This edited collection brings together scholars from Canadian and international institutions to discuss educationalization, a trend in modern societies that involves transferring social responsibilities onto the school system.

This book brings a new dimension to the literature on educationalization by examining the concept in relation to Catholicism, Indigenous issues, the right to education, and historical studies grounded in both Canada and Chile. In these contributions, the book represents an attempt to both deepen the current discussion on the construction and use of educationalization as a concept as well as invite further exploration of this subject in relation to the increasing digitalization of life in the twenty-first century.

Rosa Bruno-Jofré is professor and former dean (2000-2010) of the Faculty of Education, cross-appointed to the Department of History, Faculty of Arts and Science, at Queen’s University.

Editorial Reviews

"Educationalization is often used as a critical concept, denoting the tendencies of modern societies to assign responsibilities to public schools that are not being adequately addressed by other institutions. However, the same concept can be read in a more positive way, denoting the growing recognition that many vexed social problems have an unavoidably educational dimension. This impressive collection of authors largely takes the latter view and the result is a conversation about the meaning and purpose of education from both historical and contemporary perspectives, ranging from Capuchin missionaries in Chile in the nineteenth century to the impact of modern digital technologies." - Nicholas C. Burbules, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
