Discussion with Tom Popkewitz in Policy Futures International Webinar -series

Professor Brunila acted as a discussant for professor Tom Popkewitz in an international webinar arranged by the Aarhus University, on March 9th, 2022.

Professor Popkewitz gave an interesting and thought-provoking talk “Desires, Calculations, and Making Kinds of People: The Modern University Has Never Been “An Ivory Tower”. In the talk professor Popkewitz examined both rational and affective folds of educational assessments and calculations and suggested that the education should be considered from a point of view of populations, and what kinds of people are “made” through education.

Another discussant in the webinar was professor Luis Miguel Carvalho.
