Silence within and beyond Pedagogical Settings
(1st ed. 2020)
This book explores the significance of silence within and beyond pedagogical contexts.
Silence is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon for everyday life: since schools mirror society, it is also significant in education.
While silence can be experienced in a multitude of different ways, the author reflects on whether silence itself can bear a message: is there an aspect of dialogue in silence, or is it a language all of its own?
This book examines a variety of silences essential for education, examining such topics as silence and aspects of power, silent students, and the relationship between listening and silence.
Drawing on a range of empirical data, the author elucidates the significance of silence in pedagogical contexts.
