Pedagogies for Internationalising Research Education : Intellectual Equality, Theoretic-Linguistic Diversity and Knowledge Chuangxin Hardback
Part of the Education Dialogues with/in the Global South series
This book explores pedagogical concepts, metaphors and images of non-white, non-western researchers and research students on the inter/nationalization of education.
Specifically, this book draws on the intellectual resources of China and India to explore the pedagogical dynamics and dimensions of the localization/globalization of education with non-Western characteristics.
It introduces theoretic-linguistic non-Western concepts from the Tamil, Sanskrit and Chinese languages for use in Western, English-only education and redefines the intellectual basis for internationalising education.
Debating whether `international education' is Western-centric in terms of its privileging and promotion of Euro-American theoretical knowledge, this book contends that the internationalisation of Western-centric education can benefit from the intellectual power and powerfully relevant theorising performed by non-Western international students.
It formulates a democratic vision for the internationalisation of education, with the potential to create transnational solidarity and constitute a forum for mobilising debates about global knowledge and power structures.
It also provides key tools to use non-Western theoretic-linguistic tools and modes of critique in research undertaken in Anglophone Western universities.
