This chapter examines how Dreamfields’ professed return to more 'traditional' disciplinarian methods involves the deployment of surveillance, coercion, division, and audit to guarantee the consistent production of quantifiable outcomes. This complex of systems does not revert back to the imagined good old days when students respected authority and were proficient in the three R’s, but shows how multiple logics of power are at work on the body to create a narrow, dense web of disciplines. This ‘well-oiled machine’ works to both hold the body in place while also moving and structuring it via classed, raced and gendered neo-liberal norms.
