Naming the multiple : poststructuralism and education( )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poststructuralism - as a name for a mode of thinking, a style of philosophizing, a kind of writing - has exercised a profound influence upon contemporary Western thought and the institution of the university. As a French and predominantly Parisian affair, poststructuralism is inseparable from the intellectual milieu of postwar France, a world dominated by Alexandre Kojeve's and Jean Hyppolite's interpretations of Hegel, Jacques Lacan's reading of Freud, Gaston Bachelard's epistemology, George Canguilhem's studies of science, and Jean-Paul Sartre's existentialism. It is also inseparable from the "structuralist" tradition of linguistics based upon the work of Ferdinand de Saussure and Roman Jacobson, and the structuralist interpretations of Claude Levi-Strauss, Roland Barthes, Louis Althusser, and the early Michel Foucault. Each essay in this unique collection by and for educators is devoted to the work and educational significance of one of ten major poststructuralist philosophers
Of other thoughts : non-traditional ways to the doctorate : a guidebook for candidates and supervisors by A.-Chr. Engels-Schwarzpaul( )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a path-breaking critique of the traditions underpinning doctoral research. Working against the grain of traditional research orthodoxies, graduate researchers (almost all from Indigenous, transnational, diasporic, coloured, queer and ethnic minorities) AND their supervisors offer insights into non-traditional and emergent modes of research--transcultural, post-colonial, trans-disciplinary and creative practice-led. Through case studies and contextualizing essays, the book provides a unique guide to doctoral candidates and supervisors working with different modes of research. More radically, its questioning of traditional assumptions about the nature of the literature review, the genealogy of research practices, and the status and structuring of the thesis creates openings for alternative modes of researching. It gives our emerging researchers the courage to differ and challenges the University to take up its public role as critic and conscience of society
Pedagogy of the open society : knowledge and the governance of higher education by Michael Peters( )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social processes and policies that foster openness as an overriding value as evidenced in the growth of open source, open access and open education and their convergences that characterize global knowledge communities that transcend borders of the nation-state. Openness seems also to suggest political transparency and the norms of open inquiry, indeed, even democracy itself as both the basis of the logic of inquiry and the dissemination of its results. Openness is a value and philosophy that also offers us a means for transforming our institutions and our practices. This book examines the interface between learning, pedagogy and economy in terms of the potential of open institutions to transform and revitalize education in the name of the public good
The creative university by Michael Peters( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of the “Creative University” signals that higher education stands at the center of the creative economy indicating the growing significance of intellectual capital and innovation for economic growth and cultural development. Increasingly economic activity is socialised through new media and depends on immaterial and digital goods.0This immaterial economy includes new international labour markets that demand analytic skills, global competencies and an understanding of markets in tradeable knowledges. Delivery modes in education are being reshaped. Global cultures are spreading in the form of knowledge and research networks.0Openness, networking, cross-border people movement, flows of ideas, capital and scholars are changing the conditions of imagining and producing creative work. The economic aspect of creativity refers to the production of new ideas, aesthetic forms, scholarship, original works of art and cultural products, as well as scientific inventions and technological innovations. It embraces both open source communication as well as commercial intellectual property.0This collection explores these ideas as the basis for a new development agenda for universities

Individualism and community : education and social policy in the postmodern condition by Michael Peters( )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining, in the widest sense, the changes in political philosophy that have occurred in Western capitalist states since the early 1980s, this book focuses on the introduction of neo-liberal principles in the combined area of social and education policy.; New Zealand presents a paradigm example of the neo-liberal shift in political philosophy. From constituting the "social laboratory" of the Western world in the 1930s in terms of social welfare provision, New Zealand has become the neo-liberal "experiment" of the fully "marketised" society in the 1990s. Against the theoretical background of educational theory and practice, this book examines neo-liberalism and its critiques as responses to the so-called crisis of the welfare state and argues for a reformulated critical social policy in the postmodern condition. The conclusions about social policy drawn by the authors can be generalized to similar situations in other Western capitalist countries
Poststructuralism, Marxism, and neoliberalism : between theory and politics by Michael Peters( )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Re-imagining the creative university for the 21st century by Tina Besley( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creative university is a new concept that has a number of competing conceptions emphasizing digital teaching, learning and research infrastructures, the paradigm of intellectual property, creative social development and academic entrepreneurship. Not only does the concept include the fostering and critique of creative content industries and new forms of distance and online education but more fundamentally it refers to a reassessment of neoliberal strategies to build the knowledge economy. The economic aspect of creativity refers to the production of new ideas, aesthetic forms, scholarship, original works of art and cultural products, as well as scientific inventions and technological innovations. It embraces open source communication as well as commercial intellectual property. All of this positions education at the center of the economy/ creativity nexus. But are education systems, institutions, assumptions and habits positioned and able so as to seize the opportunities and meet the challenges? This book uses different contexts to explore these vital issues

Deconstructing Derrida : tasks for the new humanities( )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responding to Jacques Derrida's vision for what a 'new' humanities should strive toward, Peter Trifonas and Michael Peters gather together in a single volume original essays by major scholars in the humanities today. Using Derrida's seven programmatic theses as a springboard, the contributors aim to reimagine, as Derrida did, the tasks for the new humanities in such areas as history of literature, history of democracy, history of profession, idea of sovereignty, and history of man. Deconstructing Derrida engages Jacques Derrida's polemic on the future of the humanities to come and expands on the notion of what us proper to the humanities in the current age of globalism and change
Obama and the end of the American dream : essays in political and economic philosophy by Michael Peters( )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Dream that crystallized around James Truslow Adams' The Epic of America originally formulated in the early 1930s and was conditioned by a decade of complexity and contradiction, of big government projects, intensely fierce nationalism, the definition of the American way, and a distinctive collection of American iconic narratives has had the power and force to successively reshape America for every new generation. Indeed, Adam's dream of opportunity for each according to ability or achievement shaped against the old class culture of Europe emphasizes a vision of social order in whi
Subjectivity & truth : Foucault, education, and the culture of self by Tina Besley( )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on Foucault's later work and his (re)turn to 'the hermeneutics of the subject,' exploring the implications of his thinking for education, pedagogy, and related disciplines. What and who is the subject of education and what are the forms of self-constitution? Chapters investigate Foucault's notion of 'the culture of self' in relation to questions concerning truth (parrhesia or free speech) and subjectivity, especially with reference to the literary genres of confession and biography, and the contemporary political forms of individualization (governmentaltiy)."--BOOK JACKET
Poststructuralism and educational research by Michael Peters( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poststructuralism, and its implications for something called 'postmodernism, ' is a major topic of discussion in social theory and research generally, including educational research. The works of the major authors in this tradition (Foucault, Lyotard, Cixous, Derrida, Haraway, to name a few) are challenging and difficult. Yet more and more theorists and researchers in educational scholarship use this term to describe their work. What does poststructuralism mean for these authors, and what significance does it have for educational inquiry? This book takes on these central questions and explores
