Subversive Leadership and The Art of War Current
June, 2016 – May, 2018
SSHRC Insight Development Grant
Principal Investigator: Fei Wang

This research seeks to better understand subversiveness through which school leaders seek to transform policies and practices that they perceive as socially unjust. Specifically, through the lens of The Art of War, the project aims to a) define subversiveness in a political, moral, and intellectual sense in relation to school leadership, b) examine how principals perceive and exercise subversiveness, c) identify the possibilities and limits of subversiveness in changing the political procedure or power dynamics at both societal and organizational levels, and d) highlight professional and personal experiences of subversive actions.

Congratulations, Dr. Wang!
