The Relationship between Supervisor and Doctoral Student: Lasting Longer than an Average Marrige in Sweden
2006 (English)In: "The future is not what it appears to be": pedagogy, genealogy and political epistemology : in honor and in memory of Kenneth Hultqvist / [ed] Thomas S. Popkewitz, Stockholm: HLS Förlag , 2006, 84-104 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This book honors and is in memorial to Kenneth Hultqvist who helped initiate the broader research project to which this volume contributes. This book examines changes in the politics of knowledge in modern social life. The contributors provide important interventions in contemporary discussions about power, change, and the challenges that were raised in the Enlightenment about knowledge, reason, and the possibilities of humanity. The studies in the book examine a range of social programs and educational reforms to understand their implications, assumptions and consequences. Firstly, the chapters contribute to an international discussion on the historical relationships between social change, political rationalities, and the technologies of the self in a range of social life that included pedagogy. Secondly, the book offers new ways of studying and understanding the relation of the welfare state, social and education sciences, and today’s configurations of liberal governing. Thirdly, the discussion brings into focus and critiques the distinctions of social and educational theories that differentiate “context” and programs, divides discourse from the “real”, separates the subjective and objective and the personal and the public, and disconnects civil society from the state “reason” in modern government.
