Abstract [en]

How democracy and emancipation thread throughteacher education is currently under theorized and there is a paucity of cross-nationalstudies examining the problem. In this study we draw from a number of theoreticalframeworks for their discursive positioning of democracy and emancipation in teachereducation and what we are calling teacher educators’ democratic assignment (Bingham, Biesta & Rancière, 2010, Dewey 1959/16;Freire 1972). The framework allowed us identify key words which we then usedfor a limited content analysis of policy documents in two European countries,Sweden and the Republic of Ireland, in two separate timelines 2000/2002 and 2010/2012.Our findings indicate that, despite significant cultural and contextualdifferences between the two education systems, key words linked to democracyand emancipation have significantly decreased in policy documentation in bothcountries in this timeline. This prompts our hypothesis that a paradigm shifthas occurred in the discursive positioning of teacher educators’ democraticassignment. The findings suggest a deeper discourse analysis of the four documentsis needed as the next phase in the research design. The findings haveimplications, well beyond two nation states, for contemporary democratic issuesin teacher education and society that require collective consciousness andaction.
