Synopsis

This collection examines education in the light of a politics of becoming. It takes a non-hierarchical transdisciplinary approach, challenging the macropolitics of pre-established governmental and economic agendas for education. Drawing on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, the contributors consider questions such as how education might engage a politics of becoming, and how education and becoming function in a society of control. Since Deleuze and Guattari contend that a society is defined by its becomings, its transformations, this collection asks how education, itself a process in becoming, may contribute "collective creations" to a society in continual flux. The chapters bring theory and praxis together, deploying power, affect, cartography, space, relationality, assemblage and multiple literacies in order to experiment with music, art, language, teacher education, curriculum and policy studies. This collection is an innovative resource, creating an encounter with the macropolitics of education, and altering teaching, learning, evaluation and curriculum.

This book was originally published as a special issue of Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education.

David R Cole is an Associate Professor at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. He is a trained philosopher and educational thinker, concerned with opening up new modes of thought.

David's latest monograph is called: Educational Life-forms: Deleuzian Teaching and Learning Practice.
