Who Will Save the Children? Feminist Perspectives on the Contradictions of Education in States of In/Security and Crisis
Across the globe, optimistic, globally circulating “policyscapes” posit education as the balm to heal myriad social and political conflicts that are producing dispossession and extreme vulnerability for so many people today. Overlooked in these policy discourses are teachers as state actors who are charged with “securing” the future of the nation. Drawing on feminist perspectives, and looking closely at the case of educational policy-making in Lebanon, this talk analyzes the contradictory nature of teaching in the midst of conflict and crisis.
