What is to be done? The official view – and the discourse through which that view is articulated – is shown in this book to be weighty and vacuous at the same time – a massively ponderous discursive absurdity. Consequently, this book goes on to offer wide ranging and serious strategies of resistance
The book encourages faculty and students in universities and partner institutions involved in teaching, training, and/or carrying out research in all areas of education. It will appeal to staff and students involved in training for compulsory and post-compulsory/vocational education and lifelong learning, and to lecturers in all areas of Higher Education with an interest in issues of policy and identity formation.
The contributors are David Selby, Cheryl Hunt, Christina Schwabenland, Eileen Honan, Mhairi Mackie, James Avis, Anne-Marie Bathmaker, Yota Dimitriadi, and Michael Watts.
