Storying the Public Intellectual

Storying the Public Intellectual: Commentaries on the Impact and Influence of the Work of Ivor Goodson offers a critcal commentary on Goodson’s work that avoids hagiography whilst recognising the global reach of his scholarship. With contributors from around the world, those who have collaborated with him or those who have taken up his work, the book provides the sort of social and historical contextualising that Goodson has always advocated. The accounts in this collection highlight how Goodson’s integration of moral imperatives into strategically responsive scholarship can provide a useful roadmap when negotiating a path through the contemporary academic research landscape. By using his historian’s orientation and sensibilities he is able to get to the heart of the logics of schooling. By connecting with other scholars and researchers around the world, he exposes how the global neo-liberal project plays out in particular settings, and so challenges pervasive understandings about the meaning of global – and the power of the neo-liberal project itself. This book is ideal reading for academics, scholars and researchers in the field of education, including those involved in initial and in-service teacher education.
