Abstract

This essay expands on the concept of educational life and builds on an autonomist Marxist framework that better allows us to understand neoliberalism’s parasitic operations. Following this, the last section will confront the limits of the progressive educational imaginary and offer up for consideration postschool imaginaries. Drawing on Kathi Weeks’ concept of postwork imaginaries, Bourassa considers how postschool imaginaries might be conducive for troubling particular operations that have become embedded in the grammar of schooling and, also, how they might cultivate alternative and affirmative forms of educational life both in the present and ‘after neoliberalism’.
