Connecting Histories of Education : Transnational and Cross-Cultural Exchanges in (Post)Colonial Education Hardback

Edited by Barnita Bagchi, Eckhardt Fuchs, Kate Rousmaniere

Description

The history of education in the modern world is a history of transnational and cross-cultural influence.

This collection explores those influences in (post) colonial and indigenous education across different geographical contexts.

The authors emphasize how local actors constructed their own adaptation of colonialism, identity, and autonomy, creating a multi-centric and entangled history of modern education.

In both formal as well as informal aspects, they demonstrate that transnational and cross-cultural exchanges in education have been characterized by appropriation, re-contextualization, and hybridization, thereby rejecting traditional notions of colonial education as an export of pre-existing metropolitan educational systems.
