Example text

I am conscious that for me the data collection, analysis and writing acts owe as much to what can be imagined as they do to empirical forms of visual, oral and text-based evidence. This may be a point for debate, in view of the traditional epistemological perspective that equates knowing with a highly empirical and scientific truth seeking. In a climate of methodological conservatism, it is not necessarily an advantage to acknowledge the connections between the art of the imagined and educational research, yet I would argue that the connections and mental leaps that need to occur in narrative analysis owe much to what can be imagined.

Slee and Allan (2001:178) discuss the extension of schooling as a ‘significant force for disablement’ via these mechanisms for observation. They suggest: Schools are cartographic police. Exclusion proceeds through deep structural and broad cultural mechanisms to invigilate a shifting spectrum of diversity. Generally speaking, the boundaries in this sub-map are sharpest along the lines of disability, race, gender, class, sexuality, bilingualism, ethnicity, and geographic position. The personal attributes of the ‘other’, individuals or particular groups in society, are offered to bridge the gaps that are generated by educational practices which generate and reinforce hegemonic values.

This is exemplified by Bentham’s panopticon prison design, where the observer, situated in a central observation tower, is surrounded by individual cells allowing for the observation and subsequent self-regulation of the subject (Foucault, 1991:200). The interchange between the observer and the observed is significant, as are particular ways of seeing. The presumption that there is a ‘shared’ or universal view ignores the positioning of the observer and the role that hegemonic ways of seeing have within discourses of power such as child health and education, as the ‘normalising’ lens becomes the ‘normalised’ lens.
