Cultural Production of the Educated Person: Critical Ethnographies of Schooling and Local Practice

Overview

Eleven historical-ethnographic case studies examine the social and cultural projects of modern schools, and the contestations, dramatic and not, that emerge in and around and against them. These case studies, ranging from Taiwan to South Texas, build upon an original joining of anthropology, critical education theory, and cultural studies. The studies advance the concept of cultural production as a way of understanding the dynamics of power and identity formation underlying different forms of "education." Using the concept of the "educated person" as a culture-specific construct, the authors examine conflicts and points of convergence between cultural practices and knowledges that are produced in and out of schools.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Encompassing a wide range of cultures, explores schools as sites for the cultural production of the educated person, the education person in competing sites of cultural production, and the educated person in state discourse and local practice. The topics include batch-produced children in France and the US, creating a Chicano worldview through schooling, producing biologists at school and work, school culture versus the subjectivity of youth in Taiwan, student resistance in Bolivian teacher training, and schools in the hills of Nepal. Together the 12 essays provide a groundbreaking comparative study. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
