My research examines how educational reforms are inscribed in social and cultural changes historically and presently. In focus of the research I am involved in is the institutional practice of teaching and learning primarily in compulsory schooling. What counts as knowledge in school? How is the selection of content legitimated? How are teaching and learning organized in educational settings and why?
