Wittgenstein

BRITISH WITTGENSTEIN SOCIETY (BWS) LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN LECTURE SERIES (LWLS)

The Ninth BWS Lecture will be delivered by Professor Paul Standish (Institute of Education, London)

Title: On Being Resolute (see abstract below)

At the University of Hertfordshire, De Havilland Campus, Room R110

Friday 23 November 2012 at 5 pm (a wine reception will follow)

Paul Standish is Professor of Philosophy of Education. He is concerned in his work particularly with questions in ethics and education. Author of the excellent Beyond the Self: Wittgenstein, Heidegger, and the limits of language (Ashgate 1992), Professor Standish is interested in the relation between Analytical and Continental philosophy and the productive tensions of that relation. He is co-editor of the Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Education (2002) and of Stanley Cavell and the Education of Grownups (Fordham UP, 2011).

Abstract: On Being Resolute

A striking feature of Wittgenstein studies over the past decade or so has been debate over therapeutic readings of the texts, especially insofar as these extend backwards to include the Tractatus. “Resolute reading” has become the term of choice for at least some advocates of this view. Opponents of claims of this kind typically take issue not only over questions concerning the continuity of Wittgenstein’s thought but over the nature and possibilities of philosophy itself. Exchanges between the two camps – insofar as they can reasonably be identified in this way – have been lively, engaging, and sometimes insightful, but not always enlightening. To those on the outside, such debates can readily appear overly introspective, and this can muffle the sense of the wider importance of his philosophy. The discussion of Wittgenstein starts from issues that are critical to that importance, but in some respects these are obscured by aspects of the ensuing debate.

My discussion examines the implications of the adoption of the term “resolute” in this literature in the light of the provenance of therapeutic readings. It also turns beyond this towards a consideration of the significance of the virtue the term names for the reception of Wittgenstein more widely. This involves a return to questions regarding language and what it is to follow a rule.

The event is free, but registration is required. Please email bws@herts.ac.uk

Teaching Marx

TEACHING MARX: THE SOCIALIST CHALLENGE

Announcing a forthcoming book: Teaching Marx: The Socialist Challenge

Edited by Curry Stephenson Malott, Mike Cole and John Elmore

To be published by Information Age Publishing

Critical Construction: Studies in Education and Society, see: http://www.infoagepub.com/series/critical-constructions

Series Editor: Curry Stephenson Malott, West Chester University

“There is growing disillusionment with a social system where increasing productivity leads only to increased gaps between rich and poor, where reductions in social programs (retirement, health care, education) are the chief response an uninspired political sector can muster, and where non-sustainable exploitation of the Earth continues undiminished — in short, as the looming, world-wide economic crisis draws nearer, the essays in Teaching Marx: The Socialist Challengeare critical reading. It is time for our teachers to prepare students not to take their place in an increasingly corrupt economy, but to bring about the fundamental changes we need to build an equitable, prosperous, sustainable future” — Dr. Dennis Vickers, Humanities Department, College of Menominee Nation, Keshena, Wisconsin.

Curry Malott

Teaching Marx: The Socialist Challenge is an extraordinarily important text at this juncture of world history. Functioning as more than just another pedagogical weapon to be used against the ideological structures of death and social hallucinogenics manufactured by the transnational capitalist class, it is a book that can provide fecund opportunities for teachers to re-learn how to put social and economic justice front and center in the agenda for educational reform by putting Marx front and center, where he belongs” — Peter McLaren, Professor, UCLA and author of Che Guevara, Paulo Freire and the Pedagogy of Revolution

Teaching Marx: The Socialist Challenge provides a useful starting point for understanding the origins of today’s global crisis of capitalism. Our work in public schools to encourage respectful dialogues between Indian and non-Indian students about local conflicts over land ownership, through the TERRA Institute, should encourage cooperative action to find common interests. This book reminds us to move those specific discussions to explorations of the causes of conflicts over land, including the imperatives of global capitalism” — David Stanfield, TERRA Institute, www.terrainstitute.org

“As this book so clearly and illustratively points out, the work of Marx has always served as a critical tool for identifying and scraping away the residue of commodity relations as a means to an end of revolutionary purpose, and teaching Marx is therefore keynote to education becoming able to serve as a tool of liberation and revolution. The reasons for why this is so are very clear in the book. As its authors successively and in detail clearly point out, we are ‘educated’ to believe that we live in a meritocracy where god-given abilities and hard work afford position and reward, and the work of social institutions like the school play a key part in this. These institutions, as ideological apparatuses of the State, barrage us with propaganda and bombard us with ideas inside practices that are designed to convince us all that at the head of the equation of the constitution of the social and economic order is the work, skills, ideas, knowledge and commitment of individual people themselves and that the effort and competences of these individuals determine social position and the possibilities for economic reward and even social justice for all.

