and Education
Critical Essays on Knowledge and Schooling
Cultural History and Education brings together an outstanding group of the 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.
Thomas Popkewitz teaches at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Barry Franklin at the University of Michigan-Flint, and Miguel Pereyra at University of Granada.
"A diverse collection of readings by scholars from three continents, this book develops a "cultural history" of education, the term being used to denote a Foucauldian, postmodern analysis of educational phenomena as cultural practices ... The authors reject prevailing explanations - historicist, neo-Marxist, among others - as simplistic." -- The Journal of Educational Thought
