Abstract:The findings of the study can contribute to a better understanding of how a teacher's construction of his pedagogical conceptions and practice is influenced by the social context embedded within a particular network of power relations. His resistance also suggests strategies that the current power relations might be challenged. Lastly, the use of Foucault's theorization of power, knowledge, and subjectivity can help us explore the dialectic between the lifeworld of the individual and the social structure in which he or she is situated.
