Ideology, curriculum, and the new sociology of education

Revisiting the Work of Michael Apple

Lois Weis, Cameron R McCarthy, Greg Dimitriadis

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

For more than three decades Michael Apple has sought to uncover and articulate the connections among knowledge, teaching and power in education. Beginning with Ideology and Curriculum (1979), Apple moved to understand the relationship between and among the economy, political and cultural power in society on the one hand “and the ways in which education is thought about, organized and evaluated“ on the other. This edited collection invites several of the world's leading education scholars to reflect on the relationships between education and power and the continued impact of Apple's scholarship. Like Apple's work itself, the essays will span a range of disciplines and inequalities; emancipatory educational practices; and the linkage between the economy and race, class and gender formation in relation to schools.
