    Spatial Theories of Education: Policy and Geography Matters.Kalervo N. Gulson & Colin Symes - 2007 - New York: Routledge.
    This collection of original work, within the sociology of education, draws on the 'spatial turn' in contemporary social theory. The premise of this book is that drawing on theories of space allows for a more sophisticated understanding of the competing rationalities underlying educational policy change, social inequality and cultural practices. The contributors work a spatial dimension into the consideration of educational phenomena and illustrate its explanatory potential in a range of domains: urban renewal, globalisation, race, markets and school choice, suburbanisation, (...)

    Psycho-politicising educational subjectivity: A posthumanist consideration of Rancière and Lacan.Sajad Kabgani, Richard Niesche & Kalervo N. Gulson - 2018 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 50 (13):1259-1270.
    Drawing on the aesthetic theory of Jacques Rancière and the Lacanian conception of lack, this paper offers an intervention into the notion of subjectivity which can be applied in critical studies of education. Critiquing the progressive and knowledge-oriented ideology of neoliberal systems, Rancière depicts a world in which politics turns out to delimit the subject’s perceptual experience and in this way, argues that what remains out of this ideological demarcation is susceptible to a challenge of the social order on which (...)

    The Edge of Race: Critical Examinations of Education and Race/Racism.Kalervo N. Gulson, Zeus Leonardo & David Gillborn (eds.) - 2015 - Routledge.
    The phrase ‘the edge of race’ can be used both as a description and as a response to two key concerns. The first of these is that while race is increasingly on the periphery of education policy – with a growing disregard shown for racist inequities, as education systems become dominated by market-driven concerns – it is important that we map the shifting relations of race in neoliberal politics and policies. The second concern is that at this time, within and (...)

    Policy Intensions and the Folds of the Self.P. Taylor Webb & Kalervo N. Gulson - 2013 - Educational Theory 63 (1):51-68.
    In this essay, P. Taylor Webb and Kalervo N. Gulson argue that educational policy is a spatial process and that implementation processes in particular produce crucial emergent geographies for policy research. Webb and Gulson describe how emergent geographies are produced when policy folds actors through senses and enactments of policy. The idea that policy is sensed and enacted is developed into the concept of a policy intension that extends approaches to spatial and, in particular, micropolitical analyses in policy research. Webb (...)
