Inverting minority rule? Neoliberal governmentality, schooling, and the city

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper is an attempt to engage with, and provide some ways of making sense of, neoliberalism, not only as a ‘global concept’, but also as historically and geographically distinct and contingent in relation to urban schooling. It is a paper concerned with the empirical and conceptual limits to neoliberalism in relation to the Global North and South. In the first part of the paper we identify how rationales for school choice are both similar and distinct in countries like England and South Africa. In the second part of the paper we extend this idea of neoliberal specificity, by examining neoliberal governmentality and neoliberal globalisation in relation to the Global North and South. We do this as a way to engage with the possible geographical and historical limitations of neoliberalism in educational studies in urban settings. We caution against the universal application of conceptual approaches developed in the Northern world to understand complex social process across the entire globe; and tentatively argue against ‘minority rule’ type readings of contingent socialities in Southern contexts.
