1. Pino Yancovic, Mauricio. Reframing the right to education in the "Chilean neoliberal experiment": a multi-sited case study of community resistance to public school closings.

Degree: PhD, Educational Policy Studies, 2016, University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign

My dissertation research examines how the right to education, stated explicitly in the Chilean constitution, has been interpreted as educational policies are being enacted. I contrast this analysis with the use of the right to education by a group of poor Chilean parents, who in 2014, successfully resisted school closings in their community. I address these issues by conducting a mixed-methods study based on two methodological approaches: A critical discourse analysis of the right to education as it is elaborated in the Chilean constitution and a multi-sited case study in three schools of parent and community resistance to school closings. There are two main findings that can be summarized based on my research: 1) The commission in charge of developing the constitutional right to education did so with the goal of developing an educational market to promote a school choice policy in Chile, shielding it in a neoliberal imaginary of society; and 2) Parents and guardians of my multi-sited case study have an active role to play in the policy-making process, they cannot be reduced to educational consumers but must be understood as politically engaged persons that can articulate a resistance process by networking with other political agents. A general conclusion of my dissertation is that the right to education should be reframed considering Tomasevski 4 A's scheme, and be reviewed based on how inclusive an educational system is, how diverse and non-standardized the provision of this education is, and if the relationship of meso-level institutions with schools is actually supporting the realization of this fundamental human right.

2. MacLeod, Suzanne. From the "rising tide" to solidarity: disrupting dominant crisis discourses in dementia social policy in neoliberal times.

Degree: School of Social Work, 2014, University of Victoria

As a social worker practising in long-term residential care for people living with dementia, I am alarmed by discourses in the media and health policy that construct persons living with dementia and their health care needs as a threatening “rising tide” or crisis. I am particularly concerned about the material effects such dominant discourses, and the values they uphold, might have on the collective provision of care and support for our elderly citizens in the present neoliberal economic and political context of health care. To better understand how dominant discourses about dementia work at this time when Canada’s population is aging and the number of persons living with dementia is anticipated to increase, I have rooted my thesis in poststructural methodology. My research method is a discourse analysis, which draws on Foucault’s archaeological and genealogical concepts, to examine two contemporary health policy documents related to dementia care – one national and one provincial. I also incorporate some poetic representation – or found poetry – to write up my findings. While deconstructing and disrupting taken for granted dominant crisis discourses on dementia in health policy, my research also makes space for alternative constructions to support discursive and health policy possibilities in solidarity with persons living with dementia so that they may thrive. Advisors/Committee Members: (advisor), Strega, Susan (supervisor).
