Postcolonialism, Globalization, and Education : Engaging Identities, Cultures, and Curriculum
about this item
This collection examines the intertwined relationship of postcolonialism and globalization in relation to education. Specifically, it analyzes the structures, processes, and effects of recolonization, exploitation, and inculcation in schools, communities, and larger systemic contexts. The book highlights the role of agency and social change in questions of local and global dynamics, society, and schooling and in imagining progress and anti-oppressive education. With depth, breadth, and fresh perspectives on theory, research, and educational practice in transnational contexts, contributors offer insights on colonial and capitalist exploitation that shape not only history, politics, and economics, but culture and education.
