    Vuxenpedagogik som forskningsfält2013In: Lärandets mångfald: Om vuxenpedagogik och folkbildning / [ed] Andreas Fejes, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2013, 1, p. 19-34Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige har ett unikt system för vuxnas deltagande i arrangerat lärande inom ramen för kommunal vuxenutbildning, folkhögskola och studiecirklar. Dessa verksamheter står under ständig förändring i fråga om vem som deltar, hur de finansieras, vilket uppdrag de har och vilka pedagogiska ideal som råder.Lärandets mångfald ger en aktuell bild av olika sammanhang för vuxnas lärande med speciellt fokus på vuxenutbildning och folkbildning. Läs den också för att lära känna den forskning som idag finns om dessa områden. Ämnen är bland annat bokcirklarnas framväxt, framväxten av muslimska studieförbund och folkhögskolor, skönlitteraturens roll inom utbildning, politiska makthavares bildningsvägar, didaktiska perspektiv på undervisning av vuxna och yrkeslärares identiteter.

    Vuxenpedagogik som forskningsfält: Trender och tendenser2016In: Pedagogisk forskning i Sverige, ISSN 1401-6788, E-ISSN 2001-3345, Vol. 21, no 1-2, p. 132-151Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den professur i vuxenpedagogik jag tillträdde 1 oktober 2012 är den enda i sitt slag i Sverige. Genom riksdagsbeslut inrättades den med syfte att stärka forskning inom det vuxenpedagogiska området. Inte minst var det del i satsning på att stärka forskningsbasen vid folkhögskollärarprogrammet vid Linköpings universitet, det enda lärosäte där detta program har funnits och för tillfället finns. Först att inneha professuren var Kjell Rubenson som innehade den från 1983, men som efter flytt till University of British Columbia i Vancouver, Kanada, på heltid ersattes av Staffan Larsson 1993. Att detta är den enda professuren i Sverige inom området kan å ena sidan ses som något unikt. Å andra sidan kanske frågan väcks om det kan indikera att vuxenpedagogik är något perifert i Sverige. Är det något som finns i andra länder? Kanske väcker benämningen i sig också frågan om vad vuxenpedagogik kan tänkas vara. Handlar det om kunskap om hur man lär vuxna att lära sig något?

    Abstract [sv]

    I detta kapitel ställs den samhälleliga organiseringen av vuxenutbildning i en historisk

    belysning, som visar hur vuxenutbildningen har svarat och idag svarar mot samhälleliga

    krav och mot politiska strömningar. Kapitlet är en hjälp att bättre förstå

    vuxenutbildningssystemets utformning och därmed i förlängningen lärares möjligheter

    och begränsningar inom systemet.

    Working with Foucault in adult education research2013In: 7th triennial conference of ESREA, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter argues for the usefulness of Foucault in research on the education and learning of adults. The chapter begins with a short introduction to how the work of Foucault has been taken up in adult education research and what trends can be discerned in terms of how extensive such research is and what parts of Foucault’s work are used. Second, I argue for the usefulness of a governmentality perspective, inspired by Foucault, followed by an introduction to some key concepts such as governmentality, power, technologies of the self, and regime of practices. The chapter then goes on to introduce an argument of how policies on lifelong learning (in which adult education and adult learning are currently inserted) and the regime of practice of which it is part, fabricates certain kinds of citizens. The chapter ends with some concluding notes.

    Introduktion på svenska: Om språkintroduktion för nyanlända på gymnasieskola och folkhögskola2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I kölvattnet av senaste årens migrationsrörelser har en rad olika initiativ tagits för att möjliggöra nyanländas etablering i det svenska samhället. En sådan insats har varit att på prov erbjuda gymnasieskolans språkintroduktionsprogram (SI) även på folkhögskola. Förhoppningen är att just denna utbildningsform är särskilt väl lämpad för nyanlända ungdomar. I denna forskningsrapport jämförs verksamheten inom SI såsom den bedrivs på två gymnasieskolor och två folkhögskolor. Analysen visar att folkhögskolans organisering av SI-verksamheten är mer flexibel och integrerad i övrig verksamhet, vilket också ger potential till en mer inkluderande undervisning.

