This paper was presented at the Society for Women in Philosophy Conference 2016, Precarity, Rage and Reason.
It explores how my research project which sought to extend parental voice in a primary school, through the implementation of Community Philosophy, might actually have further contained voices, especially precarious voices. I explain how what might be seen as a problem has actually helped contribute to knowledge regarding the minutiae of parental voice within schools. Using the work of Wendy Brown, I explore how voices can be contained by the need to be creditworthy. Finally, I draw upon the work of Luce Irigaray and Jacques Rancière to suggest how we might counter such containment and move towards a model of dissensus and thus begin to understand parental voice and engagement differently.
