Educational Futurism and Queer Theory: Unstable Identities, Nonlinear Time and Fading Figure of a Future in Education

Student: Dmitrii Buev

Supervisor: Taras Pashchenko

Faculty: Institute of Education

Educational Programme: Pedagogy (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2021

Educational futurism is a focusing on the estimated image of a future while articulating goals and purposes of education. It is considered objectionable by many theorists. In the text I critically analyse the concept of educational futurism engaging queer theory, highlight its negative consequences and recognize the way to reject it through depoliticization of education. I reconceptualize children's identity with a help from queer theory. Then, involving epistemological basis of social constructionism and agential realism, I attempt to identify some of the ways of reality construction (particularly, discursive and material) within educational activities. In conclusion I offer some ways to apply the results, as well as options for further discussion and research. Key words: educational futurism, queer theory, reproductive futurism, identity, normativity, heteronormativity, temporality
