Hansen, Dion Rüsselbaek; Phelan, Anne M. – Research in Education, 2019
In this article we argue for the need to rethink the crisis of democracy both within and beyond education (Toft and Rüsselbaek Hansen, 2017). This crisis can be explained variously, depending on how it is understood and on what basis. From our point of view, and with inspiration from thinkers as Nietzsche, Arendt, Agamben and Rancière, we argue…

Belas, Oliver – Research in Education, 2019
Debate over subject curricula is apt to descend into internecine squabbles over which (whose?) curriculum is best. Especially so with school English, because its domain(s) of knowledge have commonly been misunderstood, or, perhaps, misrepresented in the government's programmes of study. After brief consideration of democratic education (problems…

Metcalfe, Amy Scott – Research in Education, 2019
In a research context marked by performance evaluation and knowledge commodification, attempts to visualize a future Knowledge University might be understood as a "politics of refusal" in that an emphasis on multimodality (image/text) confronts assumptions about the form of academic critique, calling into question the…
