(RE) IMAGINING SUBJECTS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS: INTERSECTIONS OF MULTIPLE DIFFERENCES

M. Infante

Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (CHILE)
This presentation addresses subjectivities’ production of elementary school students in a scenario where educational public policies and practices towards difference are becoming more sophisticated and imperceptible. Neoliberalism as a force that transform educational services into a market logic system allows public schools to produce biopolitical technologies that interpelate students‘ subjectivities. Particularly, students’ multiple differences are masked in discursives’ representations with specific effects to their educational and life experiences. With the intention of problematizing these ideas, I use public educational policies and narratives (oral and visual) from three students who attend 8th grade at public schools with high rates of immigrant population, inclusion projects, and high vulnerability indexes. Methodological approach includes critical discourse analysis for localizing at the center of this problematization, discourses’ political views and social implications regarding the intersectionality of multiple differences (e.g. disability, race, and vulnerability) within the (re)production of power practices and subjectivities in public schools.
