Social justice leadership and inclusion: a genealogy (2016)

The purpose of this article is to engage in an historical analysis of research about two concepts: social justice leadership and leadership for inclusion. Recent experiences have caused me to wonder about our interpretations of justice, equity, and inclusion. Analysis of the relevant literature revealed a lack of consensus among scholars as to a clear, operational definition of both social justice leadership and inclusion. I use a Foucauldian genealogical method to examine texts and uncover the historical development of social justice leadership and leadership for inclusion in the United States. Uncovering past meanings and contexts should help illuminate current meanings and uses of these concepts. It is recommended that leaders engage in critical reflection to uncover the common sense language of equity-oriented leadership practices and that researchers take a more critical, historical, open stance of social justice leadership, and inclusion. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.

Michel Foucault dedicated a significant part of his works to the study of political economy. In the late 1980s, these analyses attracted the interest of historians of economic thought (Amariglio, 1988, 1900; Birken, 1990). The primary purpose of this article is to provide a review survey of Foucault’s reception among historians of economic thought. Reading and interpreting Foucault is not straightforward. In reflecting on his work, Foucault refused to consider himself an “author” who could be characterized by a single, consistent framework. However, he elaborated a coherent historiographical method which we characterize as politically engaged journalism. The principles of that method allow us to identify two common confusions in interpretations of Foucault’s work. First, advocates of Foucault in the history of economic thought literature consider him a “heterodox economist” who would be opposed to “mainstream economics”. However, Foucault did not intend to criticize economic theories in this particular sense. The second source of confusion involves interpreting Foucault as a sociologist interested in the analysis of power, or a social historian, although he rejected context-based historiographical approaches. We would suggest that Foucault she be considered more a “postmodernist philosopher” than a historian of economic thought per se. In this respect, the association of “Foucauldian theory” with postmodernism is a major distortion in his reception by historians of economic thought.

Interrupting the Psy-Disciplines in Education (2016)

by Clare O'Farrell
petersenBendix Petersen, Eva, Millei, Zsuzsa (Eds.), Interrupting the Psy-Disciplines in Education, Palgrave Macmillan, 2016
This book offers critical explorations of how the psy-disciplines, Michel Foucault’s collective term for psychiatry, psychology and psycho-analysis, play out in contemporary educational spaces. With a strong focus on Foucault’s theories, it critically investigates how the psy-disciplines continue to influence education, both regulating and shaping behaviour and morality. The book provides insight into different educational contexts and concerns across a child’s educational lifespan; early childhood education, inclusive education, special education, educational leadership, social media, university, and beyond to enable reflection and critique of the implications of psy-based knowledge and practice.
With chapters by a mixture of established and emerging international scholars in the field this is an interdisciplinary and authoritative study into the role of the psy-disciplines in the education system. Providing vivid illustrations from throughout the educational lifespan the book serves as an invaluable tool for reflection and critique of the implications of psy-based practice, and will be of particular interest to academics and scholars in the field of education policy and psychology.

La denominada rehabilitación de la praxis aristotélica en la filosofía continental durante el sigo pasado, comienza con Martin Heidegger para replicarse luego en otros filósofos y corrientes de pensamiento, entra los que se puede mencionar: Hans-Georg Gadamer, Hannah Arendt, Paul Ricoeur, Jürgen Habermas –especialmente en Conocimiento e interés–. La expresión “rehabilitación de la filosofía práctica” se debe al libro del mismo nombre compilado por el alemán Manfred Riedel y publicado en dos volúmenes en 1972 y 1974 respectivamente. Es necesario aclarar que esta rehabilitación no consiste...

Con una sola obra, “To-morrow: a Peaceful Path to Real Reform” escrita en 1898 y reescrita en 1902 como “Garden cities of Tomorrow”, “Ciudades jardín del mañana”, Ebenezer Howard logró una obra fundamental del nuevo modelo de urbanismo de principios de siglo XX y que influiría posteriormente en el concepto de ciudad suburbana a partir de la década de los cuarenta

In this paper, I intend to show how our reading changes when the results of systematic excavations of considerable extension are taken as a starting point and written sources are subject to rigorous internal criticism. The archaeological results suggest in recent times that Inca imperial policies completely transformed the landscape of the Lurín valley. The re-organization involved not only the construction of new settlements for populations moved from elsewhere in the highlands and possibly the coast, but also the creation of new ceremonial sites. As expected, the largest building...

This essay presents and justifies the translation strategy of a translation from Spanish to English of the webpages describing the permanent collection at MALI (Museo de Arte de Lima), a collection of art spanning 3,000 years at an art museum in Lima, Peru, as well as presenting a brief quality assessment of that translation. The translation strategy draws on Hans J. Vermeer´s skopos theory and Peter Newmark´s theory of communicative translation, with a modification to include the need to take into account the pragmatics of museum texts. An ST-TT function contrastive analysis, combining...

While Levinas famously claims that ethics precedes ontology and emanates from the concrete experience of the other's face, it is often forgotten that Deleuze also discusses the face in numerous writings. The purpose of this paper is to briefly outline Levinas's arguments regarding the constitution of the face to chart its ethical importance, before engaging with Deleuze's critique of Levinas's position. I show that, by distinguishing between two systems of signification – the head-body system and the face system – Deleuze agrees with Levinas that the face is an important signifier...
