This symposium consists of four dramatizations of praxis. The first, Disjuncture, a poem-as-preface, introduces the overarching theme of our collaborative research into the relationship between the work of practitioners in diverse higher education settings, the constraints imposed upon them by governmental intervention in education and the implications for learning and teaching. Each of the subsequent pieces, presented as Readers’ Theatre, illustrates specific instances of political meddling at the site of practice and the ways and means deployed by their protagonists to break the rules. In the ensuing discussion we will consider, firstly, issues arising from the perspectives of attendees at the symposium, and secondly, the effectiveness of our methods towards problematizing politics in education; that is, using data drawn from the world of lived experience that are then re-embodied through the drama.