    Studien är del av forskningsprogrammet Migration, lärande och social inkludering, som genom en longitudinell forskningsdesign söker svar på frågan om hur olika sammanhang för (unga) vuxnas språkliga lärande bidrar till deras sociala inkludering. Programmet är ett samarbete mellan forskningsmiljöerna Vuxenpedagogik och folkbildning och Socialt arbete vid Linköpings universitet.

    Recognition of prior learning within elderly care work2015In: Working and learning in times of uncertainty: Challenges to adult, professional and vocational education / [ed] Sandra Bohlinger, Ulrika Haake,Chrsitian Helms Jörgensen, Hanna Toiviainen, Andreas Wallo, Rotterdam: Sense Publishers, 2015, p. 145-156Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this chapter is to discuss in what ways recognition of prior learning and prior experiences exists as part of the process of in-service training, and whether new learning is an aspect of this process. To understand these concerns, 26 semi-structured interviews (Kvale, 1996) were undertaken with a total of 30 care workers, assistant nurses (some of them acting as supervisors of participating care workers), local managers, and teachers. The aim of the interviews was to see how the informants perceived their participation and work within the in-service training programme. Altogether, 14 participants, six local managers, five supervisors, and five teachers were interviewed. All the interviewees were female. Some of them were interviewed twice (two managers, two supervisors, and three participants), at the beginning of the process and four months after the process had ended. Twenty interviews were individual, and six were group interviews, with two to five care workers in each interview. The selection of interviewees was based on the nursing homes participating in the project in one specific municipality , which was chosen because it had made rapid progress with the project. We covered the entire project in this specific municipality so that we could develop a broad and deep understanding of the project.

    The analysis of interviews has been conducted using a qualitative interpretative approach focusing on discerning categories related to how the in-service training in the project was perceived by the interviewees regarding the role of experience, learning, and recognition. Firstly, we discuss the way the process of in-service training was organised and how prior learning was assessed. Secondly, we try to discern what role is ascribed to prior learning in the process of training/learning. Thirdly, we problematise the relation between experience, learning, and recognition.

    Becoming the role model: Youth recreational leaders, occupational choice and a will to include2018In: Discourse. Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, ISSN 0159-6306, E-ISSN 1469-3739, Vol. 39, no 6, p. 901-912Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to analyse how a discourse on the role model operates in youth recreational work. Drawing on Michel Foucault’s concepts of subjectivity, discourse and power/knowledge, the article analyses interviews with youth recreation leader students enrolled at a folk high school, and their talk about occupational choice. The analysis illustrates how a discourse on the role model emerge and operate through the ways students’ descriptions of ‘being’, and ‘doing’ intersect with their becoming as role models. The analysis raises several important questions. Should youth recreational work only target those young people who are already marginalised? Are there other subject positions than the role model, available to take up in youth recreation work? Are experiences of marginalisation necessary in order for a desirable youth recreation leader to emerge?

    Choosing one’s future?: Narratives on educational and occupational choice among folk high school participants in Sweden2019In: International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, ISSN 0251-2513, E-ISSN 1573-1782Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article poses these questions: How do participants on two different courses in folk high schools in Sweden, a basic course and a theatre course, motivate their educational and occupational choices, and what similarities and differences can be identified? We analyse interviews with students drawing on a narrative approach. Five trajectories emerge: desire to get away; desire to get back on track; desire for employment; desire to change occupation; and desire to realise one’s dreams. We argue that these trajectories reproduce existing social stratification in society, whereby certain futures are available to some people, and not to others.

    Lessons from Sweden2019In: Neoliberalism and market forces in education: Lessons from Sweden / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt & Andreas Fejes, Routledge, 2019, 1, p. 231-234Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the establishment of a free school choice, the right to establish independent schools, and possibilities to make profit on publicly funded schools, Sweden has developed one of the most market-oriented education systems in the world. Currently, Chile and New Zealand are two of the few countries where similarities to the extreme market orientation in Swedish education can be traced (see Chapter 5). Even the OECD have critiqued the Swedish education system for having become too market oriented, contributing to an increase in inequalities and segregation. This critique is highly interesting in that the OECD is a global organisation that for decades has been promoting a market-liberal reform agenda throughout the world. In the report Improving Schools in Sweden – an OECD Perspective, on the state of the Swedish education system, the organisation concludes:

    Providing full parental school choice can result in segregating students by ability and/or socio-economic background and generate greater inequities while not necessarily raising performance… . Swedish school choice arrangements do not currently have a consolidated approach to ensure equity while supporting quality. There are no clear guidelines for schools, and funding strategies do not necessarily prioritise disadvantaged students across all municipalities, possibly implying that independent schools become more selective towards more advantaged students, given the same student costs.

