Abstract

Education is one of the arenas where the logics of speculation are being played out. Disciplinary technologies in education are molded by what we call speculative pedagogies. Entrepreneurship, employability and lifelong learning form key aspects of speculative pedagogies. As disciplinary technologies in education, the task of speculative pedagogies is to (re)mould individuals into calculating, risk-taking and maximizing subjects gamblers or docile and risk-taking subjects that live and act in accordance to the rules of the game. In what follows, we rely on recent developments in Swedish educational policy, to discuss the rise of speculative regimes in education.



A major task of speculative pedagogies is to foster speculative subjects attuned to the demands of accumulation by speculation on a global scale. Changes in educational policy over the last two decades in Sweden have transformed education into an arena where politics and pedagogies of speculation come into play whose primary objective is to promote ways of being and thinking, foster values and ideals based on the speculative logics of financial capitalism
