In the area of poststructuralist theorists, two well-known names would be Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida. However these two theorists did not specifically apply their work to the field of education. Deborah Youdell has applied post structuralist thought to the field of education and is the author of a number of useful books in this area. See for example: Youdell, D. (2006). Diversity, inequality, and a post-structural politics for education. Discourse: Studies in the cultural politics of education.
