David Kupferman, School of Teaching and Learning, presented a paper at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) annual meeting in Toronto, Canada this week. AERA is the largest and most prestigious education research conference in North America. His paper, titled “Naked School Lunch: Neoliberal Education Policy as William S. Burroughs’ Control Society,” looks at how the writings of William Burroughs allow us to analyze neoliberal surveillance and control in schools, as well as how to engage with such policy reforms. Kupferman is also the immediate past Chair of the Foucault and Contemporary Theory in Education Special Interest Group at AERA, and he helped run the group’s annual business meeting while in Toronto.
