    Studying Like a Communist: Affect, the Party, and the Educational Limits to Capitalism.Derek R. Ford - 2017 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 49 (5):452-461.
    In an effort to theorize educational logics that are oppositional to capitalism, this article explores what it means to study like a communist. I begin by drawing out the tight connection between learning and capitalism, demonstrating that education is not a subset but a motor of political-economic relations. Next, I turn to the concept of study, which is being developed as an educational alternative to learning. While studying represents an educational challenge to capitalism, I argue that there are political limitations (...)

    Toward an Educational Sphereology: Air, Wind, and Materialist Pedagogy.Derek R. Ford & Weili Zhao - 2018 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 50 (5):528-537.
    It’s not uncommon for people to make reference to atmospheres, including in relationship with educational spaces. In this article, we investigate educational atmospheres by turning to Western and Chinese literature on the air and wind. We pursue this task in three phases. First, we examine the Western literature to see the possible strings of thought that would help us reinvigorate the element of air/atmosphere as a foundational component of an educational sphere. Second, we historicize the Chinese notion of wind as (...)

    The Pneumatic Common: Learning in, with and From the Air.Derek R. Ford - 2015 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 47 (13-14):1405-1418.
    Air is an immersive substance that envelopes us and binds us together, yet it has dominantly been taken for granted and left out of educational and other theorizations. This article develops a conceptualization of the pneumatic common in order to address this gap. The specific intervention staged is within recent educational literature on the common by Noah De Lissovoy, Tyson E. Lewis, and Alexander Means. This literature is surveyed and analyzed in relation to educational theory, curriculum, pedagogy, and policy. Claiming (...)

    Re-Imagining Affect with Study: Implications From a Daoist Wind-Story and Yin–Yang Movement.Weili Zhao & Derek R. Ford - 2018 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 37 (2):109-121.
    Within educational philosophy and theory there has recently been a re-turn to the concept and practices of studying as an alternative or oppositional educational logic to push back against learning as the predominant mode of educational engagement. While promising, we believe that this research on studying has been limited in a few ways. First, while the ontological aspects of studying have been examined in a thorough manner, the affective dimension of studying has not yet been investigated. Second, while a diverse (...)

    A Critical Pedagogy of Ineffability: Identity, Education and the Secret Life of Whatever.Derek R. Ford - 2014 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 46 (4):380-392.
    In this article I bring Giorgio Agamben’s notion of ‘whatever singularity’ into critical pedagogy. I take as my starting point the role of identity within critical pedagogy. I call upon Butler to sketch the debates around the mobilization of identity for political purposes and, conceding the contingent necessity of identity, then suggest that whatever singularity can be helpful in moving critical pedagogy from an emancipatory to a liberatory project. To articulate whatever singularity I situate the concept within the work in (...)

    A Figural Education with Lyotard.Derek R. Ford - 2015 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 34 (1):89-100.
    While there was a flurry of articles throughout the 1990s in philosophy of education on Lyotard, there are still several key concepts in his oeuvre that have import for but remain largely underdeveloped or absent in the field. One of the most interesting of these absent concepts is Lyotard’s notion of the figural. In this paper, I take the figural as an educational problematic and ask what new educational insights it can generate in regard to the existing literature. As such, (...)

    Errant Learning for a Foam World: Glissant, Sloterdijk, and the Foam of Pedagogy.Derek R. Ford - 2020 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 39 (3):245-256.
    Through an educational reading of Édouard Glissant and Peter Sloterdijk, this article draws out and develops latent pedagogical philosophies that bear distinct relationships to colonialism and struggles against and beyond colonialism. In particular, it identifies two related educational philosophies that propel colonization and, in turn, proposes a theory of errant learning that might undergird decolonization. It focuses on Glissant’s minor remarks about different conceptions of understanding in order to identify the grasping drive as the educational foundation of the colonizing apparatus. (...)
