Presenter: Sarah DesRoches (McGill University Department of Integrated
Studies in Education)
Title: Discourses and the Self: constructing and unravelling student
identities through multiple, competing, discourses

Date: 12 February 2009
Time: 12:15 to 13:15
Place: CRÉUM seminar room, rm. 309, 2910 Édouard-Montpetit (Metro
Université de Montréal)

Abstract: Norman Fairclough argues that realities are constituted, as well as enabled, by our ability to affirm the presence of competing discourses. Using Dorothy Holland and Jean Lave’s “History in Person,” this paper will explore how a teacher’s use of competing discourses provides a deeper and wider experience of personal identities construction (and unravelling) for her students.