Mike Cole

Put directly and simply, the book shows us how the public has been hoodwinked by the school and other social institutions to believe in the ethics of capitalism and its central ideological tenet that the present social order is natural and in the end inevitable and beneficial for us all. However, as well as critiquing the work of the school as an instrument of reproduction, the book also shows how and why the education system could and should challenge the anti-democratic perspectives that disguise and defend the current social relations of production and the ideological and material needs of the capitalist class. It offers that is an educational challenge to the inevitability and “correctness” of capitalism by showing how its laws can be made visible to ordinary people so the oppressive power of the capitalist class can be more correctly identified, challenged and defeated.  In this way the book both poses the question and provides answers concerning what role education can play in a possible future revolutionary moment: both as a “true” education as an act of liberation and as a dialectic lens for critiquing the world in which we live. Used appropriately the book can become a clear and fundamental ingredient for helping to create the possibilities for a more egalitarian and socially just world” — Dennis Beach, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

“This collection by Malott, Cole and Elmore’s is a very timely contribution to the current revival of Marxism in education. The authors engage seriously with the ideas of Marx – from his theory of capitalist crises to the increasing impoverishment of the working class – and debunk many of the commonly held myths about Marxism. The compilation of writings provide a devastating rejoinder to those who believe that we can only make changes within the present system and show how this crisis has made discussion of socialist alternatives, in education and society, an urgent necessity. They argue that, in Marx’s words, the educators need to get educated and find ways – through their students, through what they teach, and through their political activism – to feed into wider movements of social change” — Marnie Holborow, author on Marxism and Language, Dublin City University, Ireland.

Marxism and Education

MARXIAN ANALYSIS OF SOCIETY, SCHOOL AND EDUCATION SIG #157(MASSES) – AERA 2013 

American Educational Research Association

Annual Meeting

San Francisco, California

April 27 – May 1, 2013

 

Marxian Analysis of Society, School and Education SIG #157

CALL FOR PAPERS

AERA 2013

The global financial crisis detonated in the West in 2007 has highlighted long-standing structural faults within capitalism, especially in its financialization of the economy – something that Marx and his predecessors already predicted. The current economic genocidal policies in nations such as Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Cyprus, along with the bailouts to specific US corporations, and the slow down of China’s ‘new economy’, present a credibility check in the recognition of the predatory policies and practices of capitalism’s third hegemonic momentum. In fact such financialization of the economy, with its the recurrent and increasingly devastating financial debacles assailing the world’s capitalist economies, has been incapable of producing sustainable growth in any sector while creating economic genocide, and has resulted in driving societies towards social foreclosures strong-armed through painful strangulation of austerity policies that are asphyxiating public institutions and transforming the very notion of public good and democracy itself!

The 2013 Marxian Analysis of Society, School and Education SIG program asks scholars, educators and graduate students around the globe who are profoundly committed to the struggle for social and cognitive justice to help us examine the transformative role of education and schools in addressing the contemporary crises, as well as, addressing the role of educators in helping to resolve the contradictions of the present and to contribute to a better future for schools, education and society.

Therefore, we ask scholars, educators and graduate students to contribute papers, posters or symposium that utilize a Marxist/Class analysis that will critically address the impact of the late capitalism’s financialization of the economy on questions of schools, education and society and how to move from pre-history to history proper to create a more and just democratic society and education.

Note: All submissions will be reviewed without author identification.

Please submit them without author names on the abstracts or summaries.

Proposals that bear the names of the authors and/or participants will not be considered for review and, consequently, will not be considered for the SIG #157 program for the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting.

Thank You, Dr. Sheila Macrine, 2013 Program Chair

FIXED ABILITY THINKING – CALL FOR PAPERS

CALL FOR PAPERS for a Special issue of FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education

Fixed Ability’ Thinking, and Ability-based Practices in English Schools

This Special Issue of FORUM (www.wwwords.co.uk/FORUM) will re-examine the enduring problem of ‘fixed-ability’ thinking, and ability-based practices in English schools. FORUM board members are increasingly concerned about the way the language of ‘ability’ pervades current thinking about teaching and learning, and the proliferation of divisive approaches to curriculum, assessment and the grouping of children and young people.

