Product Description

Published: 2000
ISBN: 978-0-9586571-4-3
Pages: vi+176
Imprint: Post Pressed


What is education's new timespace? What are the boundaries for imagining that distinguish the educational field in the late 1990s? Education's New Timespace: visions from the present is an eclectic ensemble of educational research that speaks to the possibilities and limits which constitute the educational field. It is a collection of cutting edge work that travels between divergent visions of life in a post-Post era, sketching out new research languages for expressing the complexities of educational endeavours.

The five sections, Refiguring Educational Truths, Reconceptualising Curricula, Reworking Teachers' Work, Relearning Learning and Reminding Authority(ies) present the commonalities and differences that are available within and across national contexts and educational themes. Traversing Australia, Fiji, Indonesia, Kenya, Korea, and Nigeria, the volume illuminates the discursive grids on which education stakes its multiple truths.

The book's contribution lies in its undermining of a research-practice gap, in its opening of discursive space for an array of interdisciplinary methodologies, and in the multi-vocal utterances of multiply-located educational workers. Post-colonialisms, behaviourisms, feminisms, curriculum theory, educational psychology, poststructuralisms and strategies that are not yet name-able inhabit the text. As such, the text inhabits the present, illustrates the present and is the present - a multiplicitous, ambiguous present that calls on all of us to rethink our preferred frameworks for seeing and hearing educational truths.