    (OECD, 2015, p. 101) The current market-oriented system in Sweden was also elaborated in the school commission, commissioned by the government, delivering its final report in 2017 (SOU 2017:35). The commission was made up of researchers, as well as representatives from teacher trade unions as well as public and independent schools, and had the task to make a complete overview of the entire education system in Sweden. At large, the commission confirms, based on existing research, the assessment made by the OECD, in terms of an extreme market orientation in 232Sweden, contributing to an increase in inequality and segregation. However, rather than suggesting a makeover of the Swedish education system, as was made in the early 1990s when the market reforms were introduced and implemented, the commission provides suggestions on how the current system could be fine-tuned. Or rather, the neoliberal ideas behind the last decades’ makeover of the Swedish education system were further reinforced by the commission.

    Popular education, migration and a discourse of inclusion2017In: Studies in the Education of Adults, ISSN 0266-0830, E-ISSN 1478-9833, Vol. 49, no 2, p. 214-227Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we focus on how a discourse on inclusion operates through language learning programmes for migrants. We direct our attention to a new form of activities funded by the Swedish government, Swedish from day 1, organised by popular education institutions. These activities emerged in connection to the migra- tion flows in 2015, receiving large sums in funding from the gov- ernment. They target newly arrived migrants who are waiting for a decision on their resident permit application, and the aim is to provide an introduction to the Swedish language as well as to Swedish society. Drawing on a Foucault-inspired theorization, we direct our attention to how a discourse of inclusion operate through the way these initiatives are spoken about, how these activities are described, what they are intended to attain, and what kind of citizen is shaped through such a way of speaking. We analyse policy documents produced by different actors involved in the process of Swedish from day 1, as well as case study descriptions of courses. We argue that the discourse on inclusion that emerges encompasses a wider as well as an instru- mental notion of inclusion. Migrants are positioned as ‘in deficit’, in need of knowledge in order to become included. Such know- ledge does not limit itself to knowledge of the Swedish language and knowledge about Swedish society, but also knowledge of health issues, and knowledge about how the migrants can market themselves and their competencies. We end the article by relating this discourse on inclusion to a wider discussion on neoliberal rationalities of governing.

    The Confessing Society: Foucault, confession and practices of lifelong learning2014 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, people are constantly encouraged to verbalise and disclose their "true" inner self to others, whether on TV shows, in newspapers, in family life or together with friends. Such encouragement to disclose the self has proliferated through discourses on lifelong learning through which each citizen is encouraged to become a constant learner. The Confessing Society takes a critical stance towards the modern relentless will to disclose the self and argues that society has become a confessing society. Drawing on Foucault’s later work on confession and governmentality, this book carefully analyses how confession operates within practices of lifelong learning as a way to shape activated and responsible citizens and provides examples of how it might be possible to traverse the confessional truth of the present time. Chapters include:

    • Reflection and Reflective Practices
    • Deliberation and Therapeutic Intervention
    • Lifelong Guidance
    • Medialised Parenting

    This controversial book is international in its scope and pursues current debates regarding trans-national policy and to research discussions on education, lifelong learning and governance, and it will provoke lively debate amongst educational practitioners, academics, postgraduate and research students in education and lifelong learning in Europe, North America and Australasia.

    The Confessing Society: Foucault, Confession and Practices of Lifelong Learning2012 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    "Lifelong learning has become an increasingly important theme in contemporary society through which each citizen is encouraged to become a constant learner. Such narratives are often seen as positive and all-inclusive. In this book, practices of lifelong learning will be considered as practices of confession. Today, people are constantly encouraged to verbalize themselves to others, whether on TV shows, in newspapers, in family life or together with friends. In The Confessing Society, the authors argue that society has become a confessing society by illustrating how confession operates in the practices of family involvement in school, in-service training, educational guidance, through coaching in the media, etc. Together, such practices shape and govern an active and responsible citizen. The authors, drawing on Foucault's later work on confession and governmentality, carefully analyse how confession operates within practices of lifelong learning as a way to shape activated and responsible citizens. Chapters include: - Reflection and Reflective Practices - Deliberation and Therapeutic Intervention - Lifelong Guidance - Medialised Parenting This book is international in its scope and the argument pursued is related to current debates regarding trans-national policy and to research discussions on education, lifelong learning and governance, and it will provoke lively debate amongst educational practitioners, academics, postgraduate and research students in education and lifelong learning in Europe, North America and Australasia"--

