Teacher Education Reform as Political Theater: Russian Policy Dramas
A CITED Conversation with Dr Elena Aydarova, Auburn University
In this CITED Conversation, Elena Aydarova will discuss her new book, Teacher Education Reform as Political Theater: Russian Policy Dramas. The book explores how globally circulated policy scripts became the foundation for the redesign of teacher preparation in Russia. Drawing on the findings of a multi-sited ethnography, Dr Aydarova analyzes how the dramas of teacher education reforms are connected with designs for conservative social change. While the details of how those dramas unfold in different sociocultural contexts vary, the talk invites teacher educators to consider how to reclaim political theater as a tool for liberation and emancipatory social transformation.
Elena Aydarova is an Assistant Professor of Social Foundations at Auburn University.
