GEDU 702 - Soc/Crit Theoretical Foundtns

Unit(s): 3

This seminar provides a social and critical theoretical foundation to the study of education. The aim of the course is to examine the ways that particular theorists have conceptualized 1) what education is, 2) how to characterize its social power and potential, and 3) how theory informs our research processes and praxis. The readings introduce students to philosophies and critiques of education as well as to broader social and political theories that challenge commonsense definitions of education as a whole with a specific focus on knowledge production, ideology, power, and agency.
