In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The research has involved observing, and at times challenging, the parameters of student and teacher behaviours within the state education system. This has entailed navigating the tension between ethics and creative determination, and transgressing conventions of teaching by situating the project in a field of cultural production outside the educational setting.
The project draws into focus the agonistic learning that can happen within schools as a positive outcome of criticality in education. Through the production of a socially-engaged theatrical work, this research evaluates the child and indeed the education system as political subjects; the social hierarchies of the pedagogical that are learnt implicitly or explicitly through the ‘hidden curriculum’; how self-organised and anti-democratic processes engender agonism and antagonism within an educational setting; and the complexity of the ethics of representing co-authored work in a University research context.
