Abstract

In this text, I summarize and present contemporary voices of critique of education, that come from anthropology and some related disciplines. Contemporary critique of education attempts to demonstrate how educational practice is linked with global political and economic power. The focus in this text has been on these critiques as forms of resistance to neoliberalization and commoditization of education, trends thatare now prevalent in America and most European countries. Finally, I discuss the possibilities and dangers of this process for anthropology in Serbia – in the political and methodological sense, as well as offer some possible strategies for dealing with the transformation of contemporary educational sphere.
