Education as Self-Fashioning (ESF)

About Education as Self-Fashioning
In Education as Self-Fashioning, we explore the idea of cultivating self from many different perspectives. We consider writings about education by intellectuals working in various fields, with the aim of articulating the ways that education can be used to structure one’s thinking, one’s self, and ultimately one’s life as a whole.
