Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education

Description

This inquiry explores who is the ‘good teacher of color’. Through Michel Foucault’s notion of biopower and disciplinary power, the analysis attempts to problematize the subject-position of ‘teacher of color’ by exploring how a Latino intern and a Latina intern negotiated their subjectivity in a large diverse school district. Participants’ construction of subjectivity was found to be located within the nexus of the school district, the university, and the Latino counter-discourse through which biopower and disciplinary power operated.
