Abstract:

"What does it mean to learn and educate in these social and historical times? This edited collection engages an international group of education thinkers in a series of ongoing intercultural conversations that speak to the challenges and possibilities of engaging with education, difference and diversity in a globalised world. Shifting across a range of geographical, theoretical, institutional and disciplinary contexts, the contributors identify in their own empirical and theoretical research work examples of localised solutions to the problems of diversity for the practice of education. These "educational enactments" illustrate the interactions of localised and global level discourses within contexts of educational policy and practice, and allow an exploration of how abstract notions of education are applied through education as a practice and/or subjective experience. Mindful of the structural limitations imposed by the regime of globalisation, the book explores the challenges and the agentive possibilities of working across cultural and material boundaries, and provides multiple venues in which to transcend the limitations of addressing educational issues through a single lens. Engaging with both the challenges and the complexities of intercultural conversations in relation to issues of diversity and difference, the book's contributors recognise that their role as educators compels them to engage with the dilemmas as well as the productive possibilities, of what it means to learn and to educate within such 'interesting times'. The book will be of interest to a diverse range of academics, researchers, educators, undergraduate and graduate students in the field of education, particularly in areas of curriculum theory, teacher education, cultural studies and multi-cultural education."--Publisher's record.