    Adult Education and the Formation of Citizens: A Critical Interrogation2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Adult Education and the Formation of Citizens turns attention towards normative claims about who adults should become through education, and what capacities and skills adults need to develop to become included in society as ‘full’ citizens. Through these debates, adults are construed as not yet citizens, despite already being citizens in a formal sense; this book problematises such regimes of truth and their related notions of the possibilities and impossibilities of adult education and citizenship.

    Drawing on empirical examples from the two main adult education institutions in Sweden, folk high schools and municipal adult education, it argues that, through current regimes of truth, these institutions become spaces for the re-shaping of the "abnormal" citizen. The book suggests that only certain futures of citizenship and its educational provision are made possible, while other futures are ignored or even made impossible to imagine. Offering a unique focus on critically problematising the role of adult education in relation to the fostering and shaping of citizens, the book addresses the important contemporary challenges of the role of adult education in a time of migration.

    Adult Education and the Formation of Citizens will be of great interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of adult education, lifelong learning and education.

    Medborgarskap och utbildning för vuxna: om komvux, folkhögskola och medborgarskapandets praktiker2018 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utbildning för vuxna lyfts ofta fram som en lösning på en rad aktuella samhällsutmaningar. Allt från miljöfrågor till den mer övergripande målsättningen att skapa ekonomisk tillväxt. Men vuxenutbildningen har också ett tydligt demokratiskt och medborgerligt uppdrag och i denna bok utforskas detta medborgerliga uppdrag utifrån dess grundläggande antaganden, verkningssätt och konsekvenser. Det är en berättelse som å ena sidan handlar om inkludering, erkännande, framtidstro och realiserandet av drömmar, å andra sidan om normalisering, exkludering och villkorad gemenskap. Med andra ord, att bli en god samhällsmedborgare handlar inte enbart om att tillägna sig relevant kunskap. Det är lika mycket en process av att forma en person – dennes självuppfattning och -uttryck – vilket öppnar upp för en diskussion om gränserna för vuxenutbildningens uppdrag.


    Boken vänder sig till studenter inom lärarutbildningarna, yrkes- verksamma lärare, skolledare, studievägledare, folkbildare och politiker som intresserar sig för frågor om vuxenutbildningens och folkbildningens roll i att fostra framtida medborgare.

    Caring and daring discourses at work: doing gender through occupational choices in elderly care and police work2013In: Vocations and Learning, ISSN 1874-785X, E-ISSN 1874-7868, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 281-295Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to problematise how gender is being done—1. through occupational choices in two occupations that are traditionally gender divided, elderly care and police work, and 2. through the division of work assignments in police work. Interviews with care workers and police officers are analysed using a “doing gender” perspective, a post-structural notion of subjectivity inspired by Michel Foucault and positioning theory. We argue that a caring discourse operates in elderly care workers’ and police officers’ statements concerning occupational choices, while a daring discourse operates in statements concerning occupational choices within police work. Through these discourses, gender is being done in different ways; caring dispositions are constructed as totally female within the context of elderly care but as more gender-neutral in police work. At the same time, a macho or daring attitude is constructed as a male attribute in police work. Such constructions may have social consequences in terms of dividing work tasks for police, where male officers work in more prestigious and “dangerous” areas, while female officers are left with less prestigious, more caring-associated working areas.

