Shaping marginalized identities and indexing deviant behaviours in a special educational needs unit
2012 (English)In: Learning, social interaction and diversity –: Exploring identities in school practices / [ed] Eva Hjörne, Geerdina van der Aalsvoort & Guida de Abreu, Rotterdam: Sense Publisher , 2012, 119-138 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
In this chapter, we are concerned with the local social process through which a group of boys in a special needs practice are identified and described as deviating from the local norms of school conduct (cf. Hester & Francis, 2000). More specifically we will demonstrate how a more permanent (and deviant) identity is talked into being during a remedial activity organized in the special educational needs unit. In the context of such an activity, individual boys’ are attributed a set of emotional, social and behavioural deficiencies, which are made a daily topic of inquiry, in order to remedy the problem behaviours in question.
