Analysing Diversity in Education Historically: Achievements, Boundaries and BarriersRead more
NW 17 Histories of Education
Diversity has always been an inherent feature of society, however differently framed and conceptualised over time, and education has always been confronted with it. Diversity, then, constitutes a powerful prism, offering sensitivity to sociocultural configurations and imaginaries, governing mechanisms, technologies etc. used in the identification or re/production of sameness and difference. Analysing diversity in education historically not only draws attention to continuities and discontinuities in how it has been addressed and why and when it became an object of thought. It also raises awareness around a variety of approaches to data/sources, methods, theories, and sites of conservation and regulation.
