Description

The late Joe Kincheloe once wrote that '. . . the amazing Deakin Mafia provided innovative and unprecedented critical scholarship on education for a few short years'. Informed by various theoretical perspectives (eg., critical theory, neo-Marxist, poststructuralist, postcolonial, feminist, critical literacy, Bourdieuian, Foucauldian) key Deakin University scholars pursued their commitments to social justice though education. A certain criticality characterised their work. Individually and collectively they created a national and international reputation for critical scholarship in education. Since that time (the 1980s and 90s), however, most of the Deakin 'mafia' have moved to senior academic posts elsewhere in Australian and internationally and their influence in educational research and discourse now continues as members of the 'Deakin diaspora'.
