What do people remember about their school experience? What do the memories of generations of ex-students have in common? What do these memories tell us about the power relations and emotions produced by the institution of school? What effect does school have on the formation of the "self"? Remembering School uses a unique theoretical and methodological framework constructed from the theories of Michel Foucault and post-structural feminism to explore the collective memory of school. This book draws on a wide range of stories to explore memories of punishment, bullying, gender and race relations, and pleasure. Erica Southgate uses a clear, often witty, writing style to provide a provocative account of the enduring power relations of schooling and their lasting impact on people.
"Erica Southgate's book brings exemplary analytic rigor to bear on moving and terrifying accounts of violence in schools. It demonstrates carefully but vividly the order of things disciplinary in classrooms, virtually unchanged from the beginnings of formal schooling to the present day. This is a must-read book for anyone interested in the application of postmodern thought to practical issues." (Stephen J. Ball, Karl Mannheim Professor of Sociology of Education, University of London, Institute of Education)
"In its theoretical range, empirical richness, and analytical intelligence, Erica Southgate's book not only sets the standard for any future work on school memory, but also contributes to our understanding of physical and verbal punishment and pleasure in the recollected lives of children and youth and perhaps, even more, in social life generally. It is a specific work in school memory, and is within a specific tradition - Foucaldian microanalyses of biopower as well as feminism and qualitative school studies. But by its internal, reflective willingness to criticize its own traditions of work and by the strength and sensitivity of the analysis, 'Remembering School' goes further, making a contribution to questions of power, discourse, body, emotions, and the pain and pleasure in everyday life."
