Foucault and Contemporary Theory in Education Special Interest Group SIG 45

Part of the AARE. The American Educational Research Association (AERA), founded in 1916, is concerned with improving the educational process by encouraging scholarly inquiry related to education and evaluation and by promoting the dissemination and practical application of research results.

SIG Purpose
The Foucault and Contemporary Theory in Education SIG provides a forum for scholars and researchers interested in postmodern approaches to educational research. We are dedicated to historical and philosophical studies of education that engage the writings of Michel Foucault and the work of related/sympathetic contemporary theorists. We are interested in work that aims to identify and push the boundaries of Foucault’s and these other theortists’ thought and that which plays in the interstices between Foucault and these other theorists.
