Professor Michael Apple

mike_apple_0-picProfessor Apple has been proposed by Professor David Gillborn, Centre for Research in Race & Education and we are currently finalising dates and activity for May and June 2015.

Michael W. Apple is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading critical educators. His reputation is built on an exceptional body of scholarship that extends from the 1970s to the present day. Professor Apple’s standing is equally strong in numerous parts of the world, including North America, Europe, South America (especially Brazil and Argentina), South Africa and Asia (particularly China). His truly global impact can be gauged by the many translations of his books and by the constant international demand for his services as a speaker and collaborative progressive educator.

As John Bascom Professor he holds one of the most prestigious university-wide chairs at the University of Wisconsin, Madison: In addition to more than 300 journal articles, Professor Apple has authored and edited more than 40 books, many of them translated into additional languages. These include many landmark publications, for example:

  • Ideology and Curriculum (1979, rev. 1990 & 2004: international editions include Brazil, Spain, Korea, Japan, and Greece).
  • Education and Power (1982, rev 1985 & 1995. Includes Chinese, Portuguese, Taiwanese, Spanish, Thai, Korean, Greek and Brazilian editions).
  • Teachers and Texts (1986: Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish editions).
  • Official Knowledge (1993 & 2000: Brazilian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese editions).
  • Democratic Schools (1995 & 2007 with James Beane: Taiwanese, Spanish, Japanese, Brazilian, and two Indian editions - in Hindi and English).
  • Cultural Politics and Education (1996: Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Brazilian, Ukrainian and Chinese editions).
  • Educating the ‘Right’ Way (2001 & 2006: Greek, Spanish, Brazilian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Portuguese editions).
