2014 (English)In: Systems of reason and the politics of schooling: school reform and the politics of schooling in the thought of Thomas S. Popkewitz / [ed] Barry Franklin, Miguel Pereyra, New York: Routledge, 2014, 1, 220-234 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the reinstatement of community as a historical practice and governmental technology in contemporary political discourses of European Union (EU), and more specifically in the context of higher education including the education and training of teachers in the Nordic countries. Our focus is not educational policy as a base for ways of thinking about and organising education in Europe, but as a base for ways of thinking about and constructing Europe as a community (Nóvoa, 2004; Larner & Walters, 2004). To do this we use a genealogical method inspired by Michael Foucault, exploring the system of reasoning that orders contemporary political discourses and policies in the early 19th and the turn of the 21st Century (Foucault, 2004).
