Filmed School examines the place that teaching holds in the public imaginary through its portrayal in cinema. From early films such as Mädchen in Uniform and La Maternelle to contemporary images of teaching in Notes on a Scandal and The History Boys, teachers’ roles in film have been consistently contradictory, portraying teachers as both seducers and selfless heroes, social outcasts and moral models, contributing to a similarly divided popular understanding of teachers as both salvific and sinister. In this book, Stillwaggon and Jelinek present these contradictory images of teaching through the concept of transference—the fantastical belief in another’s knowing that founds a teacher’s authority in relation to her students and, to some degree, the public at large. Tracing the place of transference across a century of school films, each chapter demonstrates the persistence of this fantasy in one of the dreams or nightmares of teaching that recurs thematically in school films: the teacher-as-savior, seducer, signifier in a moribund discourse, and sacrificial object. Through these analyses, the authors suggest that something might be missing in our attempts to theorize education when we leave our unthought fantasies of teaching out of the picture. This book will be of key interest to academics, researchers, and postgraduate students in the fields of educational theory, teacher education, philosophy of education, film and media studies, psychoanalysis, sociology of education, curriculum studies, and cultural studies.

On the Politics of Educational Theory considers the political significance of educational theory as a specific genre of public discourse. Rather than understanding educational theories solely as addressing issues of childrearing and instruction, this book aims to view educational theories in a broader socio-political context. It explores the role of educational theories in the construction of collective and political identities, and analyses them as rhetorical strategies operating as political discourses. Defining the methodological framework through the perspectives of Michel Foucault and Ernesto Laclau, each chapter examines the ways in which theories of education contribute to the creation of social realities and identities. Such issues as the construction of visibility and invisibility of power, the tropes of temporality, or the use of postulational language where theorists say what ‘should’ be done in and by education, are some of the threads that weave through particular theories – from Rousseau to the discourse of education in the knowledge-based society – analysed as ontological rhetorics constitutive of political identities. This book suggests a direction for a more conscious way of dealing with the political in education. As such, it will appeal to researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of educational research, philosophy of education, curriculum studies, social and political theory, and theory of education.

Time and the Rhythms of Emancipatory Education argues that by rethinking the way we relate to time, we can fundamentally rethink the way we conceive education. Beyond the contemporary rhetoric of acceleration, speed, urgency or slowness, this book provides an epistemological, historical and theoretical framework that will serve as a comprehensive resource for critical reflection on the relationship between the experience of time and emancipatory education. Drawing upon time and rhythm studies, complexity theories and educational research, Alhadeff-Jones reflects upon the temporal and rhythmic dimensions of education in order to (re)theorize and address current societal and educational challenges. The book is divided into three parts. The first begins by discussing the specificities inherent to the study of time in educational sciences. The second contextualizes the evolution of temporal constraints that determine the ways education is institutionalized, organized, and experienced. The third and final part questions the meanings of emancipatory education in a context of temporal alienation. This is the first book to provide a broad overview of European and North-American theories that inform both the ideas of time and rhythm in educational sciences, from school instruction, curriculum design and arts education, to vocational training, lifelong learning and educational policies. It will be of key interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of philosophy of education, sociology of education, history of education, psychology, curriculum and learning theory, and adult education.

Gilles Deleuze veröffentlichte in den 1980er-Jahren zwei Bücher über das Kino: Das Bewegungs-Bild und Das Zeit-Bild. Diese Bücher entfalten eine Taxonomie der Filmbilder und ihrer Zeichen, die zur Weiterarbeit und -nutzung einlädt. Deleuze, der keine Filmgeschichte vorlegen wollte, rekonstruiert sie beiläufig trotzdem und thematisiert einige hundert Filme. Er wendet sich der Frühzeit des Kinos ebenso zu wie den Avantgarden der 1970er-Jahre. Zugleich setzen sich seine Bücher mit den Arbeiten Bergsons und Peirces auseinander und weisen enge Bezüge zur eigenen Spätphilosophie auf, die Deleuzes zum Teil in Kooperation mit Félix Guattari entwickelt hat. Dies erklärt, warum es in den Büchern um viel mehr geht als nur ums Kino - u. a. um Leben, Werden, Wissenschaft und Denken. Es erklärt auch, warum Deleuzes Kino-Philosophie in der Filmwissenschaft als schwer zugänglich gilt - ein Eindruck, der durch die uneinheitlichen Übersetzungen der beiden Bände verstärkt wird. So verwundert es kaum, dass die deutschsprachige Rezeption im Vergleich zur anglo-amerikanischen, von wenigen Ausnahmen abgesehen, insgesamt schleppend verläuft. "Bewegungsbilder nach Deleuze" vereint die Beiträge des Klagenfurter Symposions 2012, die sich mit der Entwicklung der Film- und Kinobilder seit 1985 beschäftigen und deren Ziel es war und ist, dem deutschsprachigen Diskurs Anstöße zu geben und Deleuze, der keine Schule gründen wollte, gerecht zu werden, indem sie versuchen, ihn ›weiter zu denken‹.

Wie Filme zeigen können, woran wir mit uns sind. Von Anfang an übernimmt das Kino viele Verfahren der Architektur, der Musik, der Malerei, des Schauspiels, der Literatur und anderer Künste – aber es lässt sie nicht so, wie sie dort sind. Das Kino kann, was es kann, weil es das verkehrt und verwandelt, was die anderen Künste können. In seinem neuen Buch unternimmt Martin Seel eine Analyse dieser Verbindung. In neun konzisen Kapiteln erkundet er das besondere ästhetische Potential des Films und führt an konkreten Beispielen vor, wie unterschiedlich es realisiert werden kann. Stilistisch glänzend entwirft Martin Seel eine neuartige Perspektive auf den Film und darauf, was er mit uns im Kino macht.
