This blog was originally produced as part of my academic study for the award of Master of Arts (Education). It’s purpose was to gather research evidence through the form of discourse in the tradition of postmodernism, inspired predominantly by the work of Michael Foucault – particularly that on power, discourse, governmentailty and ethics.

The potential of blogging as a research tool and also as a space where resistance or “counter conduct” could take place and

…where the control, surveillance and repression of the dominant are least able to reach…

has inspired me ever since. So I continue here with thoughts around philosophy, education, politics etc. and hope to be joined by contributors who consider themselves

…close confidants who share similar experiences of domination. (Scott , 1990)
