Free 1 Day Conference
29 January 2014, ICOSS, University of Sheffield

Title:  ‘Foucault and Education: retrospect and prospect

Conveners:  Ansgar Allen & Wilfred Carr; Keynotes: Erica Burman & Stephen Ball

empty audienceOverview:  This conference will critically review the extended impact of Michel Foucault on educational research. Educational researchers have made frequent use of Foucault’s ideas, concepts and perspectives. The common assumption that Foucault ‘would have something to say’ or that the Foucauldian perspective must have something to offer, has brought Foucault into the educational canon. This conference will examine the costs of this widespread adoption, for Foucault, his ethos, and for educational research.
