Description

Basing her theoretical work on interviews with adult education students and educators, Preece (higher education, U. of Surrey, England) uses Foucauldian analysis to describe the discourses driving traditional university adult and continuing education studies. The volume's 11 chapters address the context and theoretical framework for the study; the research framework, including ethical and methodological issues; the context for the group interviews; analysis of selected paperwork issued by one continuing education department; 13 interviews; and analysis of themes found in the interviews.

Contents

Setting the scene; the theoretical framework; research design widening participation - the case study contexts; documentary analysis - DCE and university Z; academic interviews; the participant groups - historicity and regimes of truth; maintaining power relations; talking differently; subjectivities; talking differently re-assessed.
