  1. Postmodernism and Education.Robin Usher - 1994 - Routledge.
    Postmodernism and Education responds to the interest in postmodernism as a way of understanding social, cultural and economic trends. Robin Usher and Richard Edwards explore the impact which postmodernism has had upon the theory and practice of education, using a broad analysis of postmodernism and an in-depth introduction to key writers in the field, including Lacan, Derrida, Foucault and Lyotard.

    Lyotard’s Performance.Robin Usher - 2006 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 25 (4):279-288.
    Starting with Lyotard's characterisation of postmodernity as incredulity, this is related to another of his key concepts - that of 'performativity'. Lyotard appears to deploy performativity to characterise those technologies that bring about the optimisation of efficient performance. However, there is another sense of performativity where it is linked to performance. Performance conditions the possibility of any and all performatives, or to put it another way, as performance is itself enabled by performativity, so too performativity is realised through its performance.

  6. Globalisation & Pedagogy: Space, Place and Identity.Richard Edwards & Robin Usher - 2007 - Routledge.
    With different pedagogic practices come different ways of examining them and fresh understandings of their implications and assumptions. It is the examination of these changes and developments that is the subject of this book. The authors examine a number of questions posed by the rapid march of globalisation, incuding: What is the role of the teacher, and how do we teach in the context of globalisation? What curriculum is appropriate when people and ideas become more mobile? How do the technologies (...)

    A Society of Signs? Mediating a Learning Society.Richard Edwards & Robin Usher - 1999 - British Journal of Educational Studies 47 (3):261 - 274.
    This article critiques certain notions of a learning society. These are framed largely in economic and humanist frameworks of competitiveness and social exclusion. This overlooks the implications of information, communications and media technologies, and the linguistic turn in social theory. These suggest a learning society can be framed as a 'society of signs'. Some of the possible implications of the latter are outlined.
