Performative politics and relational ethics in the primary school classroom

Laura Teague, Goldsmiths, University of London, discusses Judith Butler’s work which seeks out to suspend the desire to completely know the other, and discusses these in relation to the pedagogic relationship in the classroom. It draws upon existing accounts of performative reinscription as a politics to disrupt exclusionary schooling practices and discusses these alongside Butler’s theories of relationality. In so doing, it argues that the pedagogic relationship is the space within which performative reinscription occurs and which holds the potential for more ethical encounters between self and other.