    Procurement as a market in adult education2019In: Neoliberalism and market forces in education: Lessons from Sweden / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt & Andreas Fejes, Routledge, 2019, 1, p. 156-169Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we will focus on a less talked about education system currently used in Sweden, namely that of municipal adult education (MAE). Here, the market emerges through a system where municipalities contract private providers through public procurement. This in contrast to the voucher system and free school choice operating in the compulsory and upper secondary school system in Sweden. While the latter system positions students and their parents as customers, the former has municipalities decide if and who they want to contract. In MAE, students can choose what courses to take, but it is the municipality that decides who provides said courses. In other words, marketisation in MAE is not based on the student’s power to choose, but on the municipality’s discretion. This makes for a different type of privatisation of education that, potentially, has different consequences for those involved. In this chapter, we look at privatisation of MAE in Sweden, specifically focusing on what consequences this might have for those engaging in MAE, i.e. students, teachers and principals. Firstly, we elaborate on MAE as an institution, beginning with its history and by providing some descriptive statistics. We then explain the way procurement takes place in this context and end the chapter by providing some notes on what consequences this kind of system might have for those involved.

    Vocational teachers' identity formation through boundary crossing2014In: Journal of Education and Work, ISSN 1363-9080, E-ISSN 1469-9435, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 265-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Vocational teachers’ prior occupational experiences are construed as those that will guarantee high-quality teaching in vocational education, although individuals are no longer required to have formal teaching qualifications to be employed as teachers in Sweden. This lack of strict requirements raises the issue of the preparedness of vocational teachers to teach their subject matter. Drawing on a socio-cultural understanding of identity, and based on twenty semi-structured interviews with vocational teachers in different subject areas, this article addresses vocational teachers’ identity formation through boundary crossing; these individuals cross boundaries between the community of the prior occupation’s practice, the teaching occupation and the community of teacher training. The analysis illustrates how teachers who manage to balance their teacher identities with their occupational identities by maintaining their participation in the different communities seem to be the best prepared to teach their vocational subjects. As many of those we interviewed do not manage to keep such a balance, we argue for the need for in-service training for vocational teachers to help them keep up to date with, participate in and continue to belong to the communities of their former occupations.

    A confessing 'science' in education and lifelong learning2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we identify resources drawn on from Foucault that are distinctive and pertinent for specific forms of analyses of what is happening in the turn to confessional practices in education and lifelong learning. We identify that confessional practices have come to shape and govern the Western world; they have emerged across the practices of the human sciences and are now intrinsic to our everyday lives and understandings of ourselves. Education and learning have a key position in promulgating confessional practices as a new social norm. They are key as perpetrators of this new kind fashioning of ourselves as human kinds in a particular way.

     

    We describe a regime and apparatus of power of education and lifelong learning which has confession intrinsic to its maintenance and productive force. Confession is described as technology, conduit of power, operating one person in relation to another, and dominating today in the production of specific forms of confessing people.  We call this ‘strategy’. Within this regime, in education and policy circles and more widely, we identify a shift in the talk accompanying and surrounding the emergence of these techniques: whereas before educators and policy makers talked about education, they now talk of learning. Lifelong learning and the learning society, the knowledge economy, society and Knowledge Age are themes that have come to dominate the texts emanating from the cloistered grounds of governmental offices and intra-national agencies. The question remains therefore of where this strategy takes us in terms of its wider social and political effects in western societies.

    The paper identifies and explores other previous educational and lifelong learning research that has considered confessional practices to consider whether or not these find answers to the question of what is happening today'

    An Emergence of Confession in Education2015In: Foucault and a politics of confession in education / [ed] Andreas Fejes & Katherine Nicoll, Routledge, 2015, 1, p. 3-17Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Confession is emerging as a technology that encourages learners to know who they ‘truly’ are. This technology has become common over the last years in education settings, supported in part through discourses of the learner, learner-centeredness, learning to learn and life narrative. In this chapter, we locate this emerging technology in relation to such discourses, but also to wider social change were practices of confession extend a domain of government into everyday life. We introduce the idea of confession as a political technology and exercise of power, for confession is not neutral in its attempts in shaping the learner and people more widely today. Confession is also a theorization emerging through the writing of Michel Foucault. We thus orient the reader to some of Foucault’s conceptual resources, outlining the emergence of confession historically. And we point to our purpose of this collection of chapters, in considering confession in education anew and from a critical angle, in a politics of government that can ask what it may do in shaping our ‘selves’ and our thinking.

    Foucault and a politics of confession in education2015Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In liberal, democratic and capitalist societies today, we are increasingly invited to disclose our innermost thoughts to others. We are asked to turn our gaze inwards, scrutinizing ourselves, our behaviours and beliefs, while talking and writing about ourselves in these terms. This form of disclosure of the self resonates with older forms of church confession, and is now widely seen in practices of education in new ways in nurseries, schools, colleges, universities, workplaces and the wider policy arena. 

