Despite Ourselves? Education Studies: between spirit and ‘passing on’

Abstract

This article presents findings from a curricular intervention made by lecturers on the Education Studies degree programme at Newman University College (a programme that stands alone without any proximal relation to teacher training). In so doing, it engages with the “spirit” or “ideal subject” of Education Studies in relation to its institutionalised practices.
