"Olssen ! brings Foucault to life and sheds new light on understanding his work...Educationalists and scholars across the disciplines will welcome this interpretation of Foucault." Michael A. Peters, University of Glasgow "Olssen distills in brilliant and succinct language the core of Foucault's most important insights. This is a book that every student should read in order to understand how to link theory to practice, and educational thought to legacy and work of one of Europe's great thinkers." Henry Giroux, McMaster University Michel Foucault is arguably one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century, and his works are some of the most difficult to grasp. Mark Olssen offers an accessible overview of Foucault's thought, putting into context the relevance of Foucault's ideas. Olssen adds important new insights to Foucault scholarship by bringing to light the influences of other thinkers such as Marx, Nietzsche, Gramsci, Habermas, and others on Foucault's development as a thinker, and their influence on the deep historical materialist strand that grounds and uniquely characterizes so much of Foucault's thought.

Based on the assumption that higher education policy texts are cultural texts and can thus be interpreted as such, this dissertation has deconstructed some of the major cultural narratives inherent in US and European policy documents and analyzed them with regard to their function for the transatlantic dialogue. An analysis of cultural narratives brings to light underlying beliefs and perceptions prevailing in a particular culture. With regard to higher education policy, this means that a society's understanding of the function of education, but also hidden agendas and undisclosed objectives are revealed.Four such cultural narratives have been analyzed in this dissertation on the basis of a cultural critical approach which includes the Foucauldian theory of governmentality as well as aspects of postcolonial theory (Edward Said): the narrative of "coopetition," the narrative of decline, especially with regard to Humboldtian values and the alleged Americanization of European higher education, the narrative of the frontier and the question whether the Bologna Process can be read metaphorically as a European frontier myth, and the narrative of homeland security as it plays out in US education policy making. The analysis revealed that the transatlantic dialogue is shaped by interdependencies and a tug of war of cooperation and competition, but also that education fulfils different functions on both sides of the Atlantic. It also shows that globally, higher education has come to be seen as a major tool of governance. Thus, education policy documents can be regarded as highly relevant texts for a cultural critical analysis of the transatlantic dialogue from an American Studies perspective.

This book introduces pre-service and in-service foreign language teachers to the basic concepts of critical educational study as applied to the sociological position occupied by foreign language education in the United States. Although contemporary foreign language teachers typically know about second language acquisition and instructional methodology, they are not prepared to understand issues of power in relation to, for example, language variety, language status, and education. The author addresses issues such as the supposed "failure" of foreign language education, the educational filter role played by language classes, the concept of foreignness as seen in national standards, language curricula and textbooks, and the implications of these issues in terms of power relationships and cultural mediation both in and out of the classroom. The reader is encouraged to analyze the forms of cultural struggle which can be found within the foreign language classrooms of the United States including the likely impact those struggles have on members of the dominant and subordinate cultures. Teachers are led through the development of skills in critical reflection and pedagogical application geared to social justice.
