Abstract

By analyzing over 100 movies and tv shows, the paper explores how postwar audiovisual culture has represented the spaces of the school. The analysis returns a taxonomy with four main models: the frontier (the school as a place to be redeemed from chaos), the fortress (the school as a solid and impregnable repository of meaning) and the ruins (the school as an irredimable space), and the space of liberation (The school as a space to be destructured by goodwilled teachers and students).
