Introduction to Part II: Renewed Educative Constitutions of Future Conditions

by Hervé Varenne - 2007

The five articles in this section take us in an unusual direction—unless one pays close attention to Cremin’s own practice in his historical investigations. If education is as much about teaching as about learning, and about setting up conditions as well as finding out about them, then we must also pay attention to the processes through which those responsible for the legitimate constitutions of institutions deliberately shape those whom they recruit, change their practices, and even reconstitute their very organization.

    E-mail Author
    HERVE VARENNE is professor of education at Teachers College, Columbia University. As a cultural anthropologist, his major interests center on the processes that produce particular conditions for human beings in history, and their consequences. His most recent book, written with Ray McDermott, deals with the consequences of American schooling (Successful Failure, Westview 1998). Three recent articles develop the themes: with Ray McDermott, "Reconstructing Culture" (In New Horizons in the Ethnography of Education, ed. G. Spindler, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 2006); with Mary Cotter, "Dr. Mom? Constituting, and Playing with, Statuses during Hospital Labor" (Human Studies, 2006); and “On NCATE Standards and Culture at Work” (Anthropology and Education Quarterly, 2007).