    This book brings together international scholars and researchers inspired by the work of Michel Foucault, to explore in detail what happens when these practices of confession become part of our lives and ways of being in education. The authors argue that they are not neutral, but political and powerful in their effects in shaping and governing people; they examine confession as discursive and contemporary practice so as to provoke critical thought. 

    International in scope and pioneering in the detail of its scrutiny of such practices, this book extends contemporary understanding of the exercise of power and politics of confessional practices in education and learning, and offers an alternative way of thinking of them. The book will be of value to educational practitioners, scholars, researchers and students, interested in the politics of their own practices.

    Abstract [en]

    The three concepts central to this volume--practice, learning and change--have received very different treatments in the educational literature, an oversight directly confronted here. While learning and change have been extensively theorised, their various contexts articulated and analysed, practice is notably underrepresented. Where much of the literature on learning and change takes the notion of 'practice' as an unexamined given, its co-location as a term with various classifiers, as in 'legal practice' and 'teaching practice', render it curiously devoid of semantic force. In this book, 'pr.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det mediala landskapet målar upp skolans kris med utgångspunkt i internationella mätningar som PISA-undersökningen (Skolverket, 2013). Mot bakgrund av denna kris finns det tre förhållandevis uppenbara skäl att fästa uppmärksamhet vid politikområdet vuxnas utbildning och lärande. För det första, oavsett vad man väljer att se som huvudskälen till skolans kris och de bristande kunskaperna hos många av de elever som idag lämnar ungdomsskolan, kommer det finnas behov av ytterligare möjligheter för lärande och utbildning för dessa personer i vuxen ålder. För det andra kan vi se att det svenska systemet för vuxnas lärande inte tycks ha präglats av samma direkta krissymptom som barn- och ungdomsskolan. Enligt PIAAC (SCB, 2013), en jämförande internationell undersökning som förenklat kan beskrivas som en PISA-motsvarighet inom vuxnas lärande, har Sverige en mycket stark ställning. En tredje observation är att om skolan länge varit ett av de hetaste politikområdena, präglat av en uppsjö konfliktytor, ändringsförlag och reformer, menar vi att folkbildningen (i mycket stor utsträckning) och vuxenutbildningen (i betydande utsträckning) präglats av konsensus och avsaknad av större politiska skiljelinjer.

    I ljuset av detta vill vi lyfta fram utvecklingstendenser inom vuxnas lärande de senaste decennierna, som utgångpunkt för reflektioner om framtiden. En avgränsning görs till politiken för folkbildning och den kommunala vuxenutbildning en. Mer konkret bygger analysen på läsning av ett antal propositioner och offentliga utredningar inom området fr.o.m. 1990, vilka relateras till aktuell forskning. Förutom att övergripande visa på infrastrukturförändringen inom området avser vi särskilt fokusera hur marknadiseringstendenser, som pekats ut som ett karaktäristiskt drag i svensk skolutveckling de senaste decennierna, varit skönjbara inom kommunal vuxenbildning och folkbildning.

    Adult Education and Learning: A Pluralistic Research Field?2019In: Mapping out the research field of adult education and learning / [ed] Andeas Fejes & Erik Nylander, Springer, 2019, 1, p. 119-137Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What the field of adult education research is and how it can be described has been a debated issue over the decades. Several scholars argue that the field today is heterogeneous, borrowing theories and methods from a range of disciplines. In this chapter, we take such statements as a starting point for empirical analysis. In what ways could it be argued that the field is pluralistic rather than monolithic; heterogeneous rather than homogenous? Drawing on bibliographic data of the top cited articles in three main adult education journals between 2005 and 2012, we illustrate how the citation patterns have tendencies of homogeneity when it comes to the geographical country of authorship, since the USA, UK, Australia and Canada dominate, as well as the research methods adopted, since qualitative approaches have near total dominance. Furthermore, there is a tendency to adopt similar theoretical approaches, since sociocultural perspectives, critical pedagogy and post-structuralism represent more than half of the articles in our sample. At the same time, the results of our analysis indicate signs of scholarly pluralism, for instance, in terms of authorship, since both early career researchers and established researchers are represented among the top cited publications. We conclude the chapter by arguing that empirical analysis of publication and citation patterns is important to further the development of reflexivity within the field, not least for early career researchers, who might benefit from knowledge about what has been recognized among peers as worth citing in recent times.

