23 SES 11 B, Educational Work in Interdependent Times, Concept, Cases and Characteristics
This brief paper introduces the symposium. First it tracks our collaborative research program (Seddon, Henriksson and Niemeyer, 2009). This began by examining the way globalised neo-lliberal reforms have disturbed human service work (nursing, teaching, social work), problematised familiar occupational orderings, and relations between work and learning. It revealed transforming politics; a response to prevailing terms and conditions, which privileged individual interests and benefits, that built a ‘politics of we’ and affirmed and actively pursued human dignity and social justice. The paper uses two cases, one based on researcher as subject and the other based on re-reading South African commentaries, to theorise this transforming politics and the terms and conditions in which it develops. Key concepts include ‘a politics of we’, ‘spaces of orientation’, and ‘educational work’. The relationship between these concepts and the enactment of educational expertise highlights the way educational work supports moral and political projects that mobilise specific resources in order to yield learning that is oriented to particular valued ends.
