BARRETO, Raquel Goulart y LEHER, Roberto. From the discourse and conditionalities of the World Bank, higher education "emerges" tertiary. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.39, pp.423-436. ISSN 1413-2478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-24782008000300002.
This article discusses changes in higher education produced by the recontextualization of the World Bank's discourse in Brazil, considering the ways in which "governance-related conditionalities" have been converted into political practices. It consists of two parts. The first one, centred on discourse as a material form of ideology, analyzes the "key publications" related to higher education, based on the features of what can be called a "discourse of emergences". The second part approaches the material dimension of the new imperialism, elicits its fundamental contradictions and focuses the conditions of production of shifting from the university-based model to the tertiary one.
Palabras clave : discourse; new imperialism; recontextualization; higher education.
