Reading List

The relational research program builds on a substantial and diverse body of existing knowledge. It integrates insights from French social theory (particularly that of Pierre Bourdieu), relational sociology (e.g., Francois Depelteau, Pierpaolo Donati, Nick Crossley), philosophy, organizational studies, critical management studies, political science, public administration, history and given our disciplinary location, recognized educational administration thinkers such as Richard Bates, Colin Evers and Gabriele Lakomski, Thomas Barr Greenfield, and contemporaries such as Helen Gunter, Pat Thomson, John Smyth and Fenwick English.

 

This reading list in the making contains texts that are thematically relevant to the Relational Research Program.

 

We here offer a selected list of relevant sources, but we hope eventually to produce a database enabling online search, tagging and entry.
