"How critical is health education?"

Deana is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University, Australia.   Her research interests are framed by a concern about the political and moral work that is ‘done’ under the guise of improving the health of children and young people in educational settings.  Her research in draws from Foucauldian and post Foucauldian writings on governmentality, to consider the various mentalities that are assembled together in policy and curriculum and how they are translated into key pedagogical spaces.
