Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This paper discusses Butler's theory on the possibility of precarity to serve as the nexus of ethical relations, while also exploring some of the pitfalls of her theorization to reconceptualize the pedagogical implications of a "critical pedagogy for precarity." In particular, the paper asks: How can precarity--understood as an…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This article tries to defend the position that Holocaust Education can be enriched by appreciating laughter and humor as critical and transformative forces that not only challenge dominant discourses about the Holocaust and its representational limits, but also reclaim humanity, ethics, and difference from new angles and juxtapositions.

Kuntz, Aaron M.; Petrovic, John E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
In this article we consider the material dimensions of schooling as constitutive of the possibilities inherent in "fixing" education.

Saur, Ellen; Sidorkin, Alexander M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This article is the result of a mutual interest in the radical philosophical dialogue discussed by Martin Buber. The radical dialogue is rooted in western European values of humanism, values that are challenged because they exclude women, people with disabilities, non-western, indigenous people and sexual minorities. With our basis in radical…

Jessop, Sharon – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In recent years, culture has become significantly politicized, or conspicuously de-politicized, in different parts of the UK, making its appearance in education policy of pivotal interest and ripe for critical attention. From the vantage point of Theodor Adorno's work on the culture industry and his writings on the work of the teacher, I argue…

Lewin, David – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
Is physical presence an essential aspect of a rich educational experience? Can forms of virtual encounter achieve engaged and sustained education?

Feinberg, Walter – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
In this essay I explore the potential that ethnographic methods hold for philosophy of education as a form of critical pragmatism. An aim of critical pragmatism is to help to analyze the roadblocks to fruitful communication, coordination and liberation. It does so by identifying their sources and opportunities for repair. As I have argued…

Webb, Darren – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
Hoping is an integral part of what it is to be human, and its significance for education has been widely noted. Hope is, however, a contested category of human experience and getting to grips with its characteristics and dynamics is a difficult task. The paper argues that hope is not a singular undifferentiated experience and is best understood as…

Burman, Erica – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
This paper critically evaluates the ways we look to children to educate us and explores how we might depart from that dynamic, exploring how a range of conceptual frameworks from historical and cultural studies and psychoanalysis might contribute to understanding the problematic of childhood, its problems and its limitations. While "child as…

Pedersen, Helena – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
What happens to education when the potential it helps realizing in the individual works against the formal purposes of the curriculum? What happens when education becomes a vehicle for its own subversion? As a subject-forming state apparatus working on ideological speciesism, formal education is engaged in both human and animal stratification in…