It is time to revisit and strengthen our professional understanding of the deep and lasting educational damage caused by ‘fixed-ability’ thinking and practices. We invite readers to contribute compelling accounts of alternative approaches to teaching and learning, free from determinist assumptions about ‘ability’ and from the belief that there are knowable and predictable limits to each child’s learning capacity.

We hope to publish this Special Issue as the first number of 2013, so ask that all final contributions (3000-6000 words) be received no later than 14 December 2012.

Those wishing to contribute should in the first instance contact Mary Jane Drummond: maryjdrummond@yahoo.co.uk

John Dewey

FIFTH ANNUAL EDUCATIONAL THEORY SUMMER INSTITUTE

The Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership at the Universityof Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and the journal Educational Theory are pleased to announce the Fifth Annual Educational Theory Summer Institute.

Scholars in educational philosophy and theory from around the world will be invited to a three-day Institute to carry out a focused research project that will be published as a special issue of the journal Educational Theory. The journal will cover participants’ travel and lodging expenses and provide meals throughout the event. We hope that this Summer Institute provides a valuable opportunity for scholars to collaborate with each other and to interact with faculty and students from the University of Illinois, as well as other neighboring institutions.

Groups of scholars who are interested in participating should submit a prospectus for a project, which will be evaluated by University of Illinois faculty and, where appropriate, invited outside experts. The project that is selected will normally comprise 6-8 paper proposals, depending on the length of the papers. Draft versions of these papers will need to be completed before the Institute, so that colleagues at Illinois and other participants can review the materials before the invited scholars arrive. During the three-day visit, there will be closed sessions, limited to the proposal authors and a very small number of University of Illinois colleagues, to discuss the papers in a workshop format, providing critical and constructive feedback, considering the papers in relation to each other, and discussing how best to craft the set of papers as a collection for a special issue of Educational Theory. There will also be open sessions, where participants formally present their work as individual papers or in a panel format; these sessions will be open to anyone who wishes to attend, including students. The goal of the Institute is to have a focused set of conversations around the papers and the larger issues they raise.

We believe that the Summer Institute will be of great benefit to the invitees, to receive feedback on their work, to work with each other, and to get a chance to interact withUniversity ofIllinois colleagues. The result, we expect, will be a set of papers that are of high quality and more closely integrated with each other than is typical of most edited collections. Separate publication as a book may be a possibility.

 

Themes

We want to keep the scope of possible submissions broad, but any submission should relate philosophical and/or theoretical perspectives to a prevailing issue of educational research, policy or practice. This does not mean that only narrowly “applied” work will be considered. But the evaluation of the proposals will bear upon not only the quality of the papers as scholarly pieces; the salience and timeliness of the issues addressed will also be an important factor.

Deadlines

We request that all submissions be sent electronically to: EdTheory@illinois.edu by January 21, 2013. A decision will be made by February 11, 2013. The current dates for the Institute are August 19-21, 2013.

Application Process

Interested participants should submit the following materials:

(1) An overall description and rationale for the collection, roughly 1000 words, which highlights the significance and potential impact of the project;

(2) A list of the authors, with brief bios, and titles of the proposed papers along with an abstract for each of 750 words, including an estimated word length (the total word length of all the completed papers should not exceed 50,000 words, including footnotes);

(3) A letter from each participant promising that if the project is selected they will complete and submit a draft version of their paper by July 29, 2013, they will commit to attending the full three-day Institute at Illinois, and they will agree to have their paper published by Educational Theory as part of the symposium.

Eligibility

There are no restrictions on participants, though the total number of participants should not exceed eight. Due to length restrictions for a journal issue, the total number of articles should also not exceed eight. Co-authored papers are acceptable, but in such cases it may be necessary to designate one representative for on-site participation. Students, writing individually or as co-authors with other contributors, are not excluded from eligibility. Submissions that include international scholars are welcomed. Previous applicants are eligible to revise and resubmit earlier proposals, without prejudice.

Direct any questions to the Editor of Educational Theory, Nicholas Burbules (burbules@illinois.edu).