    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, researchers throughout the world have come under increased pressure to publish in English, direct their scholarly work to internationally acclaimed journals indexed in the dominating databases (i.e. Scopus and Web of Science) and render their work citable among peers in other countries. In this chapter, we summarize some recent bibliometric studies that have mapped out what kind of research that have been published and cited in three leading journals related to adult––lifelong education and learning––and which researchers that has been given recognition. We argue that the strong political waves of managerial reform have made academic career trajectories and promotions more dependent upon publications and citations, thus necessitating a discussion about the most effective publication strategies for submission. At the same time, we acknowledge the multiple professional demands of adult educational scholars and highlight the ways different definitions of scholarly impact might stand in conflict with one another.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper is an attempt to characterize the field of research on the education and learning of adults. Characterizing a research field includes the (re)construction of scientific borders, processes that is based on inclusion and exclusions including research themes, objects methodologies and theories. Our intention here is to “objectify” this field of research through a content analysis of three key research journals active within the field, Adult Education Quarterly (AEQ), International Journal of Lifelong Education (IJLE), and Studies in Continuing Education (SICE). By gathering aggregated statistics based on publications between the years 2005-2012 focusing on aspects such as authorship in terms of geography and gender, distribution of citations, the most popular research objects, methodologies and theories, we hope to characterize some of the reoccurring themes and approaches, as well as encourage debate and discussions about what research on the education and learning might be about. In the paper, we treat the different approaches and contributions as productive forces in order for a field to come into existence, be legitimised, and acknowledged as a field in which one would like to engage in (cf. Foucault, 1980, Bourdieu, 1988). Ultimately, different characterizations and descriptions of the field need to be made available in order to open up possibilities for the field to become something different than what it is.

    Abstract [en]

    If the framing and composition of research fields are never fully fixed or saturated (Abbott 1995; Gieryn 1983), this is a particularly salient feature of the research field that deals with the education and learning of adults. Not only is the research question of adult education and learning approached from a multitude of academic disciplines – such as sociology, psychology and education – the very concepts that are used to denote this field have also undergone important changes. Such conceptual changes are visible, for instance, in the recent development whereby the model of adult education and Bildung came to be partly replaced by the notion of lifelong learning. In Europe, lifelong learning gained prominence in the policy area with the year of Lifelong Learning in 1996 and then the Memorandum on Lifelong Learning, published by the European Commission (2001), which positions lifelong learning as a central policy concept in the realisation of the Commission’s strategies. As a policy preoccupation, lifelong learning supersedes concepts of adult education (Lindeman 1926) and lifelong education (Faure 1972). The shift from focusing on education to speaking about learning is important to address in research, because it marks out a new way of conceptualising the education and learning of adults in terms of the why, the how, the what, the when and the where questions. These policy changes can also be identified within research and, particularly, in how the research field on the education and learning of adults is defined and delimited (see Chaps.  2 and  3). Thus, while it is clear that the research field of adult education and learning undergoes changes over time and is quite diverse in terms of the current choice of theories, research objects, methodologies and so on, little is known empirically about its current “state of affairs” and how it can be mapped out and characterised scientifically.

    Mapping out the research field of adult education and learning2019Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book discusses the current state of the art in research on the education and learning of adults, and how such research has been transformed through contemporary policy and research practices. Gathering contributions from leading experts in the field, the book draws on previous research, as well as new findings in order to provide a map of this research field and its contemporary history. 

    The chapters address a number of questions, including: What constitutes this research field? What theories and methodologies dominate within the field? What “invisible colleges” are active in shaping this academic field, in marking out its contours and in transforming its contemporary battle zones? Who is publishing in the field and who is deemed worth citing? What is the relationship between the shift in state policy on adult education and the research that is conducted on the education and learning of adults? How has the research field changed over time in various western countries? What do these meta-reflections of the field tell us about possible future research endeavours? 

    Rather than speaking from within the field, this is a book about the research field. The diversity of the chapters provide a fascinating resource for anyone interested in research on the education and learning of adults.
