Since its emergence in the early 1980s, actor-network theory (ANT) has inspired radical studies in sociology, technology, cultural geography, organization and management, environmental planning and health care. Yet its profile in the field of educational research has to date been limited, despite the innovative work of educational researchers who have pushed ANT to open new questions and methods. Bringing together researchers from the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States, Researching Education Through Actor-Network Theory focuses attention on this innovative work, illustrating myriad and provocative actor-network approaches. These enable a unique analysis of educational issues and reconfigure our understandings of educational change.
